This is unreal, what are you doing with a 1500 watch? And all that bullion?

You're such a spoiled little shit, no wonder you think the world revolves around you. Your rich parents have probably catered to your every whim, and now they've cut you off you are selling all the shit they've given you. You're pathetic.

I guess that is the only way he could of gotten that watch.   

Anyways, can we see a picture of your timepiece?

You're right, you're right. I'm jumping to conclusions. After all, it's not like Dank is a delusional 18 year old kid who has never achieved anything in his life.

And with that fact in mind, I'd be extremely careful if you are considering buying this watch.

The new fakes that are coming out of Hong Kong are extremely good, and practically indistinguishable from the real thing. You have absolutely no chance of determining from a photograph alone. Even an expert would have trouble telling from a photograph.

The Air King is a very simplistic watch and particularly easy to fake, as Rolex models go. It also is one of the only Rolex watches to have a quartz movement. Traditionally, you could always spot a fake Rolex because they have quartz movements which make the second hand "tick" as it goes round. The real ones are mechanical and have a smooth "sweep". However with the Air King even the real ones "tick", making it extra hard to tell.

The last thing I'd ever do is buy a Rolex with Bitcoin. Especially not this model, from this guy.

Would you buy a Rolex from an 18 year old stoner kid in the street for cash?

You could be wearing it for a long time, then when you get it repaired or you try to sell it you are told that it's a fake.

Really the only place you should buy a Rolex is from an approved Rolex dealer, or at the very least a long established and reputable bricks and mortar 2nd hand watch store.

An escrow service and an authorized Rolex dealer should be a pretty safe way to do this.

I am a rolex nut myself so post some pics. If it is a marginal or bad fake I think I could tell (not saying you shouldnt do escrow anyway).

I've gotta see this....it's either fake or stolen.

The only way you could really do this is to send the watch to the recipient and let them take it to a Rolex dealer for authentication before the funds were released.  Of course then you have to trust that the recipient will be truthful about the authentication and either release the funds if the watch is genuine or return it if they don't wish to complete the transaction because it's fake.

When you post the pics, you might want to post the original receipt (showing the serial number) for the watch dank.  If it's not from an actual Rolex dealer, forget it.

Depends on how good the fake is...I used to do watch repair, and I've seen some pretty bad ones. I'm not familiar with this model in particular, but the fakes were generally obvious from the case, case back, date magnifier, crown, clasp, lack of kinetic winding, or second hand movement. There are a lot of things that give away a fake, even through pictures and videos.

That said, you can spot a cheap fake, but not a good one.

It's easy to spot a fake but it's impossible to say for sure that it's real.

Depends on how good the fake is...I used to do watch repair, and I've seen some pretty bad ones. I'm not familiar with this model in particular, but the fakes were generally obvious from the case, case back, date magnifier, crown, clasp, lack of kinetic winding, or second hand movement. There are a lot of things that give away a fake, even through pictures and videos.

That said, you can spot a cheap fake, but not a good one.

There's no date magnifier on the Air King, and no kinetic winding and a jerky second hand movement on the real thing, as I mentioned.

It's a particularly easy watch to fake because it lacks a lot of these details that allow amateurs to spot a fake with a bit of knowledge.

The case, crown and clasp are being forged absolutely perfectly these days even in the cheaper fakes. I've seen some $30 fakes in Hong Kong recently which had all these features perfect, even in models with a much more complex design. They all had kinetic winding too.

It's funny you mention the clasp. On a real Rolex the clasp and bracelet isn't actually all that good. Obviously it's relatively well made, the watches cost four and five figure sums, but it's by far the weakest part of the watch. The better fakes sometimes have a better quality clasp than the real thing!

As you said, it's easy to spot a cheap fake. However the good ones are very good indeed. I'm pretty knowledgeable about watches, and like I said, i've seen Rolexes in Hong Kong that I couldn't even spot with detailed examination in person, even with a real one on my wrist to compare it to.

Why not real?

That picture is pathetic as hell. Post a high res well lit picture of the inside of the watch.

Proof is in the long term offers forum.  Or why don't you ask Dank if he is offering 2.0% weekly (280% annually) on deposits?  Or is his word also not enough proof for you?

