Be careful with that seller. If you look carefully you will notice that they are posting many multiples of the same watches.

They have twice flooded the Hamilton section with tons of duplicate listings for Electrics — there is no way they have that many of these particular models available.

Not going anywhere near them, I don't have that much cash to waste.
I have a Black Knight anyway.

I might email them and ask what size of battery it takes.

I must confess I was all over these when they first appeared last week. The guy clearly knows nothing about vintage watches, and his prices are all over the place. I was able to purchase three electric watches and one automatic from my favorite "designer", Hamilton- a white dial Spectra, black dial Spectra, Regulus and a Sputnik, all for £1280 (about $1650). I think he then realized that some were priced a little too low, hence the much higher prices this time round. Now that they have arrived, they are all in great shape and good runners although one did need a new battery (it wasn't the Sputnik!)
