Zero feedback.
Can get crystal replaced for free but they didn't bother.

It doesn't look like a scam exactly but I'd be very wary.

Yea I saw that, but would be picking it up in person though.
It does seem weird he didn't get the crystal replaced, which made me wonder.
I've asked for his number though so I can ask him a few a questions.
Also, hes dropped it to £2800 now as well.

is it normal for a sub to have so many scratches?

It's so scratched because it's plexi glass and not sapphire crystal. To a collector it is, more often than not,important to be all original rather than looking pretty. I'm assuming there's no original box/papers? If you can get it for 3200 or less it's a bargain. Value will increase significantly as they're getting harder to find in good condition.

Might be worth asking if the scratches can be buffed out a bit. I definitely wouldn't change it to sapphire.

I'm still waiting on a reply from this guy, but if its been serviced by Rolex then its safe to assume its not stolen and is indeed legit? In this case, box and papers aren't important to and can always be acquired later I suppose.

Certsinlynlooks/sounds legit. Don't bother buying box/papers for it. RSC paperwork is fine for a vintage watch. Meet up at an AD to look and get them to verify that all is present and correct. Call in advance and make sure this is OK. Tell them if it's all good and you buy you will be looking for them to arrange a service. Some shit dealers won't or will attempt to charge a fee. A good dealer should even call rolex to make sure it's not stolen.

One here for £3.5k with box and papers in mint condition:

Something about the other one strikes me as a bit off.

Really? Have you got any pictures or links to pictures of it been done? Given everyone from the (now) staid Audmers to the avant garde of Hublot plays with rubber when using gold and steel I thought it might work quite well…

I'm not huge in to my watches and I know its not up there with the brands usually thrown about here, but saw this getting some heat on HUKD. Seemed a good price and a not too bad looking watch…

This place does the end links. Personally I just don't like the look of the way the rubber B connects to the watch, it looks out of place.
I like the AP ROO on rubber strap but the AP bracelets really are much better, particular on the RO. But I am biased:

Pretty expensive for a head only 16800, good 93150 link should add 5-700 to that plus what does "original paperwork" mean, doubt it's full set with that description, otherwise they would have listed exactly whats included, much better to be had at that price.
