    Does anyone know of a similar thread for vintage watches? I am aware that there are many more factors in watches, especially vintage, etc, etc, etc, caveat emptor, but surely there is somewhere a thread tracking eBay watch listings? I am specifically interested in vintage Omega, Longines and possibly Seiko. Thanks!

    SAB gladstone. Don't get too excited though - priced about right.

    You're not selling this, are you? [​IMG] (I know it's not your Ebay ID [​IMG] )It didn't get a bid at this price after you mentioned it in December.

    The canvas doesn't age as well as leather - marks are difficult to clean.

    Polo made in England cordovan PTB. Not marked as cordovan (and maybe they're not?) Strangely overpriced. Size 10.5.

    The seller's other listings are similarly ambitiously priced. Take, for example, this Bean zippered portfolio. I had one in the early '80s. I honestly think I paid $20 or less (new) for it. It's offered here for $150 OBO.

    I agree but sold at this price. Go figure.

    Looks like it was BIN though. Someone probably bought them because they thought they were shell.

    Actually, it looks like someone made an offer? The original BIN was over $300 and it sold for $185.95 with free shipping.

    Santoni suede boots size 10.5UK: 129.90 Euro BIN [​IMG] Might not be everybody's cup of tea. I bought my 3rd pair of Santoni boots today from this guy in Italy, each for about 100 euro. Shipping is a bit expensive, even in Europe. For the first 2 pairs I had combined shipment of 40 euro in total, arrived in Switzerland in 6 days. He's got a few other pairs not posted on ebay yet (he sent me an email with pics), his English is rather poor though.
