    Default Recent sales on ebay

    Here are a few watches I have watched on ebay recently. If you want to see more photos of any particular item let me know.

    Arctos Bund 501.



    '85 issued CWC 321.



    Unusual Sturmanskie 85.



    Mk IIC Smiths clock (supposedly ex-Spitfire as they all are!) for 72. (Note the very interesting items in the background).



    One of many Elgin UDTs sold recently, which seems to have depressed the market. This one was 647 powered and sold for 807.



    This next one had a 539 and went for 526.



    Nice original "one family owned" Hanhart stopwatch 546.



    FL23235 Luftwaffe wrist compass 171 (not sure if this sold).



    Regards

    Jon'.

    There has been quite a few Hammy canteens latterly also. That 647-powered Elgin was a bargain! Glad I didn't see it as I can't afford even a bargain just now
    Cheers all, Colin

    Wish you hadn't said that, Colin - I left a half-hearted bid on it and to my surprise ended up the underbidder - I thought it would have sold for considerably more.

    It will be interesting to see what Dave and Pascal have to say about that cheap Arctos.

    Regards

    I say that mostly because I'm still unconvinced about the 539-powered Elgins. I haven't seen a convincing argument as to why that movement isn't a later replacement and not original, as I believe it to be and as Wesolowski writes.
    Cheers all, Colin

    That Arctos looks all fine and dandy - it probably was. I would say it was about 200 short of a normal price for the condition, but it was a very crummy listing - very few and poor photos (but enough to show thee was damage), no service, timekeeping or other information (and someone could blow 200 on a service), so not an entirely surprising price.

    If someone got a reputable service, a good Bund strap and a worthy camera, they might just break even on it.....

    If it's Lemania-powered, I'm interested. Tool Chrono - interested. Dive Chrono - interested. Interesting - interested
