You can't restore an Apple Watch in iTunes so there is no way of removing the firmware that's currently on it. Even downgrading an Apple Watch requires you to send it in for service. The only way of fully wiping an Apple Watch is to do it from your paired device, or through erase all content and settings on the watch itself, neither of which are possible in demo mode. All you can do is try to get your money back, you likely bought a stolen watch.

All good, I have had one since release so I figured I would give you both the whole story about restoring them for future reference.

Hi, I was wondering if you managed to take off the demo mode. I just bought one on eBay and was wondering whether it was a mistake.

I never had one with demo mode on it, mine was running the normal WatchOS.
