Somebody educate me please ! Saw this watch on Ebay (192483627590 ) and I don't understand why it's selling with such a high price?

Well...Have I got a deal for you!
I'll sell you mine for half that price. Laughing

I think the bidders are playing around and we'll see that one relisted.
I have noticed the trend recently of unreasonably high bids,
only to see it relisted at a later date by same seller.
It happened recently with the Gruen dive watch.

Ebay was said to have killed the brick & motor stores. Though unlike video killing the radio star, Ebay has driven everyone back to the golden days of regional marts and buying local at antique venues. At least for me anyway.

I picked up this pair up at a antique show about a month ago. These were recently serviced and paid $180 for both. I gave the vendor $200 and said this was a good deal for me so keep the change.

You all better join up with the NAWCC. July 18~22 the National Convention, York PA, you'll find much better deals here than you'll ever see on the bay now days.
