Since many member of OF frequent WatchRecon, I wanted to go ahead and write about a frequent poster on Chronocentric as a warning. I'm actually saddened to post this because Amer Sibai (IG: @rare_watches) is a very active member on ChronoTrader throughout the years and has sold numerous watches with great feedback. It was with this background that I bought what I thought was a set of authentic Camaro hands with confidence that I was buying the seller. However, I was informed recently the hands were too long and would not clear the chrono-sweep. I looked through Camaro variants on the OntheDash site and saw that no Camaro variants had hands that extend past the tachymeter. In short, Amer sold me either the wrong hands or fake hands. Pictures are below: Now, in full disclosure I purchased the hands in Nov 2017 and didn't find out about the hands until late Feb 2018. I understood that it had been a long time since I had purchased the hands since it took my watch-maker a couple months to source the chronosweep and service the watch. I had also requested a refund on a separate matter concerning the subdial hands, which were sold as non-UV reactive but this was not true. As a result, one of the chronosweeps we had sourced became useless, but I was luckily able to find another one in short time. However, I felt confident that Amer would rectify this situation given these were obviously not the correct hands that was the basis of the initial sale. Instead, I was told that it had been too long since our transaction. That I had passed up the opportunity to refund it the first time. Then I was told he couldn't give me a refund, but that he could offer me "some Heuer hands so I could sell them and I could save my money". This seemed strange to say the least given I was already having issues with the hands he sold me. In short, I wanted to share my experience as a lesson that even with established sellers, it pays to do your due diligence and not be complacent. I'm reminded of the recent scam involving a hacked OF account and realize I got pretty lucky here. I still have a great project watch and it was "only" a couple hundred dollars. Still, it's a small group and it's kind of a bummer to feel that you can't trust even some of the most established members in the vintage community. Now if anyone has a REAL pair of Heuer Camaro hands for an Exotic 73343 NT, let me know.