Yeah, this could be Dank's one last big score. All he has to do is buy a fake $50 Air King online and sell it for $2000. He could even successfully get around escrow because the dumbass who buys it goes to a "check if your rolex is fake" website and it ticks all the boxes. More than possible even with a mid-range fake for this particular model.

If someone buys it and takes it to a Rolex dealer and they tell it's fake, Dank can just be like "Oh it was my buddy, that bastard, etc. Sorry man. Escrow will return your coins." and he's only out the $50 he paid for the watch. Pretty good gamble, the chances of getting away with it are so high, and even if he gets caught all he has to lose is $50.

Of course there is a chance that the watch is real, but considering who it is, the particular model of watch, the prevalence of fake Rolexes, etc, I think the chance is tiny and certainly not worth taking a risk. If he starts talking about accepting a ridiculously low price then I'd be close to 100% sure that it's fake as hell.

This is one of my favourite ever forum posts. I would fucking love it if the forum was split between people who think Dank's watch is genuine and people who think it's fake.

I wonder how effective selling small but valuable goods taken from various B&E's in the mail for bitcoin would be.

Things like bullion coins and luxury watches, you know. .... 'cuz taking the big screen to the local fence is so '00, gotta get with the times man *bong hoot*

Really cheap macbooks come up on Silk Road reasonably often. Predictably they sell pretty quick too. To be honest I'm surprised it doesn't happen a lot more. I think that it would be more from kids carding shit to abandoned houses rather than break and entering though. Housebreaking is almost always done by drug addicts who need the money immediately, with a small proportion of professional thieves who will obviously have good fencing contacts.

If it's fake and cheap, I could take it apart, add some dirt antiquing solution, and sell the pieces on Etsy as vintage luxury steampunk jewelry findings (http://www.etsy.com/search/handmade/jewelry/necklace/metal?q=steampunk%20watch%20part&order=most_relevant&view_type=gallery&ship_to=ZZ). (Yes, really. Ugly Handmade Gift Season has already begun.)

However, while I don't care that it's fake-as-in-Rolex, you haven't yet convinced me that it isn't fake-as-in-Photoshop. I'm not asking you for a receipt or a serial number. I'm not asking you to try to open it yourself and risk damaging it. I'm not even asking for better lighting. Just flip the watch over and take a second picture.

On the other hand, if it IS real, then no, I'm not interested in paying that kind of price for a watch that doesn't even play Angry Birds.  ;)

Unless it's the free gift for opening a new account at Dank Bank. That reminds me, you never did answer my questions about the current requirements for new accounts.

So you're not willing to offer any evidence whatsoever that the watch is authentic.  You haven't even seen any proof yourself that it's authentic.  You want people to accept the word of your friend.  Hell, you're not even offering to take it to a local Rolex dealer and get them to give you something confirming its authenticity.  Does your friend not have a camera which can be used to take better photos of both the inside and the outside of the watch case to assist in selling this item?  Hell, you haven't even told us the serial number.

Get over yourself dank.  People are asking very reasonable questions given that you want over $1000 for the watch and you're throwing a tantrum like a petulant toddler.

The onus is on you and your friend to prove that the watch is authentic, not on potential buyers to prove that it's fake (which they obviously can't do pre-purchase because they can't take it along to a Rolex dealer until after they buy it).  Stop being such a tiresome wanker.

By the way.  From your awful photo it looks like that might be a vintage Rolex which means that service history is going to be important to potential buyers.  Your friend should be able to remember where and when he last had it serviced.  It also looks from the picture like it has some wear and tear so watch buffs are likely to take the cost of having it restored to excellent condition into account.

Just a quick note for anyone thinking of purchasing this watch -

Rolex watches ALWAYS come with a certificate of authenticity, and this certificate is guarded carefully by the owners. Lost certificates can be replaced. If the watch has no certificate then it is fake or stolen.

I was only looking to spend around $40 on the watch

Bargain hunter eh? I like your style. This is the kind of price where even if it was fake it would be a pretty good deal, assuming it does actually work.

I was going to say that no one should buy it, but I am revising that to say that no one should pay more than $40 for it.

My understanding is that Rolex also keeps records of every service ever performed by them on a watch and maintains a list of genuine watches reported to them as stolen (and that this list can be accessed by the public to verify that a watch hasn't been reported to Rolex as stolen).

dank's "I don't need to prove it's genuine" approach is just precious.  If he's not willing to verify the authenticity and genuine ownership of the Rolex, then you have to wonder about how the coins he's been selling were acquired, too.

Dank - This is not the line you should take when asking someone to fork over a thousand dollars.   It really lends more to something being off about this deal.   Talking a photo in the dark, taking only one photo, upside and berating interested buyers for asking for proof of authenticity.   Not a good sign.   Maybe you should re-think your approach.    If the Rolex is legit, it can be proven quite easy and any comment to the contrary shows some bad faith.   


P.S.  I think you mean, "Its that simple".

I used the word "potential" at this point.   After reading all the responses and the brazen attitude, it is a red flag.


Note:
  Due diligence has been taken and the store who sold it verified Dank's receipt.

Yeah, I explained twice though how I lost my phone and do not have access to a camera.  When I obtain one, I'll add more pictures.

Considering that practically everyone in the west has a camera (whether it's part of a phone, laptop, tablet or whatever) your inability to post pictures suggests you want to keep this deal as hush-hush as possible....or else you'd have simply borrowed someone's phone, camera, tablet for 2 minutes.

I think everyone who buys a Rolex is aware of fakes out there, no need to spam somebodies thread when you have no actual reason to believe it's fake.

There's no actual reason to believe it's genuine.

Therefor he lives right next door, right?  Not two hours away.

What kind of logic is that?  Everyone else has a camera, therefor you must have one too..?

I'm asking 142.0 BTC or best offer.  There's simply so much more to be done with those BTC than a watch could accomplish.

Here is a list of items needed:

- Better Front Picture (Turn on the light)
- Back Picture of the time piece
- Picture of the owner manual next to the watch
- Serial number  (Rolex can verify it)
- Receipt or reason to why there is none (A few friend of mine own there and they are real sticky about keeping all this info to "maintain resale value"

This is basic stuff for Rolexes.  Can't believe we have to ask 4 to 5 times.

My father owns a pawn shop and I worked for him for five years; before that I worked for a large pawn company with many stores in two states.  I have bought and sold hundreds of Rolex watches.  Without the detailed pics everyone is asking for we don't know anything.

How about some very, very elementary stuff.  Have you taken the band off?  Please DO NOT use metal tools to do this.  Use plastic or wood.  Once you have the band off, you will find the model number at the 12 o'clock position and the serial number at the 6 o'clock position. 

I am going to take a stab because this is a fun game, but I will say you have a 1981-1983 Air King.  Once you have the model and serial numbers we can easily determine if I am right or wrong. 

And dude- seriously- take some !@#$!@#$ pictures of the model and serial numbers.  If you don't do this you are a thief or a liar or both.  If you actually do this (doubts are building as I type) it will tell everyone all that they need to know except as previously mentioned the service history.

Here is another stab.  It gains time.  I can tell you why later, and I could be right or wrong.  But it does gain 2-3 minutes every other day, doesn't it?  Wow, this guy is good Billy.  Let's run!

You are asking for something too obvious.   This is a gentlemen that is selling precious metals but has not access to a camera because he got too high and broke his phone and his childhood friend (who lives next door) doesn't have one but does have a genuine Rolex.

The stupidist thing about your attitude, dank, is that there's a high demand for genuine, vintage Rolexes.  If you can prove that the watch you're selling is authentic, you can almost certainly sell it for more than the 142 BTC you're asking.  The exact model number determines how much it's worth.

Yet again, though, you're not prepared to put in any effort.  If you don't get off your ass and put in the effort, people are only going to be willing to pay the price a Rolex knock-off would command.  I guess it's all profit anyway if you're selling a gift so why bother, hey?

