Unless I’ve lost the ability to read properly, there is one on eBay with two bids, currently at £1,950. :shock:

I am convinced there has been some cosmological EVENT that is draining commonsense from buyers of CW watches.

Just had a quick look, there are FIVE (!) on eBay - and £1950 is the second cheapest!

Must be people who couldn't get a Moonswatch. :lol:

This watch was aimed at people who trade in stock markets for a living, rather than watch enthusiasts. They are the very definition of having more money than sense. :roll:

I don't know about that, but they are certainly used to buying things then selling at a profit.

Aha! So maybe the previous POTUS (the one with golf courses) wasn't wrong when he was suggesting that 'ronovirus and the vaccine was just a way of implanting nanobots in us all? :lol: :lol: :lol:

The Trade Time is a neat take on a GMT, and even ignoring the GMT feature is attractive looking. The inner wheel doesn't stand out like the outer bezel of a worldtimer, for instance.

I think the BC has demonstrated that CW has a good value proposition, especially the continued praise from Watchfinder. It's not just one article, it's all of them. If the BC is a good deal relative to the competition, then a Trade Time is much the same as an inexpensive piece of whimsy for well heeled traders. By the same token, other items in the CW current and back catalogue may be equally recognised as the great value buys they are and have been.

I doubt many of them have more money than sense!

From what I can see those that look at tradetime are more likely amateurs, with a laptop in their rather small bedroom. That or the delusional thinking that crypto has real value.

The eBay profit probably wouldn’t be worth the effort for someone who was a professional.

Crypto is all around the ring as that market is always open. I think the price is close to the Sealander GMT, ignoring the 40% discount of course.

I offered $650 usd for one and got an automatic rejection, with an eBay “suggestion” of 10x my offer. :p I’m not even considering 2x my offer. Perhaps I should have punted with an offer denominated in DogeCoin?
