    1) as for buying pre-own, you may want to read this thread.


    2) always ask buyer to verify the watch before purchase

    What's the process of asking buyer to verify watch?

    Keep a collateral or is there a regulated middle man who can keep the full cash while waiting for authentication ?

    only the buyer will be deciding if the watch in concern needs verification. no one else will be asking buyer to verify watch.

    who keeps the collateral? seller? what does seller want as collateral? then again will a buyer hand over a collateral just to buy a watch?

    even if there is a regulated middle man? who is the body/agency who approve of this middle man? then again, you are making things even more complex now. you have a situation where the seller is wary of the buyer and vice versa especially when both are strangers to one another. now you add another stranger into the equation.

    I think this very much can and should be settled privately between the buyer and seller. Determine, discuss and decide what is most comfortable for each other and meet up to deal. There is no hard-and-fast rule; only some basic common understanding.

    And it also depends on what context you are referring to. Do you mean buyer buying from a second-hand shop, or buying from an owner/grey dealer (no shop front)? If it is the former, then quite straightforward. You buy, you pay first, you verify watch (after getting agreement from the shop) in a reasonable span of time, and that's it!

    If it is with an owner/grey dealer, then there is more flexibility what both can agree to. I have personally encountered and experienced:

    Buyers
    - no authentication needed; self-checked, paid and go
    - document transaction on self-typed piece of paper and demanded to see NRIC of seller
    - also forced seller to sign on document
    - requested authentication either at the RSC/independent watch tech
    - paid deposit first w/o seeing the watch and collected watch later

    Sellers
    - demanded deposit before authentication
    - insisted hassle-free sale and not wanting to authenticate
