Anyone had make a deal with watchingo on eBay? The store has over 15000 feedback.

It appears to be a good one.

They only have 99% positive feedback on those 15,000 transactions, best to proceed with caution.

Is a good number, right? Are you being sarcastic?

I was decided to send the payment from eBay to watchingo when I checked their fb page. I am thinking twice about purchase from them. I am going to buy my presage srdp41 from sport watch store. A bit more expensive. But, apparently a more trusted seller.

I've also been tempted by some of the prices on their eBay listings, and if you 'watch' specific items you often get sent even lower offers. Then I read their negative feedback and saw many complaints about receiving used and damaged watches and decided to avoid them entirely.

I sent an offer to watchingo for presage srdp41 which was accepted for 264 USD. A very good price. But, I am asking about photos of the watch. And they said that they cant send additional ir different photos. Very strange thing. I am thinking about cancel the purchase before sent the payment. Many sellers, has the same watch at 299, 345 USD more or less.

Not really sure why you are entertaining this at all. Clearly a lot of negative feedback on this seller...perhaps time to move on.

You are right. I thought that their 99 % eBay feedback was a good signal. But, maybe watchingo is not a trusted seller.

Just wanted to share that over on WUS there's a discussion about watchingo and several buyers have confirmed cases of receiving fake TAG Heuer watches from them via eBay. What's scary is that eBay continues to let them sell on their site despite evidence of such fraud.
