The Poor Man’s Watch forum is just that; an online forum where people sell and trade watches. The cool thing about it is that unlike eBay, the prices aren’t driven up by the punters. You can easily pick up a Seiko Orange Monster for $100, or a Omega Seamaster for under $1000. There’s actually two sides the forum the “PMWF” side, where everything is under $1000, and then there’s the “Premier” side. On the premier side, expect to the prices to run over $1000 for everything. Most the time prices are negotiable, but there are a few exceptions and that’s normally stated in the ad. In some cases, you can even trade, but again that’s at the discretion of the seller.
I like the forum because you can negotiate. Most of the sellers are quite knowledgeable though, so don’t expect to get away with anything. The good deals move fast too, so it’s a good thing to check for new posts repeatedly throughout the day. And there are a whole lot of good deals. From people who buy a watch, don’t like it, and flip it, to people who got caught buying watches by their wives, you can usually find what you are looking for just by watching the forums for a bit. I would suggest caution when buying though, sellers are not moderated and there’s always a chance that a scammer might have snuck into the room.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
