    OK folks the word has come down. We can now sell directly to each other in the community. This is the preliminary charter. If anyone has edits/additions/suggestions to this we'd welcome them by PM. No cluttering of the thread, I'm cluttering it enough. :)

    New thread rules.

    This thread is for the purpose of selling or swapping/trading timepieces and related items(straps/winders/etc).

    There are now two options for the community;

    1) As before: A link to an advert on Adverts.ie, with all transactions and discussions to be carried out on Adverts.ie under their rules and regulations. As before you can provide photos and details of the item to help with the sale, but not trading here.

    2) New option: Adverts for sale or trading of timepieces and related items within the Watches & Timepieces community, but no Duplication of ads. If the item is for sale on Adverts/eBay/etc then any trading must be done away from this forum.

    Rules for these in forum adverts are;

    All discussions to remain on thread. No off thread dealing. This will result in a ban. Whoever offers the Asking price first gets first refusal. The Asking price is the last price that the Seller has posted for the item. After the Asking price is met, no user may offer more in an attempt to outbid the first offer. After the asking price has been accepted at this point PM exchange is OK to finalize the details.

    Please update when sold and give feedback on the deal.

    NO seeking of valuations or "testing the water". If the watch is listed here it will be deemed to be for sale or trade.

    NO auctions.

    NO bumping please.

    NO including of email or phone details in ads. Not a good plan anyway folks, but can also be seen as inviting off thread dealing.

    NO fake watches or links to fake watches. Instant ban.

    NO dealers. If you want to sell watches in this manner please use other avenues like Adverts.ie. If someone is suspected of commercial dealing a permanent ban will follow.

    As elsewhere NO quoting photos as this can be a right pain to navigate especially on phones/pads.

    While someone's posting history and post count won't be a rigid rule, this free service is first and foremost open to and for this community and moderator discretion will be in play and final.

    Boards.ie accepts no responsibility for any issues arising from adverts in this forum.

    Thanks to all and good luck with the selling and buying. :)

    Few enough were innocent in the past, few enough are innocent in the present, we just don’t know why yet.
