NEWS BULLETIN: The Beau Brummel "Big Watch" has been relisted with an opening bid reduced from $12,000 to only $9.999.00! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Reduced-RARE-I ... SwjM5aKfwX

Quick, put a snipe in, and you may be able to bag this beauty . . . if you're also willing to go to the St. Louis airport to pick it up! :lol:

This really is a lesson on how NOT to sell something...

"Reduced from $12,000 to $9,999
I DO NOT NEED TO SELL?
This came out of my personal collection!!"

I can't wait to see how many times this is relisted and how low it goes.

It always drives me nuts when someone has something nice in their possession and they are
clueless.
Find out what something is worth (YES there is a way on this one, don't ask)
Do an auction with a reserve if you are afraid.
LEARN TO SPELL.
Don't BS everyone by saying that you don't need to sell... you DO.
Don't come up with a price that is from Mars and keep relisting
lower and lower, you hurt the object and people think you
are pulling a fast one.

I am done.

ps... no one is going to an airport to pick something up with 12k in their hands, trust me.

Don't BS everyone by saying that you don't need to sell... you DO.
Notice, however, that his statement "I DO NOT NEED TO SELL? " is a question! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I expect we'll see further reductions. (It would be interesting to find out how much these rare clocks have actually gone for on the few occasions they've turned up -- and what the numbers on the Sangamo plates were.)

Expert sleuthing, Greg!

Well, as Buffard (the seller) says in the thread Greg posted, "You can never go up in price but you can always come down." (As he did.)

I see there's now a "Best Offer" option: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Reduced-RARE-I ... SwjM5aKfwX
But I'm sure what he's after is WAY out of my league! :roll:
