    No idea but G-Shock do a lot of fashion collabs so if you have any you might find it worth advertising those on relevant fashion sites.

    The Mastermind Japan, Maharishi ones sell for ridiculous money.

    I agree with Cranx.. ebay is the way to go. .if you need a lump sum asap, I would sell a few as a lot. But you'll probably get more if u sell individually.

    Well....ebay is going to charge you a listing fee and 25% of the sales price. Tack on the potential 3% that PayPal takes and you have spent a tiddy sum to sell a watch. I always try WUS first. It's free and you are reaching out to other enthusiasts. And watchrecon picks up on WUS listings, so you get double exposure. I've bought and sold a number of timepieces on WUS. Never had a problem yet.

    And as a side note, if you have any ICERC g-shocks, I would be interested :)

    Keep one or two watches as a remembrance of the good time you had with your collection.

    It is 10%. Still, the fees do add up from Ebay and Paypal. But regardless of where you sell them, you would almost certainly get more money overall if you sell them individually. Few people are going to want to buy a large lot of watches, and if they do they'll expect to get a really good deal because there are no doubt a number of models they wouldn't really want.

    Hi garybrads, nice neck of the woods you live in. Definitely sell individually to gain the best price. I have purchased from a member of this forum in the US and I would say it is a good way of connecting to a buyer who appreciates G Shock. I don't know what the terms are, but I'm sure you would reach large audience. Good luck mate.
