Hi, I´m looking for a discontinued Seiko model and I found it on Chrono24 with box and papers. The watch comes from Singapore and the dealer seems proffesional, as it has made lots of sales.
Should I go through?
my experience with professional dealers on Chrono24 has only been positive.
Ordered through Chrono24 with a private seller. Chrono24 has a function where they won't release fund to the seller until the buyer does so, so in the case the watch is not as described, there's some safety net.
I'm sure sellers with "Professional" tags are actual watch dealers. As usual though, always ask for more photos.
I sold a watch on there with no issues. They are a legit site and do a lot to make sure sellers are legit as well.
Look at the rating for the dealer. Also how long they been on the site. Always evaluate if the buy feels good in your stomach. The process is that you pay when order but the money is held by C24 until you received the watch and you had the chance to evaluate it and approve the transaction. Within EU there is a 2 week grace period within you can return the goods without any reasons. I don’t know if that is applicable world wide. If any problems in a purchase the C24 is surprisingly active and helpful trying to straighten questionmarks out and find solutions.
I've bought and sold many watches on Chrono24, always without any problems or even small hickups. Totally recommend it.
Still, it is always safer to buy from professional dealers, as you can return the item.
From what I know Chrono24 are all legit dealers.
Thanks for the info. I've just paid. I revised everything you told me. The dealer has a 4.8 rating and has been on C24 since 2012 so I feel comfortable.
Good luck with your purchase.
