Any Experience With Jacobtime.com?
seahunter posted a topic in Market WatchHello, I realize this is a ballpoint, but thought I would try to post this. I just purchased a Montblanc 7569 - Meisterstuck Platinum Line LeGrand Ballpoint Pen from JacobTime.com. They have good online reviews, and an "A" rating with the Brooklyn BBB. I know the pitfalls of buying gray market items, but just wanted to see if anyone here had any experience with this store. Everything looks correct - boxes, owner's manual/warranty card booklet, etc. but just wanted throw it out there. I have read that shining a light into the pen to see if it looks red is no longer a valid test, as good fakes can do that now, and not all Montblancs shine red apparently. I am too blind even with a magnifying glass to see the serial number on the back of the clip, so I can't verify that at this time. The pen feels a little lighter than I expected, but I do not know if I am correct on that. One question I have, is the threads in the barrel and the "cap" of the pen. The 7569 is Platinum, so would the metal threaded sections be made out of a silver metal, or should they be brass? I tried to take some pictures, but my macro shooting capability is not very good, so the pictures are pretty much useless as far as authenticating. Is there anything else I can look for to verify if this pen is authentic? Is there enough online feedback to trust that Jacobtime.com is a "legitimate" grey market seller? From what I saw, they seemed legitimate. I'd really appreciate any feedback! Thank you!
