Re: Dear EBay Sellers:

Still one of the best places to buy watches, can't beat the place!! For sure! I am baffled by the seller who has no idea what the item he/she has.

Re: Just when you think you have seen it all...

I have my great grandfather's 10 size Hamilton pocket watch from the 1940s and would love to have the movement put into a wristwatch case. It's nothing fancy, and has just been sitting in a display case ever since my grandma gave it to me decades ago. It deserves to be used, but I have no idea wher...

Just when you think you have seen it all...

Roaming through the swamp when this one pops up... At first I thought, WOW, what the heck is this? Stars on the case and crown?
