    Legit eBay 756 Diapal? Help!

    The link below has a 756 diapal which I've negotiated a deal and have two days to accept. Should I? Anyone see any red flags? The seller appears established as a good watch vendor; he's outside the US but that's common with Sinn. The box and papers are not included which is a strike.
    Photos look good to me, but I'm no expert.
    Good find or beware?

    Well, I once sold an IWC on ebay without box and papers. Some people just don't save that stuff. It does raise a concern, but I don't think it's fatal. As they say, "buy the seller" to the extent you can determine his credentials. The watch looks legit from the pics. The Diapal is a great looking watch. My only gripe about it is that superfluous phony "GMT" hand; no such thing as a 12-hour GMT in my opinion. But I digress. If you made a good deal, I say proceed, assuming you have ebay buyer protection, just in case.

    Thanks for the reply. Ya I would be paying with PayPal for protection and a past buyer in the feedback mentioned him offering money back without issue. You're right about buying the seller.

    I own one and can tell you it's a spectacular watch. It wears wonderfully on a 3 ring Zulu strap too. Definitely a keeper watch. Looks like the seller has plenty of high end transactions.

    I was hoping to get the eye of someone who owns this model, let alone two versions plus the 757's.
    So to your eye you don't see anything out of place in the photos?

    The watch looks great to me. I dont think you have to worry about the seller. He has a 100% rating and been around since 2007. He also has a lot of high end watches for sale. I own a 757 Diapal, wear it every day and absolutely love it! It came with the bracelet on it and also with the leather original band. I have yet to take the bracelet off and try the leather. I watch Sinn a lot on ebay. Bracelets come up quite often. If your persistent you will find one at a good price.

    Here's also some more choices.

    Looks like there is a 756 Diapal with a bracelet for the same money and its negotiable in there too.

    I ended up deciding on a Omega Speedmaster 3572.50, which is the manual moon watch with the hexilite on top and saphire display back on the steel bracelet.
    Yearlyer this year I had to sell my main watch (Bell & Ross BR03-92) to help cover closing costs for a house. Decided the Omega would be a better "go with everything" daily wear than the Sinn, but it was a hard call.
    All the advice from everyone was very good, thank you! :)
