OK, this is gonna be a fast one for you stupid bastards. Here're the rules: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=39797 As with the other auctions, the proceeds for this one will go 75% to St. Jude Hospital, the rest for the upkeep of the forum. THIS AUCTION WILL RUN UNTIL 8:00PM PACIFIC TIME TONIGHT. Only one watch will be featured. So, here we go:

These older Zodie quartz chronos are going nuts lately on the secondary market. This one comes on an aftermarket tan distressed leather strap, plus a black one, both brand new. The donor informs me that there's a new battery inside. About 44mm wide cushion style case, 49mm with crown, 49mm lug to lug, 22mm lug width, 14.5mm thickness. Comes in a Nautica box, along with some fucking swag.

As I said above, this auction will end precisely at 8:00PM Pacific time tonight, so don't be fucking around. This is the first of several one-watch, flash auctions this week, which will keep me busy on my vacation and keep my tender, apple-like ass off the streets.

Bid now!

Some good opening bids, gentlemen!

As I said above, these slightly older quartz chronos from Zodie are selling for insane prices (considering that five years ago you could get them for under a hundred at various deal-a-day sites), viz:

I expect the bids for this one to rise dramatically.

Eight and a half hours to go.

Holy shit!!!
A quote from King Leonardo & His Short Subjects, a major favorite of mine when I was a tadpole!! I also ate Cripsy Critters cereal, for which King Leonardo was the spokes whatever!

Sniff. Holy shit. I couldn't have been older than four or five. Oh, man.
