As before, half the proceeds of this auction will go to Shriner's Hospitals for Children; the rest will go for upkeep for this forum and the new BDWF. Here are the rules, please read them: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=43368
Cool PO Homage
A nice automatic version of the Planet Ocean that looks really nice. The name on the caseback and dial is Paulareis, or something. One good point is the HE release valve appears to be welded on, so this is an improvement over the original Omega. The case measures 46mm, 49mm with crown, 51mm lug to lug, 15.5mm thick. The lug width is 22mm. Comes on a very nice stitched rubber strap. No box or papers.
Box 'O Watches & Straps
This is being a lot, all of these watches need batteries (in the case of the Vostok Scuba Dude, a service). Some of these arrived this way, others ran out since I've had them, and I haven't had time to buy batteries and crack 'em open, which I'm not very good at, anyway. These include some very well known TV brands (32 Degrees! Croton!!) as well as some other fine brands. If you want to get your loupe on, this is the way to go. (If any members have questions about particular items in this lot, please PM me or post here.)
Here's a pretty one, a Seiko Recraft, a throwback model fitted with a fine throwback movement, the 7S26! You want a big-ass Seiko without shelling out plenty of dough for a Marinemaster, this one is for you. 46mm across, 48mm with crown, 50.5mm lug-to-lug, 11.5mm thick. In true Seiko fashion, the lug width is 20mm. Comes on very nice gray leather strap that appears unused, along with original bracelet, box and papers.
Bulova Accutron Six-Eater
Here's a fine Bullie, with the same movement as you'd find in a Panerai Brooklyn Bridge--with probably the same level of decoration, too. Nice pressed dial, gold numericals, gold plated crown, sapphire crystal--this is a seriously nice watch. 42mm across, 46mm with crown, 49mm lug to lug, 12mm thick, 20mm lug width. Comes without box, papers or extra links--there's probably enough to fit up to a seven inch wrist, or you could throw the fucker onto a nice gator strap and still get plenty of trim.
So, that's the lot. This auction will end at 8:00PM Pacific time on Saturday, July 20. Bid early, bid often, and remember, these auctions benefit sick kids and the forums we love!
