So i've noticed that in private dealings, whether or not it has the stamped paper (purchased from ad) is an important issue.
I mean I would feel much more comfortable buying something that was purchased from AD as well, but what exactly is the purpose for this? Assuming that the original warranty date has passed, is there any merit in getting a pre-owned item that has the stamped warranty or not? Or is this only for the "I feel comfortable buying it because it somehow proves its authenticity"? (Which I'm assuming impacts huge on its resale value? Typically how much discount should I look for for items without stamped warranties?)
There is a deal that I'm looking forward to soon, and the watch has box but no papers, except that it was "sent to Govberg for repair, and they (apparently) sent it to the manufacturer service center for the repair, and came back with 2 years of Govberg warranty". I read and heard lots of posts about Govberg, and I think they are pretty safe and legit business, but can this "Govberg service receipt" somehow make its connection to the authenticity of the watch? If then, should I not worry that it wasn't purchased originally from someone who's not an A.D.?
