    Well, i suspect that the meteorite is the oldest part of said watch, so the dial alone might qualify for vintage !!!!

    It could be a good conversation starter if aliens - or Namibians - come to visit you.

    ^I used to own one of those, do miss it.

    I saw one of the GSOTM variants just a couple of weeks ago and have to admit it was much much nicer in the metal than I expected from seeing so many internet pics. Would be too large for me and certainly don't have the money anyway, but I was quite taken with it.

    Personally like it a lot, be careful with the 9 hour marker, have seen a few where it wasn‘t on straight. Mine got the dial exchanged for that which was a bit of a malarchy given they are all different.

    I'm actually trying to purchase one of these right now as a first watch, sadly it's taking a while as my first watch purchase resulted in a £7700 loss..

    I think it's a unique and stunning watch, although I can see why some may be dissuaded and put off with the dark date window and colour scheme.

    By the way for reference, (even though I'm sure everyone knows what the OP is talking about.) I'll leave this picture of the watch in question, just in case. 453556-43e3050925b8949b5dd52576bf89196e.jpg

    Before I had my eyes set on the GSOTM Meteorite as my first watch I actually had encountered a solid 18k gold Speedmaster professional.

    It was from late 2011, came with solid gold clasp and all papers and box. (Bear in mind at that time I had just broken into the world of high end watches and thusly I was simply stunned.) I ended up saving and purchasing the watch, using PayPal to pay.

    Sadly PayPal somehow lost my funds, telling me that I had never even paid despite me and the seller agreeing I had paid PayPal. My bank could not retrieve the funds for some reason and so I went back to PayPal to ask for my funds back, providing many statements showing the money leaving my account. The representative simply asked for another, then another.

    This went on for 3 months until September, where I was told the final answer was no despite an email to the UK director. They did eventually give me £5700, but they also limited my PayPal account and want to close it down so I doubt I may even be able to withdraw that money.

    Anyway apologies for the long post, but it was a pretty long story.

    Have you considered suing PayPal? If the facts are as you say, it sounds like you have a good case, and the amount seems to justify it.

    You need to engage a lawyer to get your funds back. It is a matter of principal. Not forgetting it is your hard earned money.

    All the best sincerely.
