    Here ya go. Wow. My guess is the wife said the watch needed to go. He tells her, "sure, I'll put it up for sale on ebay". He cleverly picks a price point which will ensure he gets to keep the watch, while practicing in the mirror "I tried honey, honest. guess no one's buying right now".

    I had to jump on this. I regretted not trying for the silver jubilee when it was first available and have been looking ever since. It seems a bit banged up, but nothing too bad. It just means it got some mileage before it reached me :) .

    Hopefully, this small dent in the bezel isn't a representation of far, more aggressive damage on the inside.

    Yeah, that's definitely a concern, but getting the watch maintenanced shouldn't be too difficult, if necessary. I know I won't be able to ask Eddie to service it since I'm not the original owner, but, if it does require it, replacing the Miyota 9039 shouldn't be too much of a hassle for any watch repair place that's worth a damn.

    Looks like 3 Everests all north of $1000 and a pile of make up sets.

    A bit of a random mish mash in my humble opinion.

    Just a thought, but as this eBay seller states he’d prefer to sell in SC but hasn’t achieved sufficient posts, would it be reasonable to allow him to reply here with a price which doesn’t include eBay fees, so that a deal could be achieved via PM?

    Might help the seller as well as a TZ forumite who doesn’t have the cat-like reflexes necessary to buy directly from Eddie?

    Exactly my thoughts. I would be happy to buy from a genuine seller.

    But then, the sales section has rules for a reason.

    Polished because it's been battered, look at all the pit mark's.

    Black Navigator just finished at 390, reserve not reached. The same seller has the cream dialled version finishing in about 12 minutes, currently on just over 200, reserve not reached either.

    That would have been a bargain! I dont remember to look at wtb that often, I should.
    I think if the vendor had pitched these a couple of hundred higher on buy it now's they'd have flown.

    The cream dial one finished at 475, past the reserve so its gone. He's put the black one back on, so guessing the reserve may be 400?
