I was selling my Rolex in the firearms section. I received a pm from a gentleman here's the pm.
I would like to make a deal for your Rolex. Would you be interested in a real Israili Arms Uzi pistol? New in the correct blue box, less than 15 rounds fired. It has the barrells for a 45 and 9 mm. Also, have a poster of the Uzi with the late Uzi Gaul signiture and letter of authenticity. They are insured for $3,321, trade value at approx $2,500. I can cash out the rest or ....?
So I invited the Gentleman to my Fathers Home so that he could look at the watch. Before hand I told the Gentleman that I would be more then happy to meet him at any local Jeweler of his choice. But he never exercised that option. Upon arriving to the house he was suppose to meet us at 11am and after calling him he told me 1pm and then showed up at 2pm. As if I had nothing better to do then to wait on him all day.
After showing up he looks at the watch and Is looking at it and says wheres the green & white paper that comes with it. We don't ever recall it having a green & white paper but Im sure it was just misplaced. However I thought the watch was a 2005 model which after looking at a piece of paper we found, the watch was purchased 7-14-2004. He proceeded to tell me he thought it was a 2005 model.And said he wanted to make a call outside to his buddy that knows about watches.
As I look outside through the blinds he drives off and doesnt even have the odasity to say that he did not want to proceed with the deal. If he had any questions or was skeptical of this watch being 100% genuine Rolex he should have asked questions.
After he ran off I called Rolex Dallas to ask them what he was talking about
and they said that paper was a Warranty card and if the watch needed to be identified as 100% Rolex to bring it in.
Needless to say after all this I did not get my asking price for it but I SOLD it today. We took it to Dallas Diamonds in Mesquite and I told them what happen and they laughed and said that guy has no idea what hes looking at. Also theres no difference in the Rolex 16613 models until 2008 model there all the same we compared them to each other. And looked at Rolex's comparison booklets.
Well Dallas Diamond wrote a Check for 4,000 in about 2 minutes of looking at it LOL.
