    Tinyeye and google reverse image search found squat. Another did find it though. https://www.avito.ru/sankt-peterburg...0h_g_850384809

    I have to add that reverse picture searching running auctions from ebay mostly results in finding nothing. google saves the pictures on an interval. For example im unable to find Yuri's watch .

    So your motivations for not wanting to include links to running auctions are the off chance you can get a better deal ... ?
    Of course, they are not: only a stupid could have had such hidden motivations in mind -or distort the true meaning of my post this way, I'm afraid.

    Anyway, I am glad there is an explicit rule for all to follow because sometimes I happen to fear that some individual's "best judgement" might just not be good enough.

    Congarts Comrade, I'm impressed.
    I googled that image before posting to make sure it didn't return any useful result within the first pages, the search engine you used must be real good... just out of curiosity, how long did it take?
    Also, do you think that if I manipulated the image (for instance, removing the box with the factory logo and leaving the watch alone), it would have been able to find it anyway? I have lots to learn on this field...

    I would be interested in this too, send me a pm with an altered picture and lets find out!

    You distinctly allude to not wanting people to intrude on bids so they can get a better deal. What, may I ask, is "unfair" if that is not the case?

    If that wasn't suggestive enough you explicitly state yourself in the matter.

    Having the link or not is generally irrelevant, because I, or anyone else, could easily find it, as dutchassassin also proves. May as well do the courtesy of just sharing it outright. This is a discussion after all, is it not? If such rules were so explicit why would we be interpreting them using our "best judgement"?





    I'd rather someone buys the item, regardless of price, than it go unnoticed and end up in a rubbish bin.

    I am glad I could point Comrade Straight Time towards this auction so that he may bid on it. No need to thank me, I wish you the best of luck in acquiring this watch.

    No need indeed, I had been keeping an eye on that watch since the day it was posted (there, not here on WUS).

    Had you just checked better, you would have noticed that my registration on that site comes way before your heads-up (it's even earlier than shown in my profile, actually), saving yourself from writing a presumptuos and silly post.

    The intent of my post was tongue in cheek, not serious. Cheers

    I only wished to point out WUS' rules, which refer to live auction format only (that is, not "any kind of sale") and don't leave much space for individual readings about what's allowed and what's not, IMHO.
    That's not up to you to judge. There's a button below each post that lets you notify moderators if you think the content is inappropriate, just use it and leave it for the moderators to decide what's what.

    This entire line of discussion is off topic.
