    There's a guy locally selling this watch for $400, it's supposed to be almost new. He thinks it's the SS model, but to me it's hard to tell which one it is. Can you tell based off of his picture?
    Thank you in advance!

    Aluminum in my eyes. The crown is a gray color.

    Tell the guy to look on the back of the watch and it will have the the case type printed there.

    Your seller has no idea what model this is? Seems very strange, being its engraved on the back of the Watch. And it's Space Gray aluminum.

    Apparently the OP and Seller never thought to do that. Still strange to me on a transaction like this. I personally wouldn't buy it just based on how obvious this is.

    A picture of the back as others have stated will tell you what you need to know.

    If it's aluminum then even if it's a series 2 you can buy BNIB for that price so why buy used at full price? But if it's SS then $400 is a steal, assuming it's not stolen or iCloud locked that is...

    OP.. If you decide to buy it make sure an meet at and Apple Store to do the transaction. Have Apple look it over 1st and make sure it's not stolen or locked before handing over the moola!

    I did this when selling my S0 SS LB, I met the person at the Apple Store to put their mind at rest and the staff member even watched over us to ensure nobody tried to swipe it as we were doing the sale.

    Agreed. Meeting at an Apple Store if applicable, would at least weed out anybody that's tempting to be dishonest. Another option would to meet at a local police department, if there was not an Apple store within reaching distance.
