    It finally happened! One of my watches is on Hodinkee...

    Well the day has finally arrived. A watch that I own (the same model at least) has appeared in the H Shop, massively hyped and priced and a modest (for them) $1300.

    It's the Delvina Super Compressor listed below, and looking at the movement pics, it could use a good service!

    And the best part? I've currently got mine on Ebay. Now to quickly edit my listing with a load of hype!

    Strangely, I can't find your watch on eBay; I know someone who might want it.

    It might be because I only have UK and Europe shipping options available atm. But I'll change it to allow shipping to America.

    Also it appears that the Hodinkee magic has worked! Ive received an offer for mine on ebay from a dealer in Belgium. No doubt if I accept it'll be back up next week with some fancy pics and a $1k price

    Thanks for considering that. I will keep an eye open for it, but feel free to pm me with the listing number if you like.

    You should change it to allow for shipping to Hoodinkee! If they think that it's worth as much as they are selling one for, maybe they will consider it worth buying one for that much too.....?!!

    With these compressors in the ESPA cases I heard it is nearly impossible to get parts for a service and repair. Did you run into that issue? I am looking at finding one of the 36mm cased Compressors, but I am worried about biting off more than I need to chew.

    Thanks,
