    Bottom Feeding Gone Odd

    Ok so some of you know my current buying playground is the sub $75 listings. I found these 2 watches from the same seller. No mention of what they are. Just Swiss Made and in original box. It did also mention they are manual wind.


    I present the Marcos watches....first up the Imelda Marcos ladies watch...





    Not sure if this was made br Nivada but this one I believe was. The Ferdnand and Imelda Marcos 25th Anniversary watch. The dial is said to be silver.





    I am still researching but the info I am finding is limited.

    The buying is getting weird...

    Based on your recent purchases, eBay is recommending the Saddam Certina.

    I'm surprised the Imelda doesn't have a stiletto heel imprinted on the dial.

    Well they arrived. Excellent original condition...but then I doubt anyone would spend money on restoring these.



    The back still has the protective coat.



    No idea what the numbers mean.



    Movement is in good shape.





    Next up is the anniversary watch. Again, back looks hardly worn. Some age to the dial but the watch looks to have been stored for decades.















    No maker's name anywhere on them. Supposedly they are Nivada. Still researching. The bands look original but only the man's one has a mark on the buckle.
