My preferred ebay technique is to hang out on the bottom and wait for something edible to filter down to where I can grab it. Most often a big fish swoops in and swallows up my dinner just as it's within reach. The latest case:
A sweet little model 220 was hiding in a lot of three. No huge banners for No pics of the movement or stampings. Just the kind of watch that might go unnoticed long enough to be mine. In the last minute 6 bidders, 3 with red stars, jump on my meal The winner leaves chuckling about the $110 bargain they just got. I whimper and console myself by sending off the payment for my new $22 Thin Thin "27" B and $27 Sycamore.
