    High bids on cheap knockoffs

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-M...h/272916776339

    $100+ ??

    Any idea why are they bidding on this thing?
    Looks like a cheap damaged GMT Master knockoff

    I think you may have answered your own question, it's because it's a old watch with patina (see damage) which looks something like a Rolex if you squint, a hit with hipster types and the unwary.

    "Datomatic" on the dial? That would mean a rubbish Cattin pin-lever inside.

    That was going to be my answer. Any old watch with a SS case will bring a premium.

    It's a stainless-cased diver in a modern size with the right amount of patina. That checks all the boxes.

    Is this really that overpriced? If you like the watch, thats what its worth.
