Hi, anyone can advise the significant of buying used watch with paper and without paper? Besides price difference what is the disadvantage of buying those without paper?

I honestly think that the one major difference would be the authenticity of the watch without sending it to the original manufacturer for a proper verification. Also gives you a sense of security when you are wanting to purchase a timepiece (whether buyer or seller). The bonus as a seller would of course be more towards the commanding price, since sending a watch to verify will also cost you some $$. All in all it still boils down to preference. Some people do not see a need of having box and papers and some people are particular about having a full set - watch/box/papers/bezel cover, hang tag, etc.

Just my 2 cents.

For buyer:
1. Sense of security
2. Convenience of proof
3. For those who desires authenticity / collector mindset, huge plus

For seller:
1. Better price
2. Ease of transaction, no need additional verification

i think the price is not making big diferent , unless the warantty is still live, the paper or warranty card will be uselfull for you to go for service if it is still under waranty, also paper is traceable source to your watch, kind of the surat beranak
