    eBay seller: eantiquess. Anyone?

    Has a very interesting mix of watches for sale. 99.2% positive feedback. Catch is he is in Poland and I know that there is some franken stuff that comes out of areas of E. Europe. Nothing necessarily catches my eye at the moment but he/ she/ they have a great variety. I am collecting pre- '70, with numbers, sweeping seconds, and hand wound.

    99% is good...The Franken comment is true...Puts you on the seesaw for sure.
    Any watches posted may be seen as gifts,borrowed or found property and not as personal property of Little Big Feather.

    I agree, 99% is very good. Problem is that there are so many watches coming out of that area that never really existed. They look good and show proper amounts of wear and tear on the dials and movements. Just a risky proposition I guess.

    I think you will need to look carefully at the sellers pictures, ask lots of questions and know what the watch should look like before buying. That kind of research is important if you want to collect watches in original condition. Be aware that there are lots of collectors who buy and enjoy watches that have been created from unrelated parts. For example many of the so-called trench watches seen for sale on Ebay and elsewhere are modern eastern european creations.

    All true. I just like the older stuff. I am running serial numbers, researching cases, etc... just to make sure. The stuff that I have seen thus far seems legitimate, with the exception of some cases. They seem too good to be true but it is amazing what polishing paste and a buffing wheel can do.
