    Saw a post on Craigslist and thought it was to good to be true, but thoughts what the heck, I'll give it a try anyways. It was a 42mm Milanese with AppleCare listed at $700. I email the guy and then got his number and texted him. I offered him $700 straight up and he accepted. I met him today at my local Apple Store and paid him and got the watch. I think I did pretty well, a $699 watch plus tax and AppleCare, all for $700. I am pretty stoked because I has one on order, but cancelled it today.

    wow that was a really good deal. So it included Applecare plus?? :O wow. I wonder if he just changed his mind and he was out of the return policy and just wanted his money back.

    The guy isnprobably on here honestly, because he said he was one of the first apple watches to arrive in the city I live on, so I am guessing he was maybe following on here. Anyways, he is in the process of moving, so Justen wanted to free up some cash to buy a Phillips Hue Lighting system.

    Is it just a little dirty in the picture or is it damaged on the screen?

    Did you transfer AppleCare+ the right way? https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202712

    but if you bought it new you'd have a 2 week return window.

    Sounds like it could possibly be stolen, although $700 makes sense for a used watch.

    That it not damage just some debris that I wiped off a little bit ago.

    Wasn't stolen, we went to the Apple Store to correctly transfer the AppleCare and everything checked out and was transferred. I was worried when I first saw the ad, but after talking to the guy and meeting him, I knew that this was a legitimate item and price.

    ----------

    The watch was opened, he wore it for a few days before we decided he wanted to free up some cash so he could put it towards moving expenses.

    As long as you were able to transfer the warranty and such. Sounds good.

    Craigslist is a great site. You can buy an Apple Watch, get a job, buy a house, buy a car, find a wife, pick up a transgender hooker (or a traditional hooker), and find a new apartment and cheap used furniture for when your wife kicks you out...all on one site!!!
