I Do hope your not directing those Comments at me????? Especially the Last comment “Don't buy Fakes”?Say you've patiently saved and shopped and bought a Speedtimer on an original bracelet. A year later you decide to sell it on eBay. At the same time another seller lists the same model watch in the same condition but with an aftermarket bracelet, which looks like yours, but does not say "Seiko".
No fakes exist at this point, so potential sellers see your watch as a nicer piece by virtue of it's bracelet and pay $1,200 for your watch. The one with the aftermarket bracelet sells for $1,000
Scenario 2: this time there are fakes on the market. You list yours with it's original bracelet, and the other guy lists his with a fake bracelet. In this scenario he admits in the listing that the bracelet is not authentic. Now buyers, who are aware of the presence of fakes, aren't 100% sure yours is original. Your watch sells for $1,100 and the other guy's sells for $1,000. You've been cheated of $100.
Scenario 3. Same as above but this time the other guy claims his fake bracelet is real. Buyers don't know your watch is better than his and know that either has a high probability of being fake. You're now in direct competition with him because you're selling the exact same product from the point of view of the buyer, and competing head-to-head on price. Both watches sell for $1,000 and you've been cheated out of $200.
Don't buy fakes. You're screwing your fellow collectors.
