    I wonder if sellers look at the WTB section at all....?

    Just curious...as a seller, do you ever peruse the WTB forum before listing your watch for sale? I just sold a watch and thought after, that I didn't take the time to see who may have wanted it, before I listed it. I will be sure to look at the WTB forum next time I sell!

    Mod edit: Oi! No WTB posts here!

    Nope, which is why I'm sometimes reluctant to post a WTB ad in the actual WTB section; I think I would have more success if we could do like Timezone and list FS and WTB on the same page.

    I wish they did often.

    It's weird sometimes. I'd post a WTB and bump it regularly for a week. Then I cave and decide to buy the watch somewhere else. All of a sudden, I receive PMs weeks later after I've already found what I'm looking for. :\

    The alternative to WTB is to use watchrecon daily to hunt down the watch you want. I posted one a while back and it took months until I finally got offered the watch I wanted.

    I don't sell there often but did happen to visit there one day and there was a WTB for a watch I was planning to sell and we quickly reached a deal. If you sell often, it probably is worth a look.

    Too messy and the sections here are too large to permit that. Besides we want sale prices with every sales post and you can't enforce that very well if you have WTB messages all over the place, This is not Timezone.

    When I've checked the WTB and sent PM's before posting I've never had a reply back. After doing it about a dozen times I've just determined if you list it they will come if they choose to.
