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...]
When you buy an item, you expect seller to deliver the item within a reasonable time. Period.
OK, as you said, things happened. But when there is a delay, you know the cause (eg, custome paper not proper, shipper delay, etc) But When the item did not get in after 6 weeks, not traceable and not one including seller could provide a satisfactory reason and furthermore you had done what you could locally and can't obtain the answer, you raise a concern.....I'm confused, is there a problem for a buyer raising a concern in this forum? You said six weeks is too short, so in your opinion, how long should I have waited before I raise a concern? You might know the seller is a honest person. Remember, I don't know the seller. Is there a problem for me to raise a concern?
: Even after 6 weeks this is still something you only communicate
: about with the seller.
: If in the end the seller does not refund your money or you do not
: have the watch, you should come here and tell your story.
: 6 weeks is a long time, i agree. But there can be delays at customs
: which is beyond the sellers control.
