    Default Is it safe . . .

    To buy a luxury watch via the internet? Like a real Rolex or any other luxury make? Are there ways to verify the legitimacy of the seller and merchandise?

    Of course, the safest thing is to buy from an AD, especially one that has a brick mortar store.

    Otherwise, you need to get references, and those can easily be faked. Caveat emptor.

    I would rather buy preowned from an active forum member than online grey market.

    Go to the actual site of the watch in question. Just about all of them provide links, or at least web addresses, of their Authorized Dealers.

    you can, if you buy the seller not the watch, there are good deals out there, but now with so many fakes or gray market offerings, it can be really hard to tell, reciepts get faked, boxes, paperwork, serial numbers, they all can be lost in the shuffle. A face to face experince is always the best, or at least in my opinion.

    good luck, and let us know what you end up getting, also what brands/models are you looking at?
