Re: Yet another greedy German Profiteering eBay re-seller !

Not surprisingly, given the ludicrous asking price, the above stainless 7A38-7280 remains unsold. :| Profiteering German eBay re-seller m.a.k.2979 's latest over-priced offering has me scratching my head in bemusement. It's another 7A38-7280 - of sorts. :roll: It was once a gold-tone SAA124J, but so...

Re: Yet another greedy profiteering (UK) eBay seller to avoid !!

However, you may possibly understand my annoyance when I saw the very same Yema Spationaute III listed on eBay UK this afternoon by yet another would-be profiteering re-seller *urjewellery* (a.k.a. Jonathan Cox) with an extortionately marked-up Buy-it-Now price of £385 !! :x https://www.ebay.co.uk/i...

Yet another greedy profiteering (UK) eBay seller to avoid !!

The Yema Spationaute III Aragatz is one of my favourite non-Seiko branded 7A38's. https://hosting.photobucket.com/albums/aa373/Seiko7A38/Various%20Odds/Smilies/.highres/astro.gif I have far too many of them .... around two dozen of the 43mm version, including several NOS examples; a few with the lim...

Re: NOS 7A38-6000 SAA039J as an investment ? @ €4K ??

We have a new record for greed and stupidity by a keyword spamming Italian eBay seller. This morning, they listed a NOS 7A38-6000, which genuinely (for a change) appears to be a full set, complete with box, tags and manuals, with an eye-watering Buy-it-Now price of €5000 Euros .

Re: Yet another mis-represented non-original replacement bracelet

This 7A38-7010, listed yesterday evening by a dishonest Italian seller, as a 7-day auction with an opening bid of €299 Euros, is likely to catch out an unwary punter. The bracelet may be fitted with a 7-hole SQ clasp and bear an uncanny resemblance to the correct Seiko p/n Z1118S, but as can be seen...

Earlier this week, I caved in and bought my first '7A38' of 2024, from a UK eBay seller. It's a Puma Y19201-70 in gunmetal two-tone finish, with a white dial - a variation that was missing from my collection. I don't like paying dealer prices and had negotiated a small discount, but still paid 'over...

Re: Profiteering US eBay re-seller Flobaca strikes again !

As I'd predicted, profiteering US eBay seller flobaca listed that 7A38-7069 late last night as a 7-day auction with an opening bid price of $250. Doesn't look as if he's done anything to it (other than re-setting the chronograph hands). https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SEIKO-7A38-JAPAN***NICE-VINTAGE-FULL...

Re: Yet another profiteering (UK) eBay seller to avoid !!

He may have got lucky with that stainless 7A38-727A, but profiteering UK eBay re-seller hollizaak007 clearly has much to learn about the comparative values of less popular Seiko 7A38's. Was it really August 2021 when I wrote that about the gold-tone 7A38-7289 he'd just listed ? It seems that Gary T...

I suspect this gold-tone 7A38-7270 fitted with a non-original replacement Seiko bracelet will probably catch an unwary punter.

Re: Profiteering US eBay re-seller Flobaca strikes again !

I'm fairly confident in my prediction of what will very likely be flobaca' s next 7A38 offering - yet another 7A38-7069. The 7-day US eBay auction for a typically worn example, with dubious sounding minor faults, ended yesterday evening, selling for a mere $68 after 19 bids. https://www.ebay.co.uk/i...
