    Please read this entire section, it is all very important.

    These rules are in place to provide a better trading experience for everyone.

    Whilst we want to keep the forum as open as possible we have to introduce these measures to safe guard our community from scammers. While we understand these measures might frustrate a few members they are for the overall good of the forum and are in place to protect not just us all, but the reputation and integrity of this great forum.

    Ads NOT following these guidelines will be deleted immediately.
    • Include 5 (or more) current photos that are at least 1024 pixels wide. Bigger is better and will sell your item
    • Photos should only be hosted on Omega Forums, not Photobucket or other services
    • Include a price, (including currency ie. USD/EUR/AUD) and a description. A realistic buy it now price must be included. ALL relevant info and specifications must be within your ad.
    • Only one watch per sales thread
    • Absolutely NO fakes or "homage" (mimic) watches
    • Linking to your eBay auction is OK, provided the above conditions are met first. Linking to your eBay auctions in non watch sales threads is not permitted.
    • Please state if you accept returns and the duration of time a buyer has to return the item.
    • DO NOT DELETE THE LISTING OR THE PRICE WHEN SOLD - It is used for reference for sellers and buyers alike. It will be reinstated if deleted! This applies to buyers who request it to be deleted.
    • A Link to 5 recent feedback on sales or purchases when listing a watch, including the WTB thread should you have feedback.
    • Keep all communication to PM in respect to a deal rather than email or other forms.
      • Do not list phone numbers. keep all communication to PM in respect to a deal rather than email, WhatsApp etc.. You can of course openly discuss the item in question publicly , but not in the sales post . Such discussions are to be respectful and non-accusatory. Serious concerns should be directed in reports to staff.
    In order to reply in a message thread a member must be in good standing and have 200 or more postings in the general forums.

    BUMPING of your listing:

    We know you have more than one watch for sale and understand that you want it noticed etc. Owning the first page is not necessary as people do look past the first page.
    • Spare a thought for the other dealers that also use this section and bump accordingly.
    Requirements to list in the Dealer Sales Section (NEW DEALERS ONLY)
    • Proof has to be submitted to us that you are a dealer - Existing dealers who have been selling here for a long time are exempt from this.
    • You cannot just come to the forum to sell your items without contributing further time to the forum in terms of posting in other sections.
    • You, as dealers have information that might be useful to the community. We are aware you might not have all the time in the world to post in other sections but it is required from now on. (Includes existing dealers)
    Proof Required (new dealers)
    • A copy of your business license so we have your credentials
    • A link to your website - If you have one
    • 5 Feedback links to deals concluded (every listing) - If private sellers can do it, so can the dealers. This will help you in the long run.

    Exemption to post as a dealer.


    What is not tolerated at all!
    • Using other peoples photos. Any photos used that are not your own will mean the advert being pulled and your selling privileges revoked and a possible ban.
    • Public bashing of someones price. Remember its their item and they can sell it for whatever price they deem fit or they think its worth regardless if you/we agree its worth that.
    Leaving feedback
    • We have a seller/buyer feedback section here have a look for your seller/buyer feedback if you are unsure on the person, you can also ask the forum if anyone has experience in dealing with that person.
    • When a transaction is completed leave feedback as a seller and a buyer, it helps the forum know who is good and bad.
    • If you have any concerns or a dispute about previous dealings and description accuracy, promises, shipping, etc that can be brought up in the seller feedback section. Please do not post this in the regular forums.
    • Slander is not permitted, neither is violence or abusive language - A ban will follow.

    Thank you for reading and understanding.

    There is no longer a 200 post rules exemption even if feedback is supplied. So in short, to sell here you need to contribute to the forum some what, rather than post a few times, then ask for exemption, sell a watch and leave.

    Why has this changed?

    This has changed to safeguard you from being fleeced out of your hard earned money no matter how big or small the amount is. As scammers adjust how they attempt to scam people we also have to adjust how we tackle it.

    In recent months we've had members that have lifetime bans creating new memberships through means of VPN etc, that pretend to be someone else which is fraud in its self. To catch these people out we have to put hours of work in, its like being a detective.

    We also simply have people that come and post a few times, ask for exemption, sell a watch and leave. We are not eBay, we are a group of like minded individuals who share a passion not just in watches but other things, which we need to protect.

    As mods, we are inundated with requests which ALL need to be looked at, verified and decided if they 'qualify' to sell on here. Please remember, we do not get paid huge sums of cash, we do it for love, which takes endless hours out of our day, family time and even holiday time.

    Please understand why we have taken this step.

    The OF team :)
