Re: eBay experience

I tried to buy a new watch on Chrono24. The new Hamilton PSR LED, a pre-order. I committed to buy at the stated price (a well known store in Germany) my offer (the stated price} was excepted and about a week later they cancelled my order. Lucky me then bought it from Francis Gaye in the UK with 20%...

Re: Old previous discontinued collections

Your best option is eBay. Take your time to understand how it works if you have never used it before and do some research. Firstly, use the search feature to find out the sold price of the watches that you are interested in, this will give you a good idea of the ballpark price to be paying and don't...

Re: eBay experience

Depending on value and brand, Chrono24 is becoming a serious alternative for watches. I like that you can negotiate directly and the escrow service for abstracted payment which works well both ways. These days there are usually a number of CWs up, though asking prices are generally steeper than eba...

Re: eBay experience

Hello everyone I'm new here and would ike to know what your opinion is on selling CW watches in eBay? I realise this forum has a sales section but I am nowhere near the 30 posts required to access it and have no intentions of posting 30 random comments. I recently listed a CW for sale on eBay, all ...

Free: C60 Pro Chronograph (The Beast) User Manual - Free

Could a mod please move this to the "for sale" section, as it would be better placed there?

And so the penny drops for another CW buyer
To be fair, not many watches hold their value, but any buyer is going to be in a better place if they buy wisely.

Re: Retained value

It's the going rate, I'd say. The extra straps make it a good buy.

It's a bit of a mugs game to pay full price for a CW anyway, given the regular sales and nearly new prices, not to mention the frequent money off vouchers.

Re: Christopher Ward C65 Homage

Interesting choice of watch to copy.

I wonder if the recent CW clear outs, resulting in lots of manual wind C65s flooding eBay, have given the impression that these watches are super popular?

Re: Watches that never made it past a prototype

I think they're great, but it may be their uniqueness that makes them attractive.

I wonder how well they would have sold had they been given a production run?

Re: Tribus Watches

This is a brand new brand with mediocre looking watches (IMO) hitting the streets at the price of mint used Omegas. I have to say I'm rather disappointed, not so much that I couldn't justify spending that much, more that I cannot see the value in any of these watches, particularly to think that the...

Re: Red Bezel Tridents

My watch is the 38mm and no red bezel version of the C61 exists, so I had to go a different route for mine.

Thanks for the compliment though.

Re: Red Bezel Tridents

Mk 1s come around less often, but are generally less expensive than Mk 2s, however, the 38mm watches seem to be gaining in popularity, as the fashion for larger watches wanes. A word of caution if considering swapping movements, cases or bezels to achieve your goals, the parts might seem like identi...

Re: Red Bezel Tridents

My goal is to get a red bezel Trident...I've seen the MK2 & MK3, just curious if CW made a red bezel MK1. The Mk1's I've seen have the hour dot indicators, which mimic the Rolex and I like how they look. I just searched in ebay and there is an MK2 for sale, but prefer one that has all the documenta...
