Has anyone put together a guide to buying luxury watches from other individuals online (like in Watchuseek's own Private Buyers/Sellers subforum)? I imagine most of the advice applies to any watch brand, but Rolex being so frequently counterfeited, I'm posting here in case there's anything specific.

But really, I've only bought one watch, and it was from a dealer, so any advice anyone can provide would be appreciated.

Ebay provides a guideline: HOW TO SPOT A FAKE ROLEX | eBay
There are several videos on youtube, as well. Look it up.
There are websites officially selling replicas. Have a close look at them and compare it to genuine ones. Look for the details, such as the connection between the bracelet and the lugs, the indices, the date window, the crown & guards, the serial number between the lugs, does the serial number on the watch match the number on the papers and so on. Spend some time doing so, then you will be able to spot a fake quite well.
