Comes with nice green padded case, owners manual, and the watch of course!

Give a reasonable offer.  Will post pictures tomorrow.

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.

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).

has anyone stop to think, that maybe dank is selling some stuff in order to buy a motorcycle, guitar, lots of lighter fluid, and lumber + labor? If you don't buy his stuff, then you are depriving the world of a motorcycle stunt guitarist  Grin

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.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

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.

Serial number dank.  By the way, you haven't addressed the question of whether the receipt for the original purchase of the watch is available.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

The watch is upside down (6 at the top, 12 at the bottom) in that photo.

If you can flip it and retake the photo, I'll believe you have physical access to that watch and aren't just using a stock photo.

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.

Because unless it's an iPhone, no one loves their phone enough to succeed.
