Hi all,


I just got a SEIKO premier SNAD25P1 from ebay. The seller's name is CityWatches UK, it is registered as business seller (not a power seller though). Their response was fast and they sent me the watch in a great condition (including the box and the instructions). The price was nice too, 279 GBP (UK pounds). They don't provide any international Seiko warranty and in case of a malfunction within a 2 year period I should send the watch to them directly in order to fix it. I suppose that those guys are in the "grey market".
The website of the company is
http://www.citywatches.co.uk/
and
http://stores.ebay.co.uk/UK-CityWatches


The item's link is
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220611430534&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_2829wt_912
(I am attaching the link as the transaction has ended)


Can you please help me by telling me whether this watch is an authentic one? Do you think that it comes from the grey market? (which is Ok with me)
The rating of the company is quite high. Did anyone else buy from this company?


Thank you for your time


PS: In case it is necessary I can take photos from the watch and upload them.

Looks legitimate, but unfortunately, when you buy from the internet and not an authorized dealer, it is very difficult to determine whether the piece is truly legit or not. Buy at your own risk.

Thanx minidriver,


The price in the local authorized dealer in my city is 540€ (~ 445GBP). So I tried to save some money. Would you be able to recognize if it is original by uploading some photos?

Perhaps getting a hold of the serial number would also be helpful.

I'm sure it is fine but since the ebay listing used a stock photo pictures of your watch would be necessary.
