Did you also notice that it says "NN"..... but that it was signed December 2011... to my knowledge the sale didnt start until January.... even given the over eagerness of us forum members... :oops:

I received my NN in very early January, but it was dated December. I actually ordered it on 29th Dec. :)

My opinion...

He is selling a watch which he is representing as 'new' ie its like new,he bought it and only wore it once,stating the price it sells for.....yet he bought it in the NN sale and is selling it at a profit.
I don't have any issue selling a watch for whatever they can get for it...it's theirs and it's up to them what they do with it. Course,if it makes you look like an arse then that's another matter.
If you can read this you are too close to your computer screen....

You have a way with words Julywest. :) You missed the irony in the previous post. I tried to gently point it out to you. ;)[/quote]

Please try again (and do not be gentle) as I have yet to see any irony in it.. :D
Also the title of the thread says "wicked". what does that word mean in context used?

I suspect this watch was a January Sale purchase. Just an observation.

Hi julywest, it's wicked as in "wicked!" when you get invited to a after party of the Victoria Secret show or "wicked....." as in smartaxx. However a reader interprets it. If you agree with his sales post, or if you don't agree, is a matter of how you perceive Internet sales protocol should be, and there's frankly no strict rules to that. I am in the house of full and frank disclosure, pretty old fashion, and maybe rather stupid but that's what I am.

Thx for clarifying definition of "wicked" never know how words are used anymore and we are from so many different countries. :D

Now the OP you made : the seller is doing some poetic license but who knows the buyer (not 1 yet as I see the price dropping) may be satisfied in the end.
