    Bureau of Trade and vintage watches: too good to be true?

    I just discovered the Bureau of trade site which is kind of a shopping/ebay aggregator. From there i found a ebay listing for a JLC with a BIN $890. Here is the ad:

    SWISS JAEGER LE COULTR MILITARY WATCH WW2 CLOCK ORIGINAL BRANDED MOVEMENT | eBay

    I am wondering if it is too good to be true (it most likely is but you never know) and how do you like the listings that the Bureau of Trade offers. (URL: Timepieces » Bureau of Trade [free registration])

    I'd say the price is the way it is because its a converted pocket watch, If I'm correct, that price isn't that cheap for a vintage pocket-watch turned wristwatch. I'm still learning about the vintage market, so I may very well have just made a fool of myself, if I have, I'll refer to the old saying; "If its too good to be true, it probably is" Maybe a frankenstein, but the website seems pretty legit.

    Best,
