  1. Check my first post, I think your kit is way out of my budget. whoops i missed that :lol: , to be honest you might be better off saving awhile and getting something like an audiolab 8000a and some old B&W 601s2 standmounts (should be able to get both for less than 300) , the other alternative if you dont need silly volumes would be to get a T class amp which is RCA only (cd player etc- no turntable input) - these T class amps give performance that makes some very expensive kit sound rubbish , i have a topping TP20 mk2 myself (you can get one for about £45)
  2. how much are you looking to spend? , i have a rega brio-r in black and a pair of KEF R100's in walnut im selling at the moment due to upgraditous ....
  3. they are both saying the same thing, only one sounds better than the other , all that happened is that one company bought the other out , most sicura have cheap pin pallet movements (you do get the odd good one with a decent movement). people just put 'brietling' in the title when selling on ebay so some muppet will pay a stupid price for what is generally an inexpensive cheap watch (and it works).
  4. you can get most modern decent movements into chronometer grade spec (if they are not already) without having a bit of paper , to be honest the title 'chronometer grade' is just a marketing strategy.
  5. this is a new nomos i bought recently, the watch is 36mm but its all dial and is not lost on my large wrist - so look for dial size rather than case size.
  6. http://www.marktplaa...on-no-0458.html *thats with full box+papers etc. or about £215 http://www.ebay.ca/i...s-/171273024107 your normal house insurance should cover up to 1k for a single item without having to tell them about it.
  7. ...........ebay does have a regulatory body - itself :lol:
  8. as far as i know RRP is just set by the seller , yes its is a sad world we live in when people want to rip other off, tho the world is not a nice place and this has been going on since cave man times when one walked past anothers cave -noticed he was taking a dump and stole the rabbits he had caught earlier.
  9. they do it because there is always some silly sod who will pay it. if someone pays £800 for a £150 watch thats down to their own stupidity. theres no 'price rigging' involved, just 'a' price which you can make the decision or pay or not.
  10. unfortunately in the watch collecting world , no it does not make it more unique or rare (and you are trying to make this appeal to watch collectors -who quite often know there stuff , thats why you are here asking this question) , there are literally hundreds of lost watch 'houses' , remember all you had to do was buy a generic case and dial and have your company name (or whatever you wanted) printed on the dial.
  11. many watch houses have disappeared over the years - this does not make them 'rare' , if you cant find any information about a watch on the internet generally theres nothing special about it and its worth its weight in gold (literally) however i can tell you some one (you ) thinks its worth around 380 euros http://www.donedeal....s-watch/6474831 :lol:
  12. its simple - you did not bid enough , all snipping software does is bid the snipers max bid in the last few seconds -if you had bid higher than the sniper you would have still won it. theres nothing mysterious about sniping software , you still put your max bid in it the same as when you bid on ebay as normal.
  13. the days of buying watches at a cheap price on ebay is long gone , about 7/8 years ago i was making decent pocket money buying up old chronographs- refurbing them and selling them on with better photographs , now i cant even buy an old valjoux/landeron/venus for what i used to sell them for (at the time i was paying between £50-80 for them) . most things on ebay are cheaper elsewhere and regardless of sales fees the chances of you getting robbed by dodgy buyers is too high for me to concider selling anything on there and i use it as a last resort , even gumtree is better for sellers and you are dealing face to face with cash. these days i use ebay for things i cant find elsewhere or on the odd occasion something is cheaper than the shops.
  14. comon mach...its a pawnbrokers , they try and charge silly money for everything from watches to ipads.
