Agree with you @cb1111 that we all smell a rat here and this reeks of cow manure to high heaven.The investigator in me keeps coming out and this is starting to smell as if I'm standing in the middle of a cow pasture in the summer.
How does the part bolded above fit in with what the OP said in his first post where he said:
"Last summer, the guy I sold the watch to contacted me to let me know that I had sold him a fake watch. I was shocked, obviously, and pressed him for more details. He had taken the watch in for a service, and the service department notified him that it was an inauthentic item with an Asian movement."
What is it that Judge Judy always says "If you are telling the truth then you don't need a good memory"?
I'm not sure what the scam is, but there is one.
Of course, the watch was originally sold as authentic and along the way, someone opened it, four times, mind you and swapped out the original movement.
Sometimes the simplest explanation is the answer.
Whatever statute of limitations being referenced is useless in this case because of the passage of time and the OP could not prove conclusively that he was sold a fake by the pawn shop. This is unlike the OP's buyer who proved it was a fake and got his money back.
