  1. Hi I am not looking for support or pity I am relaying how one forum can treat people in my case it was the TRF from what I can gather I am not the only person who has been ejected from the TRF. Thanks for all of the responses.
  2. Not sure I understand where your coming from the TRF is the only thing in my life I have been banned from. On reflection and as previously commented on by others the TRF is elitist The Watch Forum is more grounded.
  3. Hi four different sources verified the watch is genuine the person who I bought the watch from in Spainwho I have used before without issue. My son who as stated is very knowledgeable in respect of the Rolex brand he researched this particular watch on the internet and confirmed it is genuine. A highly respected local jeweller who is well versed in the Rolex brand other high end watch brands who I paid to authenticate it he confirmed it is real. I sold the watch to a UK dealer who carried out his own inspection prior to paying me to confirm it is genuine which it is I was then paid in full surely four different sources cant be wrong. I was upset at the reaction of the TRF there was no opportunity to prove the watch is genuine despite the fact I had been a pledge member for two years. Blocking emails and a life ban seems OTT to me perhaps they do not like admitting they were wrong.

  5. The Jeweller is a very well respected he services and values many top end brand watches although not accredited I doubt very much he is wrong as he would not have written a report stating and confirming it was genuine. The back was removed and detailed photographs were taken (I have copies of the photographs) of all angles of the watch the face and serial number and strap all matched as did the model number it was a 11660T Y serial number. I bought the watch from a dealer I have used in the past without problem I have since sold the watch on to another dealer he carried out his own inspection prior to paying me and confirmed it was genuine. My son who is somewhat of an expert on the Rolex brand checked out the watch prior to me buying it he stated from day one it was real and he was proved to be right. The only thing that let my sale on TRF was the quality of the pictures I had put on the forum. What upset me the most was I was not allowed to prove the watch was genuine with photographic evidence and a written report confirming it was genuine they chose to ignore my emails I did eventually get my pledge money back via Paypal.
  6. Sorry should read TRF not RLT not sure where that came from
  7. I was a TRF pledge member for two years my gripe is although they are extremely knowledgeable they do not always get it right. I decided to advertise my genuine Rolex Sea Dweller for sale within a couple of days it was removed and I was expelled as they said it was a fake. I took the watch to a local jeweller who inspected it took detailed photographs and wrote a report stating it was real. The TRF would not communicate with me when I emailed them the information confirming the watches authenticity nor to the numerous emails I sent after this it seemed they could not accept they were wrong. I eventually accepted they were not going to respond let alone offer me an apology I then contacted Paypal I explained the situation they were able to get my $25 annual pledge money returned.
  8. I was a member of The Rolex Forum they were only interest in top end expensive watches that many can not afford. I find the TWF is more grounded.
  9. I have had a bitter experience with the TRF has anybody had any good or bad experiences.
  10. I left school on a Friday and started my apprenticeship as a mechanic on the following Monday. My first wage was £14 a week towards the end of my apprenticeship I decided it was not what i wanted to do for the rest of my life I left and became a nurse in a Mental hospital. A massive change I know I did work with quite a few other men who also had an engineering background. One of the benefits of the job I loved was the benefit of being able to retire at fifty five with a pension there was no way I would have been able to achieve that if I had stayed on the tools.
  11. I worked for the NHS for thirty two years I am now retired so I know how hard you will have worked enjoy your retirement.
  12. Thanks can I block these in case they try to bombard me.
  13. I clicked on "here" which lead me to a YouTube video
  14. Omegawatts wanting advice on Rolex new member with one post seems odd stating a watch from here.
  15. It always seem their offers are very low but this does not seem to be reflected in their selling prices. I accept they are in it to make a profit but surely their costs are not so high.
