That same stainless 7A38-7270, fitted with an incorrect replacement bracelet, (from eBay in June 2021) was listed on the Italian classified site Subito, in the early hours of yesterday morning, with the price now increased to €500 Euros !Seiko7A38 wrote: ↑Wed Jun 30, 2021 7:52 amI'm sick and tired (and no doubt wasting my breath) of bitching about speculative over-pricing, particularly by greedy Italian eBay sellers. But it makes me see red when they chuck an undisclosed non-original bracelet into the 'bargain'. This certainly not 'VERY RARE', but common-or-garden stainless 7A38-7270 was listed by one such in the early hours of this morning, as a 7-day auction with an opening bid price of 450 Euros !

The brief description translates as: For sale, all working and original in all its parts (which the bracelet certainly is not).
I'm not 100% sure whether it's the same Italian seller, but the previous eBay location of Arquà Polesine is in the province of Rovigo (per the current Subito listing). Plus 4 of his 5 photos are the same as were used in the eBay listing nearly two years ago, albeit now much reduced in size. The wrist shot (taken driving a BMW) is new.
