    It now has a wanker's reserve of USD 4824, USD 400 (about the price of bracelet + endpieces) above the record price of USD 4424 established by the one discussed here two weeks ago http://omegaforums.net/threads/zenith-a385.6976/#post-84595.

    What luck that the bidder in July decided not to take it!
    :cautious:

    ....just outing another shill-using seller.

    I was outbid when it sold for $3800. Thought that price was crazy. Till I saw the new listing today.:thumbsdown:

    I guess we know why he uses private bidding and private feedback.

    $3800 was pretty stiff (I think you were right not to go that high, even before the shill part became clear), but not mad-hatter crazy. The price this time around is crazy.

    That's a twist - don't like the sales price, don't give the buyer the means to pay. GIGI, you didn't consider using Paypal? He would not have had a choice then - it's all automated.
