Another well-worn 7A38-7070, fitted with a non-original generic replacement bracelet, was listed earlier this afternoon, by a French eBay seller, with a risible 'pie-in-the-sky' Buy-it-Now price of 454 Euros, or the option to make (a much lower) offer. Note also the discoloured dial and hands lume - never a good sign.

If at first you don't succeed ....

Try halving your ridiculous 'pie-in-the-sky' Buy-it-Now price. :lol:

That well-worn 7A38-7070 fitted with a non-original generic replacement bracelet finally sold this afternoon - not for the 50% reduced Buy-it-Now price, either. :roll:

As revealed by's Look-up tool it sold for an offer of 180 Euros:

I'd deliberately delayed posting the outcome of the above auction for a 7A38-7070, expecting the Lithuanian eBay seller would re-list it. It ended almost a week ago and he still hasn't. Bidding reached £127 after 12 bids, with the reserve price not met - so a somewhat inconclusive non-result. :/

Another 7A38-7070 was listed yesterday lunchtime, by a UK eBay seller, with an absolututely ludicrous 'pie-in-the-sky' Buy-it-Now price of £695 !!  If the stupid asking price isn't enough to put you off, this watch isn't in quite such 'perfect original condition' as the seller would have you believe. The watch case appears to have been polished (it looks particularly shiny in one of the side on views) - although the seller denies this in his description. I also strongly suspect that pristine-looking bezel insert is a Yobokies repro' replacement.
