    I decided to buy an Apple Watch on eBay... Then the same exact one that I bought and ordered from Apple just this afternoon, SHIPS!

    Now I have two Apple Watch 38MM with Classic Buckle on their way... Of course it couldn't have happened before I paid a premium to buy from eBay.

    How much did you pay? Just curious since EBay prices are probably ridiculous.

    Not the op but I paid about $40 more for a 38mm sport. When you factor in eBay's cut and PayPal along with the fact that it was free shipping the seller didn't make more then $1 or $2. Should be shipping tomorrow!

    that's it? Why would anyone even bother selling it for that amount?

    I paid $825 plus overnight shipping on eBay... So basically after taxes, $150 more than retail.

    It was an auction so I am assuming he was hoping for much more then what I won it for.

    Patience is a virtue that this forum doesn't really espouse.

    And I made sure that there was enough in the listing and in messages that if this is a fake or he didn't actually have a watch I can win the eBay claim. I still have my 38mm SG through apple that I can wait for.

    You are on an apple forum.... That word doesn't even exist here! :p

    I fully admit to not having any patience... If I can for just $40 more get my watch a full 4-7 weeks early then my apple order then I consider it worth it.
