Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum and the reason I stumbled upon this forum is because I was doing research on this company. It's called goshortcut.com. They have an item for sale on ebay which I think is a great deal but I can't help but be skeptical due to the amount of money I might get ripped off if it turns out to be fake or a scam. I've been buying stuffs on ebay and I always find the review section very helpful but due to the amount of money involved and lack of experience buying this type of watches; I thought it'll be helpful if I do some research. Its a used chronomat evolution with diamonds for about $5.6 usd.



Here's the link.

http://cgi.ebay.com/MENS-BREITLING-EVOL ... 0664790101

Any experience with them or any feedback? :?: :?: :?:

Don't know the company or if the bezel is factory or after-market, but the watch is a real Chronomat Evo.

Looks to be aftermarket, and aftermarket diamonds on the dial which may cause servicing problems, but judging by the feedback the store seems to be legit.

Thanks a lot guys/gals! Btw, yes I posted this also on another website because I wasn't sure which one has more active members/posters. I'm planning to make the purchase asap because I have been salivating on this watch for a while :P and I just decided it's about time to get it. Now I just found out this website produces quicker replies. :lingsrock:

Any more comments, experience, feedbacks? : :?: :idea:

Just the fact that they have "all colors in stock" is a red flag that its not factory diamond work. The company seems legit, but the fact that they make no mention of the aftermarket work puts them on my blacklist.

Aftermarket or Not, you can call up and ask. GoShortcut is very honest and on point with their descriptions. I have been a loyal customer for 7 years and have bought several high end watches from them in these years and havent been disappointed. If you have your doubts, refer to their ebay seller reviews- which is 1500+ positive reviews.

ebay seller reviews are the least reliable information available - well, maybe after political advertising.

posting the same message in several threads where people voice concerns and criticism about a seller does not really improve his credibility, especially by someone who has apparently joined the forum only to distribute this message ?

And who is using the same IP address as another member who only had one post which, shockingly, was a support of Goshortcut.com

All that we need to know right there, account banned for breach of rules.
