    I am mostly lurking and fishing in bay, would like to learn also more sites actually Dr. Ranfft's web site is also good: bidfun

    I discovered also another auction site, which in comparison with bay prices is more reasonable on the pieces I was hunting: Antiquorum - Glycine "Automatic", circa 1931. Fine waterproof, self-winding, stainless steel " Staybrite" military wristwatch.

    would love to hear other experiences.thanks for the helpful thread

    Check out Dr. Ranfft's sites - auctions; history; and an amazing movement archive.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    In fact, I'd suggest using Dr Ranfft's movement database to counter-check the movement whenever you consider buying a vintage watch - it's a treasure trove!

    For me, I've had a good experience buying from Finertimes. Bit pricier, but the item was exactly as described, and worked nicely.

    On my blog there's a list of vintage watch sites I frequently visit:

    The blog article is in Norwegian, but the links should work, allright. ;)

    Those are some good links ArneHR!
    I have also heard good things about Chrono24, although the pricing seems a bit steep.

    Another good reference tool is this link:
    The Metatechnical Cabinet - Movements
    Pink Floyd. Dark side of the moon. Side one, track four.
