    I'm definitely not the expert on these, but I do notice that they aren't that far apart in price, only about $700 USD. One is a no reserve $0.99 auction and the other is a BIN/Best Offer offering. Seems a lot of people prefer the no reserve style as that type of auction let's the market set the price rather than the seller.

    I'm sure others will be by soon with comments about the actual watches though. Sit tight!

    The first one is definitely not all original. It has a later replacement dial and later second hand and probably replacement hour and minute hands.

    Both should have applied metal logo. Obviously only the 1 does.
