When I received the watch I could tell it was not gold at all. I tested it for gold and it failed. It is brass or other base metal. Reputable auction houses will say 'gold-toned' or similar when they don't know if a watch is gold or not. Until now I've never had an auction house say 'gold case' without it being gold. Most auction houses make an effort to determine if a watch case is gold and if not they say gold-filled or gold-plated.
Omaha Auction Center refused to take the watch back for a refund - they didn't even offer a partial refund.
A lot of people bid on auctions online now (usually when they cannot be there in person). They rely more than ever on accurate descriptions. When descriptions are inaccurate (or knowingly misleading) leading to the purchase of items other than as described it means less bidders in the future, lower prices realized, and perpetuates any negative perceptions of auction houses.
You can thank disingenuous auction houses like Omaha Auction Center for that! Buyer beware!
