    Redialers need a new workflow tool ::facepalm1::

    At least check if the writing is at least better than a 3 yr old

    Yike! Note the description "The dial is likely a very good refinish from some time ago. Please refer to the photos". Which sounds like it will later be defensible when the buyer sees the watch in person. "I told it was a refinish, and to refer to the photos...."

    IMO, that is as good as will get from a description on eBay. Calling it good is, well, fairly bollocks, but at least it says that it has been refinished :)

    I remember them. We used to have them near the entry at each end of the block. We used to get a few and pin them right in the doorways of the other squadrons block late on pay night.

    They'd come home full as googs and blunder into our cunning traps.
    Nothing like flailing around in blowie covered sticky ribbons of tough fly paper to make them know who the better squadron was at ambushing!

    :D

    Given the limited buying history of the two most enthusiastic bidders, might one suppose that the seller has found some very helpful (and possibly related) friends to encourage the bidding?
