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: Forum Updates and Planned Maintenance

Here’s a quick update regarding a couple of changes that we have made on the Chronocentric forums, as well as a “heads up” regarding some maintenance planned for this coming Thursday evening (Eastern time) / Friday morning (in Europe).

Changes in the Forums. As some of you have noticed, we have changed some features of the forums over the last couple of days, in response to some misconduct on the forums. For the record, there was no hacking of accounts, but we did have bad guys (or probably one bad guy) using the names of some of our regular contributors.

Some of the changes are as follows:

  • Email addresses will only be visible to our registered users (i.e., those users who have registered by creating profiles). So if you want to post a For Sale or Want to Buy message, and you want people to have your email address, then you should either register (create a profile) or include your email address in the body of the message.
  • Only registered users will be able to use HTML in their postings.

Scheduled Maintenance. Apart from these changes, we will be doing some scheduled maintenance on the forums, late Thursday evening (Eastern time, here in the US) / early Friday morning (in Europe). While we hope that there will be no interruptions in our service, please plan accordingly. For example, if there are photos, messages, or other information that you want – on the forums or OnTheDash – grab them before we begin this maintenance.

Thanks to everyone for their patience, and let’s just hang on for a few more months, at which time we are hoping to be able to move all the forums onto a modern, new software platform.