Post by: repentance on November 27, 2012, 09:18:05 PM
From the face alone it's hard to guess which model it might be.  The serial number will tell us that.  Some Rolexes from the 1960s have a similar face and some of the limited additions from that era are worth a lot of money even if the original band has been replaced, they need refinishing, etc.  If it's genuine, there are a ton of places where collectors will snap it up at the price you're asking - but no matter where you try to sell it, buyers are going to want proof of its authenticity.  Your friend could be sitting on a fucking motherlode and not even know it (if he owned the coins you've been selling and both the coins and the watch were gifts from grandparents then there's a possibility this watch is worth a hell of a lot more than a couple of thousand dollars).  As others have pointed out, Rolex can supply an authentication certificate if the original has been lost - even if the watch was bought 50 years ago.

Right now, it just looks like you're relying on your past history to convince people that you wouldn't sell them a fake - the classic "long con" - because your reasons for refusing to authenticate the watch are ridiculous.

Agreed. It wouldn't even have to be vintage or rare in any way to command a higher price than this. I've never seen any good condition Air King selling for less than $2k. Perhaps a badly damaged model may go for less, but many models will sell for much more, potentially three times that. The Air King is one of the most affordable Rolex models but it's far from cheap.

142 BTC is suspiciously good value.

I think its sort of asinine to spam the thread with, ITS NOT REAL MORE PICS! First off, I've never had any deals other than good with Dank, and I don't really see him refusing escrow, so the matter of scamming is out. This does not speak on the genuinity of the watch itself, but I think it at least warrants him a slight bit of reasonable doubt, enough to at least be allowed to find more evidence. Just wait until he gets the pictures that others have said are needed to determine authenticity.

Did you actually read his responses?  Reasonable doubt is long gone I am afraid.   No one has asked for escrow because we don't want to waste someones time until we can be sure it is worth putting an earnest payment up.  Would you even ask for escrow off of one dark upside down picture and the excuse, I got high and broke my only access to a camera but my childhood friend next door doesnt have one either.  I mean seriously????

But you bring up a great question.


Dank - Will you do escrow once you provide a serial number we can verify?  I am a potential buyer if it genuine.  Like people said, there is a market for vintage Rolexes.

However this thread has basically been trolled by the same people posting over and over who have no actual interest in participating in the transaction.

This might be legit, it might not be. But accusation without evidence is about as tacky as scamming. A word of caution may be warranted but pages and pages of accusations are out of line.

I was sold fake watches that are worth almost nothing here.  Suspicion is warranted.  Rolexes are often counterfeited and some of the copies are very accurate. Even with this watch and the information so far, the only real way to know if it is real is to have a professional look at it.  They usually need to open it and look at the movement.  Personally I do think that this watch is real but I am not an expert. 

The going rate on ebay for this watch in good condition fully working is about $1500 though if you go for auctions and get lucky $1200 is possible.

Given the image of the receipt and the fact that is has been corroborated, I think it now comes down to if you think the store is capable of authenticated the watch and if you trust that it will actually be sent.

It's just that people have reason to be suspicious around here because we've had a lot of scammers.  When people are trying to sell a high value item for BTC and it's known that item is frequently counterfeited, the onus is going to be on them to prove the authenticity of the item.  Someone new to the boards trying to sell a similar item would have been given a much harder time than dank was, but even long-standing members don't get the benefit of the doubt just because they've been around for a while and nor should they.

You would think so.  But then you'd think they would have gone to the trouble of getting a certificate of authenticity, too.  I have little doubt that dank will send the watch.  He just mightn't get the price he wants without the certificate if the person who buys it is looking to sell it down the track.

Dank seems to have proved that he is at least in possession of a genuine Rolex.

However this may not be the watch that you receive.

I could be "selling" my SeaDweller DeepSea, provide photos and even more documentary evidence than Dank can.

And then what comes in the mail?

A $600 Swiss replica. Identical in every way to the real thing, and you have all the documentation too. I think most people would release the escrow at that point, and even if they took it to their local jewelers, the top replicas are good enough to fool them too.

Well, those of us that know Dank believe it is warranted.  As was posted earlier, just because the watch is real doesn't mean you'll get that exact watch.  Dank's brain is permanently damaged from adolescent drug use - he thinks differently than we do.  He would have no issue sending a fake watch and then posting something to the tune of "in my mind the watches are the same" and "don't rely on material possessions, they will kill you" crap.

I don't think Dank would screw anyone over a watch.

