Lady and Tiger watch

#1 Post by mariwatch » Sat Feb 10, 2018 4:37 am

I have a lady and tiger watch I want to sell. It has a leather band, not original and it needs the glass replaced, other than that it is in fine condition.
Watch repairs people are hard to come by- I am in Pittsburgh. Should I replace glass and try to sell or would anyone be interested as is.

There would likely be buyers interested in your watch as is, but condition is important. There is a For Sale section on this website, you would need to post photos and come up with an asking price.

List it as is on ebay, any money you put into it you'll lose most likely.

There will be plenty of interest.

Never posted on a forum before so excuse my lack of knowledge on how this all works. I have a picture of the watch, can I post it on here?
I bought it with a different band, the one it came with is white gold or silver ( could also be another metal) and its marked Daintilex on the band
Does anyone know anything about the band?

If someone can advise me on how to post a picture I will. Never posted on Ebay either so that is a mystery to me.

Wrong dial, but it's possible someone here will have a correct one for you.

I have read about the difference in dials, does anyone have an example of what the correct dial would look like?
I have taken it to several places and no one ever mentioned the dial.

Here are some images from Google.

While some of these may be redials and have subtle variations, you will note that the dial should have a rectangular format, like the watch itself, not oval.
