Default So... who got it? $317 worth of Seiko silliness...

I thought it'd go for more, lots more. Huh. So, who got it? Thoughts on the content, anyone?

Seems like a pretty good price for the buyer to me. The few times I have seen bundles of watches auctioned; it seems to have depressed prices, especially parts/ parts watch bundles.

oh yeah, absolutely. Two watches that'd be $150 each on their own would probably only bring in $100 each or less when together.


It's a nice lot of watches though I notice the 6139 speedtimer has the wrong caseback, and frankly looks like a rework. I wonder if it really has the 21j under the hood... The other two are nice - best way to get an SKX009 with tags is this way.

The Speedtimer is an aftermarket dial and the caseback is probably the original from a 1977 watch, guarantee it has a 17J inside it. 6138 didn't look too bad though..

yeah, it does look nice. The 009 would be an added bonus. The 6139 screams AM rework hardcore, like it looks like a Thaigoodwill or Sophon job
