Thread: The Eddie's on ebay thread.

  1. #551
    One thing that could facilitate buying for the true fans is to announce the next opening of the webshop not via the normal mailing list but only on the forum, limiting the crowd to forum members only. A bit like rock bands giving their fanclubs a first access in ticket sales.
    I suggested this the other day, announce the opening in the bear pit, open midweek rather than a Sunday and limit the sales to a manageable number as normal. Gives forum members a better chance, still sell the same number of watches, no additional work for Eddie.

    Done twice a year it would help some who've been left out with a chance.

    I wouldn't pay it either. But for someone who wants one badly, and as its only available for a minute or so in the shop every few weeks the fact it's not sold out is immaterial.

    This has been listed a couple of times and always ends early, then gets relisted.

    I'd be interested to see what it would go for if the auction ran its full term.

    It's 100 above retail. I choose not to have a computer or tv. My choice. I do have a phone but not going to get one online via Timefactors. Again my choice, so whats 100 premium once in a while to avoid the Rolexesque feeding fenzy.

    That was basically my point. For someone who wants one but can't or won't join the Sunday melee it won't matter to them that it's not sold out, or that it's a ton over retail. I wouldn't pay it, but fully understand why someone would.

    For the record, this was offered on SC for 320, no takers, but I needed to move it on. It went on eBay for a starting price of 350 which, after their fees, brings me back to about my 320 which is all Im really after (bought a Hammy to replace the Smiths for 340 so trying to even the score on the two). If anyone wants to pay a bit more then fine, but Im not anticipating much as they arent going for big money on eBay anymore (despite some crazy asking prices) and ebays pound of flesh is ridiculous these days.

    Not suggesting you did anything wrong.

    I hadn't seen that you had it for sale on the forum last week as you have edited the thread title, so that is good to know. I had only seem that you tried to sell it last year for a little more than that.

    Best of luck, and honestly no need to delete the SC thread when putting it up on eBay, you can keep both (but it's usually a good idea to mention on the SC thread that you are listing on eBay at the same time).

    I saw someone get into some hassle on H&V due to having a watch on here and eBay at the same time. As there were no takers on here I figured it safer and easier to just have it for sale on one platform only. If I find myself in that scenario again I may do as you suggest.

    From the description this is hardly worn. Might help someone avoid the scrum this afternoon.

    No affiliation with seller.

    This is one of the nicest pieces Eddie has conceived, not a bad price considering retail

    But still worth making a best offer on if interested especially if they sell out today.

    Why do you think it the starting price? Its for 750 or best offer. Once offers less than 750 are made the buy now option disappears and it becomes an auction. Presumably the reserve is at the 750 mark if that was the buy now.

    There is no buy it now option other than having an offer accepted. 750 is the starting bid price.
