WTF?



Item 191562083857 just went from US$46 to $US810!!



Hold on to those 27-jewel Bell-Matics folks! Soon they'll go for over $1000!

I don't understand this - unless he's bid it up himself....?

It's only in average condition, and it gains like mad.
oh well.

As an aside to my last post...
I own an almost identical 4006-7011 to the one above... except mine is a lot nicer.

I didn't pay much for it, Duncan (cannop) serviced it, and I like it a lot and wear it often. I have never fully understood why Bell's are not generally much loved? It does surprise me because they are great watches, especially the earlier versions. I guess it is because they are not a diver?

But something really doesn't look right about the high bid currently on this watch. I will watch it with interest.

Could be joker bidders. 2 bidders have taken it from $46. One only has a feedback of 46 and more worryingly has had 12 bid retractions in the last 6 months. The other has a feedback score of 3.
I had something similar a few months ago. Both bidders from the Far East, with little feedback bid up a watch that I was selling. After winning the auction I was not paid and did not hear from the winner. I expect the winner had their account suspended but they can easily open another.
