    I like it, although I believe you are not supposed to link to ebay or other auction sites here.

    The history of the Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show dates back to what year, when there was established the first Schweizer Mustermesse Basel (MUBA) with a special section devoted to watches and jewellery?

    That was my first reaction; then, I actually read the rule:

    "6 Linking to live auctions is permitted for discussion purposes only. . . ."

    I think this meets the "discussion purposes" exception.


    As for the watch: sadly, I don't understand Italian.

    I definitely would have the case refinished and would make my bid accordingly. I'm sure better examples pop up on eBay from time to time.

    You can try to translate with Babel Fish: http://babelfish.yahoo.com/

    Example:
    BALL OFFICIAL STANDARD, MILITARE VINTAGE, COME NUOVO! CASSA IN 10 Kt GOLD FILLED, FONDELLO A VITE E ANSE FISSE. QUADRANTE BIANCO CON NUMERAZIONE ARABA NERA. MOVIMENTO MECCANICO A CARICA MANUALE. SI RILASCIA FATTURA O RICEVUTA FISCALE.

    Translated:
    BALL OFFICIAL STANDARD, TO SUPPORT VINTAGE, LIKE NEW! CASE IN 10 Kt GOLD FILLED, SCREW BOTTOM AND FIXED HANDLES. QUADRANT WHITE MAN WITH BLACK ARABIC NUMERATION. MECHANICAL MOVEMENT TO MANUAL CHARGE. INVOICE OR FISCAL RECEIPT IS RELEASED.

    It's close...but some things get out of whack.

    Thanks Chris! I didn't even think of a translator.

    "Like new," eh? I wouldn't buy from that seller on principle alone.

    It might just be bad photo's, bad that case looks pretty worked over!!!!
    Because nothing says "you're a loser" more than owning a motivational poster about being a winner.

    Hmmmm.... interesting. That could be interpreted so broadly. Maybe they just don't want people promoting their sale items here via links, unless they put it in WUS FS forum?

    Anyway, thanks for pointing that out Rob.
