Re: Rookie of the Year award for Greed and Stupidity ....

Surprisingly, MM has actually received a few positive feedbacks over the last couple of weeks, but that hasn't prevented his overall eBay feedback rating falling to 88% . Although he hasn't been banned, he almost appears to have abandoned his eBay account. Nothing new has been listed (or re-listed) ...

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

Checking my eBay watching page, I see that flobaca ended his latest 7-day re-listing for that well-worn 7A38-7069, fitted with a non-original replacement bracelet, late last night, because the item was no longer available. If he did manage to sell it off eBay, I can't believe he'd have got anything ...

Re: Would you pay $2000 for a one-off Franken Panda ?

Daisuke Shimizu 's latest 6-day re-listing (still retaining the same item number) is down another ¥30K to ¥348,000 Yen. But I can't help feeling there's still a very long way to go. rsz_7a38-6000-divers-stainless-franken-panda-600l-603l-splitdial-wrongbracelet-yahoojapan-feb2024-another-re-listing.j...

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

Here's another example in a similar vein. This gold-tone 7A38-7190, fitted with an incorrect replacement Seiko bracelet was listed yesterday evening by a dishonest US eBay seller. The ridiculous $600 Buy-it-Now price should be enough of a deterrent to even the most foolhardy mug punter. But you neve...

On Tuesday evening, he replaced it with another 7-day listing for a 7A38-7069, which he's also asking cheekily $300 for ! This one's best politely described as being in well worn condition. The bezel looks like it's been polished to remove the last remaining traces of gold plating and it's been fitt...

Just as I predicted in my previous post, profiteering US eBay re-seller flobaca listed that same 7A38-7069 yesterday evening as a 7-day auction with an opening bid price of $325. He's pitched it higher than usual, but then this one's in much nicer condition than some of his previous examples. Wheth...

Re: Heads Up on yet another 7A38 Franken(s) - Part 3 !!

This unusual '7A38', which is supposed to be a 'Mint New' / 'Eastern Market Only Product', was listed yesterday evening by a dishonest Italian eBay seller, with a Buy-it-Now price of €400 Euros. In reality it's nothing of the sort. It's a complete Franken. The case (including Roman numeral dial ring...

That rare two-tone 7A38-706A sold late last night for a reduced Buy-it-Now price of $175 Au. (equivalent approx. $114 USD / £90 GBP). The would-be profiteering re-seller ended up making a loss. https://www.ebay.co.uk/bin/purchaseHistory/355453833225 7A38-706A-Stainless+Gold-BlackFace-eBay-Feb2024-(R...

Re: Would you pay $2000 for a one-off Franken Panda ?

Daisuke Shimizu's 'limited offer' was supposed to end today (12th February). Indeed, his Yahoo Japan listing did briefly end about half an hour ago, not surprisingly without any bids placed. But I see he's now re-listed it for another 6 days, retaining the same YJ item number, with the price reduced...

Re: THE RAREST Seiko 7A38 re-surfaces Down Under !

That auction failed to attract a bid, despite having 20+ watchers. The Australian eBay re-seller re-listed it immediately as another 7-day auction, with the option for mug punters to Buy-it-Now for $300 Au. Fat chance of that happening. :roll: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Seiko-7A38-706A-SAA034J-Chron...
