Somebody is going to be disappointed with some of the Seiko's from this seller , ebay item number 251685698281 for instance.
Awesome description there huh? I swear I can't for the life of me understand how these people survive and make sales on eBay. Are there than many dumb people out there buying going "oh look at the pretty watch!" I guess it is true a fool and his money are soon parted."beautiful seiko automatic gents watch (ref # k105),mint"
Well, the strap looks mint... :grin:
I agree with you in the fact that he is not really ripping people off with what he is selling. The prices are in line with what the product is. I guess I just think it would make more sense to add a little variety to your inventory. I mean he sells Seiko bracelets on his site but every single watch he lists looks exactly the same except for the dial? Maybe he is just in it for the money and it is just easier to do it the way he is doing it? I only sell a precious few of any of the watches I take the time to restore and I do my best to make the watch look the best it possible can and keep them as original as possible so to me to just do a "slam bang" job and then throw them up on eBay just doesn't fit my style.In Zak's defence. I have bought a few watches and bracelets from him and have spoken to him via Email and I think he is OK.
You must bear in mind how much you are paying for his watches, honestly what do you expect for £15, which is probably what the item will sell for or not much more. His pictures show the watch well enough, most listings have pictures of the caseback which is helpful for identification and the movement for condition.
This seller operates a low profit margin high turnover operation and when I looked at his stuff a few weeks ago he must have had a hundred cheap watches listed plus other stuff, I can understand why his descriptions are as they are and who can spend time and money providing perfect watches with a business model like this?
He is what he is, if you want an expensive perfect watch go elsewhere and if you are ignorant and only have £15 to spend, well you will get what you pay for and nothing else.
There is a certain country or 2 that id like to exclude in my search too.....
I would love to find the person who is responsible for starting the use of the word "minty" when selling item online and give him a swift kick in the family jewels! Ironically almost every add you come across with the word "minty" in the title description the item is typically a beat up piece of junk!Not sure about specific sellers but you exclude specific words as follows:
Seiko 6309 -mint -minty -rare -NOS -flawless
Excuse me, and than you to Russia is not pleased? Curiously simple.I also have had good luck buying from the home of many of our fellow forum members in Great Britain but when I see countries like Hungary Russia or the Middle East it dies make me whish eBay had a filter to exclude these countries. Anyone here have any countries that they can say from personal experience NOT to deal with.
Sorry for flooding. They have offended you or just a personal dislike? I am writing to what sellers hours from Russia, I do not know ...) If you know, share the link I'd like to see what they offer ...If what you are trying to ask is would I not buy from an eBay seller that is located in Russia the answer is definitely yes. As well as all of the other countries I mentioned.