He's selling it at a reasonable price. Use escrow and make sure you get what you pay for.



I would never wear that ugly thing. :)

Dank seems to have proved that he is at least in possession of a genuine Rolex.

However this may not be the watch that you receive.

I could be "selling" my SeaDweller DeepSea, provide photos and even more documentary evidence than Dank can.

And then what comes in the mail?

http://www.yourswatches.com/rolex-swiss-deepsea-srl154.html/

A $600 Swiss replica. Identical in every way to the real thing, and you have all the documentation too. I think most people would release the escrow at that point, and even if they took it to their local jewelers, the top replicas are good enough to fool them too.

Don't trust Dank

IMHO this is off the deep end. Has Dank scammed you before?

Its pretty simple- Caveat emptor. Someone will take the chance on it, and Dank has provided exactly what's been requested... Even if it did take a few days.



Do you honestly think buying a Rolex watch with Bitcoins from anyone other than someone who has a long history of selling genuine Rolex watches is a good idea?

If so, you are going to end up scammed eventually because of your lackadaisical attitude, especially if you start putting insane amounts of trust into people who exhibit the same detachment with reality as Dank. This is Bitcoin, you can never be too cautious. If you exercise anything other than the maximum amount of caution then you should expect to get scammed at some point.

If the watch is legit, Dank could sell it somewhere else, and then use the cash to buy Bitcoins. He doesn't need someone here to take the risk in order for him to offload the watch.

I wouldn't personally buy a Rolex watch from someone with a less than stellar reputation. I guess my point was that the potential for a bait and switch is so blatantly obvious in this (and many many other) transactions that it seems silly to take time to specifically point it out. Literally all the seller can do is provide the requested information, but there's no way to provide 100% assurances against a bait and switch.

I don't have a lackadaisical attitude and gave no reason to indicate I was putting insane amounts of trust into anyone.

My point wasn't that saying "don't trust dank" is off the deep end. I was suggesting that a post warning of the potential for it to still be a scam after the physical store has been called and authenticity verified might be off the deep end.

Well, those of us that know Dank believe it is warranted.  As was posted earlier, just because the watch is real doesn't mean you'll get that exact watch.  Dank's brain is permanently damaged from adolescent drug use - he thinks differently than we do.  He would have no issue sending a fake watch and then posting something to the tune of "in my mind the watches are the same" and "don't rely on material possessions, they will kill you" crap.

He's been trying for a big scam for almost 6 months now (since July), and this could be it.  It's called the "long con".

Oh, you know dank? Where did you meet him? What do you know about him other than what he posts here?

I would think that if you know about this permanent brain damage that he has and where it came from, then you must know him in person.

I'm not lazy. I know the persona, but I don't assume it represents how the person actually acts and thinks, and I don't assume that his brain is "damaged". But would I trust him with assets or do business with him? No.

I asked if you knew dank because of the way you were educating me on him.... I've been reading bitcointalk forums since May, I know all about dank and I know all about the many scams that have suckered much of this community. You stated that he had permanent brain damage from adolescent drug use, so I was just trying to get at the basis for your claim.

I just think generalizations like that are dumb, and suggesting some one doesn't "think the way we do" because of marijuana use sounds so arrogant that I can't help but respond to it. I'll go ahead and out myself, I started smoking marijuana at 18 and have continued because I enjoy it. I graduated college at 22, turn 25 next month, and will complete graduate school in May. Don't have permanent brain damage as far as I know, still pretty damn good at taking tests and all that good stuff. Can even hold down a job! Pretty impressive for a brain damaged stoner, wouldn't you say?

Just blame the individual and stop blaming the substance.

Alright, alright calm down. You seem very stressed today. Cold turkey?

I'm just puzzled why you would go to the extreme trouble to sell it on here when you could be just in and out of a high street dealers in 30 minutes with cash in your pocket.

Just think of the major hassle selling on here.

* Explain to people what it's all about.
* Prove to people it genuine.
* Hassle of taking more photos and obtaining proof.
* Then explain again how it's not fake.
* Negotiate price with buyer.
* Setup Escrow.
* Wrap watch up in parcel.
* Walk/drive to post office to post it off. Queue for ages.
* Wait few days/weeks to arrive.
* Risk of package getting lost.
* Risk buyer got watch but claimed never arrived.
* Risk watch gets damaged in post.
* Finally get money.

