Smoke 'em if you got 'em auction. With a twist.

Post by foghorn » April 30th 2018, 11:56am

I purchased this in the late 90's direct from Zippo in Bradford , Pa.
It got a new battery today and is runnng with the seconds hand stopping smartly on each marker. Approx 39 mm,100m W/R (not tested and borderline vintage so keep it dry for now) 7-jewel Swiss quartz movement, yada,yada,yada.
Creasing on the original band but certainly wearable to posh events. There is a small speck on the dial between the 7 and 8 towards the center. I have no clue what it is. Just a little full disclosure for all you loupers in the house. The case back shows signs of a couple sloppy encounters with a caseback wrench. NO box. No papers for this fine collectible. Flame at the "12" but not flame fusion.
Asking a 10.00 minimum just to cover USPS priority

As an extra incentive I will include a mystery gift should the bidding reach 50 bucks,American US dollars. The "incentive" is worth at least 4 times the 50 dollar bid which activates it. It is related to horology and will be easy to move if it doesn't move you. There's a chance you could actually make money if you decide to re-sell.


Open to CONUS shipping addresses only for this one. Auction will end Monday,5/7/18 at 7 PM EST

I was driven by bourbon and joking when I made that bid but a bid is a bid. Course I will honor it. Lick the back and your DNA will be there. On second thought, DONT!

I thought surely a Zippo collector would have jumped on it by now. (Come to think about it maybe Foggy was the zippo colector I was thinking of. :mrgreen: )
