The £55 membership is to join the Association of British Watch and Clock Makers to get a chance at buying the new Fears and Christopher Ward collaboration watch.

My apologies. Thanks for the correction, Olly. I remember now.

£25k for a watch and not even recorded delivery.

I think it is a record asking price. :shock:

Lets see...
Outrageous asking price
New seller so no track record
Using stock CW photos
6 units available on Ebay.UK and 16 on Ebay.com to compare with.
13 recorded sales to date with a high of $7500. and a low of $1550. The last 3 have been about $1500-$1600.

Yup.... I will put in a £1 bid and hope for the best. :escape:

It’s not there anymore, Steve

Luckily, earlier, I watched it.

It’s now showing as “sold”, go figure.

Was definitely up for £25k ono though. I have the proof :D

Thanks, Brian. That would explain why it came up with no match when I posted the number as a search on eBay.

Yes, now showing as sold!!

That will distort the numbers a bit if confirmed in 24 hours. Of course it would raise the question of why somebody would pay that.

I didn't get a chance to get in my £1 bid.
