    Dugena Dessau - seller

    Hello everyone,

    I'm new to this section of watchuseek, I've lurked and posted on f71/72 for a couple years now. In the process, I ran across a beautiful chronograph, the dugena dessau, which turns out to be German. I've been trying to source a vendor for several weeks now but have been unsuccessful in finding someone willing to ship to the US. I did locate a company that sells both on amazon and eBay called design4stars. I don't speak German, nor am I familiar with their companies so I am a bit skeptical about the purchase.

    Has anyone here had experience with this vendor, or in the alternative, do you know of a seller willing to ship to the US? Many thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Ordering through amazon should be safe or ask [email protected] for advice.

    Thank you Mike and Happy for your replies! I did some further research with google translate, and it looks like the main complaint the seller had was over Christmas last year a number of packages arrived late. There were no substantive issues with the product. I also got in touch with American Express who assured me they would do a charge back if the item arrived in any other condition but as described new.

    I made a best offer, so we shall see if I get it, but as soon as I know I will keep everyone updated, and of course pictures to prove it happened. Thanks again!

    Sadly pics won't be coming anytime soon. I backed out at the last minute. Right now I am exploring several sites and waffling between that and eBay. Of course I let everyone know what happens, truth be told I will get the watch, I just have to go through that phase of justification. I hope to have a better idea after this weekend. Thanks again for all of the responses!

    Any update? I'm in a similar position myself, just about four months later...

    As it turns out yes! I placed my order on December 28 on eBay. I'm a bit concerned as the seller has not marked the item as shipped yet. I sent him a message last Friday and did not get a response. After another week I will file a claim but for now I'm hanging in there. If I get it I will post pics!

    Best,
    Chris

    Mroatman,

    For some reason my response to your post isn't showing up so I reposted it here:
    "As it turns out yes! I placed my order on December 28 on eBay. I'm a bit concerned as the seller has not marked the item as shipped yet. I sent him a message last Friday and did not get a response. After another week I will file a claim but for now I'm hanging in there. If I get it I will post pics!"

    So I posted that a little over a week ago, the seller finally responded last Thursday, and I received the watch today. It is in new condition, with box sleeve, leather box, papers, hang tag, etc. so as far as the item goes, I have it, and it's perfect. The watch is everything I expected, the size is perfect, not too large with a good wrist presence. I was a bit concerned it would be hard to read but in person it presents very clearly. The registers are simple and don't crowd the face whole still giving it a unique appearance. Overall I am thrilled. I cannot describe how excited I was to see the package from Deutschland waiting for me!!!

    That said, it is a shame this seller is the only option because his responsiveness leaves a lot to be desired. It has been a nerve racking three weeks, and if you had asked me yesterday if I thought I was being scammed, my answer would have been yes. However, the watch came, in one piece, and it works.

    I will try to post pics in the next couple of days (total tease I know).

    Thanks to to everyone for all of your support!
