just bid on this and won as the only bidder tbh im most probably going to be out of pocket but it was worth a gamble. the receipt intrigued me but i think its totally unrelated!

obviously ones a kinetic of one type or another but can anyone tell what they are ?

I wouldn't get too excited. It's difficult to tell exactly what they are with the picture you've got, but it doesn't look too promising. God knows what the receipt relates too?

it's cool we've all done it one time or another, learning curve, I think it's called.
I hope you make cash on them anyhow.

Make a profit ???

Lol me either but box must be worth £15 (or maybe not) so makes each watch £18 so not exactly bust
If you paid $106.172 I think you can make a profit if you part them out . I know that I am always on the lookout for a 7T32 or 7Axx Circuit block if that's what you got . The parts for those are hard to come by .
Stay positive and Good Luck .

Pfft away with the lot of you leave me in peace with my box O' crap (well when it arrives) think I may stop wasting money and just buy watches I actually want! ;)

Every one in a while I will by a mystery box. One of those listing where you can see one or two interesting items on top and none of what's hiding underneath. I have made out really good several times. I once bought a box of what was described as scraps from a jewelers desk drawer. Even the picture was not that impressive but I won it for just under 20 bucks. It ended up being a grab bag of all sorts of good stuff. Everything from a pair of Dumount Swiss made tweezers (they run $25 dollars each) a small inexpensive crystal press a couple of good Seiko autowinder movements and even a Womans silver bracelet with small Emerald stones that just need a link repair. Gave it to Mom and she loves it. I hope you find a Rolex in there!

But only post pics if the Rolex says 'made in Japan' on the dial :)
