    As long as there are enough suckers to support them, these franken masters will keep slinging this schlock.

    At least he makes it clear it's a converted pocket watch, which is more than a lot of them do.

    Thing is he really doesn't, its one line and he sneaks it into the middle of a giant slab of text that people overlook while viewing the pictures, and in several other places he calls it "original" and a "wristwatch". That statement is purely there to get him out of paypal claims after people discover they paid good money for a dud

    Agreed & I don't condone it. People should read descriptions carefully & we all know that often they don't. But my point is that at least he actually says it somewhere, instead of not at all.

    ;) Yes there is a lot of caveat emptor to it.

    Half of them don't "sell" unless you count the shill outbidding the honest fools. You'd be surprised how many times one of these can "sell" and then be relisted, only to "sell" and be relisted, and again, and again. I watched member wandolec do this with a "RARE JAEGER LECOULTRE" that had a Chinese dragon dial at least 5 times.

    Here's how eBay treats them: ::money::

    In other words, the dial was ratshit and I threw it in the bin which is why it no longer has one
