I have been chasing a vintage speedy ref 2998-3. The seller works with a friend of mine. The guy sent me pictures of the watch we agreed on a price. However we can not agree on a meeting place. I told the guy we can meet in a public place even a fast food joint of my choice. The goof has been jerking me around for a little over a week. Always picking an obscure place to meet. Today his meeting place of choice was a drug store. I texted the guy back and mentioned a sandwich shop was just across the street from his selection for a meet. He kept on insisting the drug store. I told the guy the fast food place a Tim Horton's inside or no meet. Not sure what the guys (goofs) deal is with the meet. I am not going to do a deal in a parking lot or inside a drug store. Trust me I would not be alone at a meet and I would be well protected. Something was very strange with the guy so I told him to forget about the meet and sale. I have made watch purchases in public places before but this guy gave me a very bad vibe. Not worth the hassle or trouble dealing with a goof. The way I look at it you can't lose something you do not have. However I would have liked to own that Speedmaster. Anyone ever had a experience like this one?
