Foreign buyers - If an item sells for more than
150.00, we will only mail it Express Mail, which is the only overseas option
with a tracking/delivery confirmation capability. This costs $35.00. This is not optional or negotiable. We don't like the
cost, but that's the cost. We do not make a dime on Express Mail shipping and
often times end up having to pay a little out of our pockets. Make sure you
consider that when bidding!!! If watches close for less than 150.00, we will
ship it 1st Class, at the $5.50 cost.
If you have less than 10 feedbacks - all positive, don't bid; we will cancel it. This
policy is the result of new ebay members failing to pay or respond after buying

Our regular customers are more important to us than
money. Do not ask if we will end an
item early. The fact is, if your offer is competitive and fair, you shouldn’t
be worried about winning the item at auction. The only incentive for making offers
is to cheat the seller and the other buyers who are willing to pay fair prices.
No exceptions. Our customers come 1st!!!!!
We will combine shipping
for items that close within 3 days of one another.
Ebay will automatically open an unpaid item claim after
4 days if payment has not been
We are not watch experts, watch makers, watch repair people, or fine jewelery
dealers. This is a hobby. We buy used watches at flea markets, estate sales,
garage sales, etc. That makes it clear that almost all our watches are
pre-owned, used, and worn. Our sole objective is to buy watches inexpensively
and sell them to someone who wants them inexpensively. We sell hundreds and
hundreds of watches. We have a few minutes to examine each one and list it. We
try to describe them accurately and be critical. The fact is, we sell thousands
of them and you buy one. You have hours to scrutinize the watch you bought and
you may very well find a flaw that we simply didn't notice. And we do miss
stuff sometimes. Furthermore, you may be an expert and once you get it,
identify a mechanical problem that we could not possibly recognize. Folks, we
start every watch at 3.99; whether it's a genuine Rolex, or a Timex. If we were
suggesting that a watch was flawless, perfect in a mechanical sense, and kept
precision time, we wouldn't list it for 3.99!!!! We list watches for 3.99 that
others sell with a minimum bid price of 1-2,000.00 dollars!!! Be realistic. If
a crystal has been replaced, we don't know that. If a gizmo isn't turning
correctly, we don't know that. If a quartz watch isn't running, we hope it's
just a battery, but we don't know that. In most cases, we don't have the tools
or experience to open them and even if we did, we wouldn't recognize any
problems that weren't blatantly obvious (like no movement inside)! Here's an example of our descriptive
methodology - We do not have the expertise, time or equipment to certify
any of our watches as to accuracy of time-keeping. If they are automatic and we
shake them and the hands go around, we say they run. If they are mechanical and
we wind them and the hands go around, we say they run. If they are battery
operated and the hands go around, we say they run!!!! That’s the best we can
do. If you want a guaranteed thousand-dollar precision time piece, you
shouldn't be bidding on a watch that starts at 3.99. Spend a thousand dollars
and get exactly what you want with a guarantee. But if you want a collectible
watch for a very fair price, or if you want a presentable watch to wear at a
very affordable price, or if you want a parts watch to play with or for parts
to fix a watch you have, you may very well get a terrific bargain here. And,
yes, we do sell some very valuable, very fine watches that are worth a lot of
money. Just understand that our depth of expertise is shallow. We do the best
we can. The only people that have lodged complaints about the watch they bought
are the people who do not read descriptions, do not use common sense and make
assumptions without any basis to do so. PLEASE ask questions, ask for better
pics, whatever you need and we are delighted to do the best we can for you.
And, if you aren't happy, just drop us a line and let's try to work it out. If
you clearly ignored the description narrative however, that's not our fault.
Generally, our watches are sold as-is. Obviously, we’ve made a ton of customers
very, very happy to date and we have a substantial, loyal following of
Please make sure, if you are outside the USA, that
Customs allows watches to be mailed to your country. Some nations prohibit this. I recently found this out
at the Post Office. If you’re prohibited from importing watches, they will not
pass your Customs and you will be out the money and the item.
Do not ask if we will end an item early. The fact is, if your offer is competitive and
fair, you shouldn’t be worried about
winning the item at auction. The only incentive for making offers is to cheat
the seller and the other buyers who are willing to pay fair prices. No exceptions.
