    Guy asking about a watch auction and average pictures. You know the type. Not clean, at angles sort of designed so that you really can't see what you need to see to be 100%.

    This one had appraisal papers. 7 pages and a appraisal from a second rate watch store

    Could be real, but best to check at a retailer.

    Guy starts to argue with me and pointing out the things that look odd trying to justify why it's real

    Now the watch is not my expertise on this model, but when I see average images. That sets off the alarms depending on the type of watch and value

    Seems I replied shortly after the auction and his arguing is his way of assuring himself that it's genuine.

    You live in the city where there's a retailer. Take it over and check, but I guess it's easier to argue than do this

    Lee,

    It was a panerai and back image on it's side so you can't make out anything on the back to compare to a genuine model. Face has some reflections.

    Told the buyer to pay through PP with CC and not a gift payment.

    On another forum. There was a similar post with 91 responses. Bought a bad watch and arguing about whether to return or keep.

    Just take the offered advice and stop arguing.
