    Question Scored a 42MM SS with Link Bracelet for $238 (poorly described eBay listing)

    Have a look...I think I just saved about $500.

    Fella had 150+ feedback, answered questions, and seemingly just didn't realize how to correctly describe the watch for max sale price.

    He listed it as 'iwatch' with two photos, and it appears nobody else noticed it was a $999 watch.

    Even if I got screwed and the bracelet is aftermarket (which I asked and he said in message it is not - and the side photo looks genuine) I can still slap one of my custom alligator/ostrich deployant straps on it and re-sell for $350-400 for a working 42MM SS and keep the bracelet for my other watch.

    Here's the listing. Iwatch | eBay and pictures...look closely at the side shot. Looks OEM to me.

    Looks like you may have benefited from the skepticism of everyone else.

    The lighting is not at all flattering, especially for the sides of the bracelet links -- they look inconsistent in how they reflect the light.

    No box? At least it'll come with the charging puck.

    No box, but I can pick one up for $35-40 empty. (worth it if I go for resale)
