    Re: What about NOS?

    I purchased a Timestar Indo French collaboration watch from the 1970s that was advertised as NOS. At the time there were many on ebay. I have no reason to doubt the NOS part of the story. Yes there was a story: Found in a defunct watchmakers safe, never used et al. I bought one of the less elaborate dial models. Many were truly fantastic looking. My watchmaker said the movement was clean as a whistle inside but the oils were drying out. It was inexpensive and quietly handsome, with a gray dial, on a crappy band. I have no reason to regret the purchase though its not a top wearer. Just my 2 rupees.

    Re: What about NOS?

    True, I have never bought from any Indian seller on ebay.
    Their stuff did/do look awful.
    Which not to say anything against Indian sellers per se.
    Plenty of crappy sellers in the US and elsewhere too online.

    One simply must have some sense of judgment, or one will get poop, if unlucky.

    It is sad to think how many watches like this get "recycled" due to the attractiveness of more famous brand names.
