Can someone take a look at this watch?

Postby ScYph » Thu Jul 13, 2017 4:07 am

Hi I'm new here and new to buying anything from Timex and was wondering if this watch is legit as I can't find it anywhere else, it's a beautiful piece in my opinion and a very nice size for my wrist size.

I knows there's alot of better options available and I'm open to any other recommendations but I just wanted to validate the legitimacy of this piece as there is little info listed.

Welcome to the forum, don't be a stranger, you can discuss all makes of watch as well as TIMEX ;)

I would say the watch looks to be fine as genuine, the Moonphase comes in a few designs and this one looks OK in the Dress watch version. I'm not sure if I would pay as much for that example, it's NOT absolutely mint from the photo, but maybe someone stateside of the big pond can advise better on "local" prices for these. :P

And shipping extra? :shock:

Yes, the watch is legit. can't say the same for the asking price which is just way to much. Look elsewhere if this is the style of watch you are interested in.

Thank you for the replies and help, im going to keep looking for watches similar to this if I can't barter with the seller to knock down the price, if I can get it for $70 or lower I will probably buying depending on shipping if not I will probably pick up an orient sun and moon off long island watch.

$70 !! ouff ...I can get one for $30 new .. A Timex with moonface is nice ( the watch in your link ) but not necessary .
If you always ask your neighbor's time, it's time to buy a Timex watch .
