Hi folks.

I found an interesting deal on a 2020 Seamaster 300M blue dial and ceramic blue bezel, with the 8800 in it and saphire sandwich that I always loved, for around 3000€.
I think it's a steal for the watch that it is, but I'm a little worried with it's autenticity, even if the seller has everything like box, papers, warranty, etc.
He even sent me pictures of the case back, but is hard to see the mechanism because of the bracelet, and even send me pictures of the adjustment of the clasp.

Is it too good to be true?

You should post pics, but if he has "papers", note that the fakers at this time only include the International Warranty card. If he has that but no Pictogram and Master Chronometer card, it's almost guaranteed fake.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If I had a 2020 SMP with all box and papers I would want more than that for it. If he cant send you proper photos thats another sign something isnt right. Then you need to make sure that you receive the watch in the photos. Best of luck with it. A few photos would be handy as well.

Here are the pics that the seller sent me.
He has it on chrono 24 but I don't find the link to the watch.


The right price would be 3250€.
He had it for a while on the 3650€ and accepted my offer of 3250€ plus shipping.
And I'm talking to him about it.
What do you think?

This watch looks legit without looking at the movement. Since it's through Chrono24 you can take it to get authenticated upon receipt before releasing the funds. Theres not too much to worry about. Check his reviews too

He is a private seller.
He has no reviews, unfortunately.
But if I can do that, that's awesome.

The watch in the pictures is genuine, assuming that he actually has the watch. Ask for pictures of it set to a specific time and date from the seller to prove possession.

Ok, but just make sure to pay via their Escrow service. As soon as you get it, it would be a good idea to take pics and post on here to verify, if you don't have an AD nearby. And also do what @6R15 suggested to make sure he's in possession of the watch.

I don’t think the price is too low. If you look on WatchRecon these watches are being sold for around $3,700-$4,000, which is exactly what €3,000-€3,250 comes out to be.

I will do that. Thanks for the advice.
Because the nearest AD is 3 hours distance

He sent me this specific day and date and sent me a video winding it and unscrewing the crown.
The rotor is silent as hell, he put the phone near the watch so he could pick up the sound of the rotor and is exactly like other Omega's that my father have, like his 38mm AT.

I would recommend checking out WatchRecon and buying domestic from someone with feedback.
My problem with watch recon is that I can't find all that watches here in France where I live...

You have to do that to list it on Chrono24

Yes, but I've literally seen scammers post stolen watch pictures from online sources, then go to a dealer and pretend to have interest only to take pictures of the watch at a specific time in-store.

Most private sellers usually don't have one of these in their homes:
