    Confused Can someone please explain this to me? Glycines on Ebay.

    I've witnessed this phenomenon more than once and I can't understand it. We all know that prices on new Glycine Subs go up and down constantly, anywhere fro $300-$500 depending on the month and moon phase. Pre-Owned watches are another animal entirely, but you can usually scoop up a good deal around $300 or less. So why on earth would anyone spend north of $364.00 on a "mint" pre-owned Glycine Sub, when you can purchase the exact same watch, brand new from an authorized dealer, with full warranty for $359.00? The exact same watch! and it's listed just two positions down on Ebay! I've seen this over and over again and I just don't get it. Is it the drilled lug holes? I don't begrudge the seller making top dollar, good on ya! and he/she is going to get paid, but I just don't get the reasoning of the bidders.

    What am I missing here?

    Bidding frenzy. Pride; "I'm not gonna get outbid on this thing I'm bidding on!" Or just plain ignorance.

    Look at the higher prices for used books on Amazon...

    Because the person listing that watch probably paid upwards of $500 for that watch and is hoping a perspective buyer doesn’t shop on eBay, Amazon, Jomashop, Ashford etc... ???

    They are trying to minimize their losses. They did not keep up on prices that are available on many sites

    If I buy outside of the USA Ebay collects taxes from my country in advance. If I buy a used watch I don't pay taxes.

    Could've been a bidding war.

    Other factors can affect a high bid as well. Limited availability, unavailability, or prohibitive costs of the item in international markets (as mentioned), and what I call "consignment buyers" who are tasked by clients to purchase eBay items within a predetermined budget.

    Some people just don’t do their homework.
