Was the auction price $650 or was that the buy now price? Prices in-store are often higher as you are now paying for the overhead for the brick and mortar store front. You are lso taking less risk buying in-person as opposed to on-line, sight unseen. Is it fair, that is up to you. People buy watches in many different ways. As lone as you are comfortable and the outcome is favorable then I guess it is fair. The internet is full of stories of good deals and deals gone bad. Good luck. I hope you get the watch you wnat at the price you are happy with.