Or

* Pop in high street dealers with watch and proof. Out in 30 minutes with cash in pocket. Job done.

People in houses in general shouldn't throw stones. You are liable to break a lamp, T.V, or just about anything else.

Anyway, if you are so hellbent on proving that Dank is a scammer, rather than crap in a thread where he has provided the info requested, proving its a real watch, why not gather your evidence that is unrelated to this thread, and start a scam accusation thread?

At this point, assuming you use escrow, I can't see the watch being a scam. I don't know much about the concert "ponzi" or whatever, but why not discuss it in a place that isn't here? You aren't warning potential buyers about buying a possibly fake watch, you are talking about other threads / actions.

Long story short, The guy has good credit, a long trade history, confirmed genuine watch, a "concert" planned, and indulges in weed. If you want to start an investigation do it.

If its a ponzi, then why not start a scam investigation? Like I said, I don't know much about the concert plans other than that he borrowed money to do so. Either way, it doesn't belong here. You can't persecute a person for a crime they haven't committed yet. If you disagree, assemble the facts and move on it, rather than just following dank around and derailing his threads.

People asking for evidence that the watch is legitimate, relevant and on topic. What you are doing is speculating to how he is acting with his borrowed money.

How do you know? Are you dank?

Honestly, I have no vested interest in Dank or his bank, but this sort of mindset irritates me. By your mentality, everyone is a scammer, but just waiting for the right moment.

You know, you could be right I suppose, but there is no evidence at the moment. If there was, you would have gathered the evidence, and started an actual claim against him.

I know because he is running a ponzi.  Why run a ponzi except to steal as many coins as possible?

It's paranoia, fear.  I just made Dank Bank interest free, for new deposits.  The pyramid of the great USDollar will ultimately collapse in x amount of time, regardless.

So just find love in your life and you'll be happy.

Dank's parents gave him a couple thousand dollars a few weeks ago.  Apparently he blew through that already.  I'm guessing this watch probably belongs to them as well.  I think Dank is trying to keep his head above water because he's out of money and his parents won't let him move back in.  Anyone would be wise to stay far away from this watch.

Actually, his parents gave him money for three months rent - Oct, Nov, Dec because he told his parents he would be self sufficient by then.  Come Jan 1 he is out of cash which is why he is looking for money to head to Cali where he can live on the beach and smoke pot all day.  Lucky for us, we aren't that far away from his disappearing.  Unlucky for us, we still have a few weeks to go of his insane postings. :(

Nobody is forcing you to read his posts, much less respond to them.

This is the marketplace section of the forum not the rumours or gossip section, it is also no the scam accusation area.

About 80% of the posts on this thread amount to nothing more than trolling. First under the excuse that the watch is not real and now that that has been shown wrong the trolling degrading to personal attacks and mudslinging.

If you don't want the watch move on. If you want to have a "lets talk about dank" discussion just go start your own thread.

I quite agree with what you said, but I have zero sympathy for Dank.
Seems he likes to troll, with his never ending threads about rubbish. But when trolled back, goes off in a sulk. Scratching his head why no-one takes him seriously.

If this was anyone else selling this watch, the deal would of been done by now. So what does that tell us? Does the problem stem from the watch? The forum members? The potential buyers? The trolls?

No. The problem lies with Dank.

buy it or don't, or fuck off..  I'm annoyed by this thread. 9 pages already...

miners of similar value are bought and sold on here everyday.  Dank has not directly scammed anyone.  This watch is not worth a million it's worth a couple thousand.  Same as several miners are worth.  Am I missing something? 

the only people that should be posting about concerns are those looking to purchase it.  I know I don't need a guardian angel protecting me from purchases on here.. I'm a big boy and you guys should act the same.

Actually, quite he contrary. On the road to my 4 year diploma I have received many formal offers unsolicited, and while I'm finishing my fourth year I will be responding to those offers by booking various interviews where both my potential employers and will compare goals and orientations. I'll then decide which on fits me best.

