    This Italian vendor is offering some attractive looking watches.
    Trouble is - the lack of dates or detailed descriptions.
    Any comments ?

    First this Universal Geneve

    MEGA RARE UNIVERSAL GENEVE COMPUR 30 "SAILING KNOT" VINTAGE CHRONOGRAPH CAL. 286 | eBay



    Then this very simplistic looking Longines


    MEN'S LONGINES CAL. 284, VINTAGE, STAINLESS STEEL 34,8 MM, SUPERB GREY DIAL | eBay


    And this Angelus


    RARE ANGELUS VINTAGE CHRONOGRAPH CAL. 215, WONDERFUL DIAL, FANCY LUGS, 35 MM

    Universal
    22 watchers and no bidders.
    Nice piece, distressed dial.Really worth $2000??

    Longines
    I thought reworked dial - he says original?

    ANGELUS
    Great piece, but case is a disaster. He says "quite good condition" I think not. 8 watchers and no bidders.
    Walk away

    I never but top watches from a comparatively low count seller

    Prices are about double what I'd be prepared to consider. There will be better offerings - just wait.

    You might find it a good idea to put up a wanted ad, or search the classifieds on here for a nice watch. Sometimes ebay can be a bit dodgy.. or other times simply what you want might not be available.

    I was hunting a 1910 - 1920 Borgel trench watch.. couldn't find one good enough on ebay and ended up buying one off a member on here. Granted, i got lucky and he just happened to be thinking about selling a couple.. but you never know.

    I am truly so much happier for buying the watch i did from a respected member on the forum than a random from ebay.

    Hmmm, third ebay ID. Not to be trusted EVER!

    I really need to jack up my prices but then I actually like to sell watches.

    I'm happy to sell a watch for more then I put into it but sometime I take a loss just to see a nice old watch get a new lease of life..
