    Just for fun..........Watchfinder

    Put in a request to see what my 16610 would realise with the stingy gits........................

    Anyone care to take a guess, full box and papers from Ď89í tritium dial and hands.
    Cheers,

    Ben

    £6k, not a demand piece for WF I'd say. Doombar seems like more fun to me.

    They want £8,350 for a 1998 with box but no papers.

    I guess the 16610 is a little small for modern tastes but definitely an under-appreciated classic IMHO.

    That would be nice but very unlikely.

    If you're really thinking of selling it let me know as it would be a birth year watch!

    Dammit! I knew they work on a ~30% markup and I would have been spot on looking at the prices of the ones they currently have for sale. Got suckered in thinking you had already been lowballed!

    Just had a "no bid" response from them for a 2 year old Tudor because I dont have proof of purchase - that didnt bother them a year ago with my SD43 so probably also down to them having more stock of the Tudor than the Rolex.

    That’s not bad from them. Obviously worth more though.

    Theyíve been honest with me when asked about certain stock and their price reflected that. Itís probably more hassle than itís worth checking the authenticity/ownership of something with a low mark-up.