You see, when you take the time and put in the effort to actually develop a desirable skillset, people chase you much more than you chase them. Shocking, I know, but I guess studying hard to get in a field where there are 3-4 openings per new candidate was a better life choice than... whatever you're doing.

I fiddle with guitars occasionally, sounding pretty much like you do. It's not a valuable skillset. By definition, it's valuable only if it's marketable, otherwise it's a hobby.

My guess was that the blitz to sell off stuff was to cover your deposit (and to get more SR swag). Your offer of 78.03, after interest, isn't that much of a leap since dank already knocked 30% off in desperation.

Not really, the price of BTC has gone up since the original post.

First dank said the watch belonged to his friend, who wanted BTC.  Now he says he wants to sell the watch to pay for a trip to California, but he is still asking for BTC.  As usual his story keeps changing.

I will send full payment including expedited shipping and insurance to escrow holder
seller will ship watch with all boxes and documentation to me via fedex overnight (insured).
As soon as I receive the watch, I will take it to a jeweler and verify its authenticity.
If all is well, funds are released and we both go home happy.
If there is a problem with the watch, escrow holder will return the shipping cost to me and I will return the watch to the seller.

I thought he wanted to sell watch so he could get to California? Not to pay rent. Also he refused to give us a reason why he wouldn't sell to dealer, and insisted he needed BTC. You can't pay rent in BTC.

I'm surprised he wasn't going to wear the Rolex and stroll around his Hookah Lounge when he wasn't at his mansion, using the watch to blind people who get too close the totally kickin-rad bike he's going to buy, as he resurrects Jimi and brokers 20 musicians for his music festival.

I don't understand why Dank isn't selling this. The Air King is a lower end Rolex. Once Dank is a trillionaire business rockstar overlord flying yogi, Rolex will be throwing jewel encrusted million dollar special editions at him in the vain hope that His Transcendence will deign to wear one of them in public.

He never intended to sell.

This thread isn't about selling a watch, this thread is all about getting dank attention. After interest in the million man concert storyline waned to an all time low, dank needed a new shtick to satisfy his desperate craving for attention.

This was it. This is why it took days of discussion to deliver suitable photographs, days of discussion to clear up accusations of the thing being stolen, days of discussion to establish why the watch wasn't sold in a suitable venue instead.

It's not my watch to sell, I would have sold it. Wasn't my choice, missed your chance.

Oh, wow. Guess that dealer I spoke to did in fact contact the real owner, who apparently was pissed at his husk of a son selling his shit.

I guess that now that your family saw how desperate you were they covered more rent?

That must've been a fun discussion. "But daaaaad, you don't need to pay for my rent next month, in a week my million man concert will usher in an age of love and enlightenment that will render the very meaning of money obsolete. Well, ok then, I'll take your check, but can you add a bit more? The world is too negative for me to stop eating..."

OK, somethings definitely off here.

Could we possibly do 50% escrow, 50% upfront, or something?  Having $1000 in the next day or so for it may be more useful than waiting 3-5 days for funds to be released, I'm on a tight schedule.
Well, I need my rent paid in the next day or so, so if my friend isn't able to sell his car, I'd have to sell the watch for cash to pay rent.  Where are you located and how long would it take you to take it to a jeweler?

You have read through the thread, correct?  I provided a copy of the receipt and other users confirmed validity with the company.
I will let you know tomorrow, I need to make sure it'll be okay to wait two days, otherwise they'll start the eviction process.

Are you cool with using senbonzakura as an escrow?
He operates IBB, no problem though.  Is SaltySpitoon cool?

yeah, i emailed him to take a look at it. if another mod responds first, thats fine too.
Hey, sorry, my friend no longer wants to sell the watch for BTC as I don't need it for my rent. He's giving it to his mom, I hope you understand.

Peace

Goddamn what a worthless kid.  You know his parents are scrambling now to cover his rent because there is no way in hell they want their idiot kid back in the same house as them.  Dank makes his living on his perpetual stupidity.

Or his friend sold his car and didn't need to sell the watch anymore?

Alright everybody, I have all the evidence you need to realize Dank and his DankBank, "Dankstock" and other ventures are 100% not legit.
