A marketplace for chronographs, dive watches and other tool-type wristwatches and timepieces

This forum is for BUYING, SELLING and TRADING only--not for discussing watches. Please limit postings to specific ads for buying, selling or trading watches, parts or accessories that that match at least one of the following categories:

Please see our ChronoTrader Policies and Terms of Use. Learn more about How To Include Photos In Your Postings.

Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]

Event: Status of Forums / Plans Going Forward

Over the last few days we have had significant technical issues with both ChronoTrader and the OTD Discussion Forum.

Current status is as follows:

  • ChronoTrader has been repaired and restored, and seems to be operating satisfactorily
  • On the OTD Discussion Forum -- All messages have been restored, but the dates of the postings are not correct and the number of views has been reset to zero. We are working to address both these issues, but in the meanwhile, the forum is operating properly, in terms of posting and replying to messages
  • Profile issues -- we have had some recent issues regarding Profiles, and are working on the solution

Most importantly, these technical issues have made it 100% clear that we need to migrate to a new forum software package, as soon as reasonably possible, and we are exploring the best alternatives. Of course, the critical issue will be migrating all the OTD discussion forum postings, so that we continue to have this wealth of information available for the community. A robust "Search" feature will be critical in the selection of the new software package.

Thanks to everyone for the continued support, as we have faced these technical challenges. Looking forward to a great future for this community, supported by a modern discussion forum.
