I just bought a very fine watch off Ebay (pix to follow soon!) and, at least here in Germany, all watches from a pro dealer are now sent to an expert - paid by Ebay! - to ascertain whether they are not a fake. With the congrats-it's-an-original message, you get a little scan-able card with the watch's serial number on it that connects you to an online database.
Now this is quite nice, what with fakes getting better than the originals these days and whatnot.
This is especially nice because if you want to flip it, you already have an expertise ... or is it? Would you trust that Ebay card and expertise? Especially a few years later?
Would love to hear your thoughts!
