To initiate a sales post in the Sales Corner as a private seller you must first be registered longer than 90 days and have a minimum of 100 posts in our discussion forums.
Sales Corner Rules & Guidelines
Only Private sellers and Sponsors are allowed to post in the Sales corner for private sellers and sponsors. Based on our evaluation, some who post primarily or exclusively Sales may at our discretion be directed to limit their Sales posts to that area, even though they may not be Professional Dealers. Dealers who are not Sponsors must post in our Sales Corner for dealers & manufacturers.
Each sales post must have a good description of the watch (very important because we don’t allow discussions in this forum!). Here’s an example:
Movement: Swiss ETA 2836-2 automatic
Crystal: sapphire crystal, with anti-reflection treatment
Case: titanium and steel case
Dimensions: 39.5 mm diameter, 12.5 height
Caseback: screw-in, steel
Dial: black dial
Strap/bracelet: rubber strap with deployant
WR: 100 meters
Private sellers are allowed to post up to 10 different items per 24 hours.
Sponsors are allowed to post up to 5 different items per 24 hours, unless they have a special permit from the site owner.
- Each sales post must have an asking price
- You must leave all ad content including the asking price after you sold your items for future references.
- The item for sale must be in possession of the seller.
- You must indicate to where you will sell (Geographical restrictions like: CONUS (Continent of the US), Worldwide, Europe, Asia).
- Do NOT list any fake or counterfeit replica watches. Homage or sterile watches without false branding or a registered trademark (such as Marina Militare) are ok until further notice. Ignoring this rule leads to the banning of your account.
- Describing a sales transaction as a “gift” to avoid legitimate fees (i.e. PayPal), is illegal and violates Watchuseek rules and is subject to thread deletion or account suspension.
- Bumps (Bring Up My Post) and relists are limited to once per 12 hours.
- No links to auctions here. Please visit our eBay Auctions instead.
- No wanted to buy (WTB) here. Please visit our Wanted To Buy Forum instead.
- No wanted to trade (WTT) here. Please visit our Wanted To Trade Forum instead.
- Speed posting with the aim of reaching 100 posts with little additional contribution to the forum will result in access to the Sales Corner being removed. Superflous posts will be regarded as spam and deleted. What constitutes speed posting is at the discretion of the Watchuseek Admins and Moderating team.
- Replies are disabled for this forum and here is why. You should contact the seller by PM or email only.
- Add (link or upload) an actual image of the watch.
- Consider posting your sale/trade experience with Watchuseek members in our Watch Deals, Feedback & Reputation section. References are valuable for all involved and help make Watchuseek a better site.
- PayPal rules currently prohibit sellers from passing on fees to buyers. Watchuseek does not enforce these rules but notes reports may be made directly to PayPal. More: PayPal User Agreement.

- Moderators reserve the right to suspend or ban your account if you fail to follow the rules.
- Watchuseek is not responsible for any misrepresentations or problems in completing a deal represented here. Violation of these rules may result in deletion of your post(s) or disciplinary measures. Please also read our general Forum Rules & Guidelines.

With regard to content posted on any of the forums, Watchuseek merely acts as a conduit, providing you access to the forums. Most of the forums are actively moderated, but messages are not screened before they are posted. Therefore, if you believe that content posted on any of the forums infringes any of your rights, please use the “report post” button (triangle at the left lower part of the post) or send a message to the moderator in charge, with detailed information about the alleged infringement. We will then look into your request as soon as possible. In the unlikely event of a dispute between you and Watchuseek, we prefer an amicable settlement. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute and we expect the same from you.
Watchuseek is owned, and operated by VerticalScope inc, not the forum participants, nor the Moderators or Administrators. The volunteer Moderators are here to administer forum policy, and to provide help, within reason.
Violation of these rules may result in disciplinary measures, which may ultimately include being banned from Watchuseek.
We wish you a pleasant stay and look forward to your contributions.
