stop.. STOP.. STOP!

I am now being haunted in my dreams by that watch that looks like the bathroom scales.. 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/392942545064

It's talking to me.

Or trying to because it didn't have a voice..

The biggest question I have is.. 

Does it come in blue?

That's a bargain 

Hmm.. what it is.. is "available".

I wouldn't bother about a box myself. Sure they are nice to have and some are nice in their own right but all watches come out the box, go in the case and when they leave the case, its usually on someone else's wrist..

I use this. 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/24-SLOT-WATCH-STORAGE-ROSE-WOOD-DISPLAY-CHEST-BOX-DISPLAY-WOODEN-CASE-CABINET-/224246115027?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286

It suits me.

For £56 + £32 shipping I'd want a watch as well as the box. :biggrin:

£32 shipping from Australia - I'd want a kangaroo to drop it off for that price! - It's an empty box ffs :bash:

Haha, £89 is a bit too much for a watch that didn't cost me much more than that.

A little ashamed to admit that I am very temted to get one from the US that is coming in around £46!

Dekla make nice watches from what I've seen. Couple of owners over at TZ that seem happy and lots of options for customisation. Wonder what the reserve is now?!

That Filson watch will be a collaboration. Shinola are a Detroit based brand that do some stuff (or used to) in house. Filson are a clothes brand.

Having seen the auction go all the way through a couple of times, my guess is that the reserve is between £450 and £500, but that is just a hunch.

I quite like the Filson one, but there is something that makes me think of a cross between Timberland and Superdry (can't really put my finger on it).

Filson are definitely in a different price bracket to either of those but stylistically Timberland is pretty bang on!

I haven't priced one of these up but £450 wouldn't be too bad I don't think.

:thumbsup:

I think the "Superdry" feeling I was getting was more to do with the case back vs Superdry clothing more than a watch-to-watch comparison.

Superdry or Tokyo Laundry would love that caseback imo!

Some watch related junk. For a start, these cufflinks with the hour markers "1ish", "2ish" etc. Imagine the stress in some quarters if that was on an actual watch. :crazy5vh:

And for those of us who will never have a real working tourbillon, consolation cuff links.

I was outbid on a gents Excalibur a couple of days ago - for not very much money - much less than Bricey's above.  I was interested in it specifically because it was the same case size and very similar shape to a very much more expensive vintage gents Omega I'm looking at - and I thought it would allow me to wear it for a while and see if the size was appropriate for me.  I'm after something special for sentimental reasons and am getting twitchy about the potential cost.

A few to share for Thursday:

Firstly for those that are fans of a big old Tempore Lux but don't like the idea of auto's, the stainless steel Chrono model is still available with the serial number of 00001:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/234000581161?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140131123730%26meid%3D9827417eb4ce4da2ad0d9f0339544c30%26pid%3D100167%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D324597843178%26itm%3D234000581161%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D5411%26algv%3DDefaultOrganic%26brand%3DLux&_trksid=p5411.c100167.m2940

s-l1600.jpg

Smart and Sporty Tissot blue face chrono at a good starting price and only 10 hours to run...

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274784096185?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

s-l1600.jpg

Certina DS Podium, Gold and Black at a crazy (imo) low price as it looks like new. I'll be honest I was sorely tempted to go for this, but I have a Certina in my collection already and am trying not to have duplicate brands in the boxes as I am a bit odd. Still wondering if there are no bids whether I might jump in late and then decide which gets to stay once it arrives.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/265156592750?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

s-l1600.jpg

I assume (possibly wrongly) that Heritor are one of those 'micro brands' that are actually just cheap watches trying to look more expensive than they really are, sort of like a Tesco no-name brand but with better marketing (ala Klaus Kobec???), if I am wrong (or right but you don't care), then this looks quite nice:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/265153196886?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

s-l1600.jpg

Another Tissot Chrono, pretty taken with this one (but plumped for something a little different this time around)

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/384156278575?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

s.gifs.gifs-l1600.jpg

Or maybe a Tissot BOGOF is of interest?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/234003693079?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

s-l1600.jpg

A Bulova dial that can't decide whether it is a Seamaster or a Raymond Weil

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274794307255?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

s.gifs-l1600.jpg

And my purchase from last night wth the Tempore Lux proceeds

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224452690848?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

Happy hunting!

I would attempt to make a list (perhaps of the more comical items) if I had a better internet connection device with multiple page and copy ability than my phone. 

I should probably buy a laptop instead of a watch but laptops are hard to wear on the wrist.

Anywhoo.. I enjoy seeing other watches on the bay I might have missed (some are serious and some are hilarious).. Cheers!

Occasionally I share something I quite like, the majority are those that either make me scratch my head or squint at the screen, but its fun to share them all and see what others find that has a similar impact on them.

 

This seems awfully low with 3 hours to go, don't know what the reserve is set at, but ever the buy it now price of £475 seems light (I just sold the silver faced model for £720).

s-l1600.jpg

I think that the black dial is usually a little cheaper second hand than the silver, but would have expected £500+ as a sales figure.

Generally less bargains at the weekend, but often the more left-field oddballs, so stay tuned for a weekend edition of ebay fun!

Assuming that is what it says it is, that's quite a special watch.

Can we pretend I've "got a good eye" and ignore that if you start at a dart board, some of the poop might end up on the bullseye?

Joking aside, my very first vintage purchase when I started collecting was a hand winding FL Sea King that I loved to bits, and then eventually broke. I've remained find of the brand because of that.

Strange brand as far as the second hand market, they seem to either be under £50 or over £1k, with little in-between.
