.... I suppose I should mention this other example that was listed on the Italian free classified site, Subito, a week or so ago.

In case you hadn't noticed, that same gold-tone 7A38-7000 which was listed on back in April, was also listed on eBay last week - by presumably the same Italian seller using a different pseudonym. The two photos (now merged into one composite image) used are the same, anyway. The Buy-it-Now price has been reduced from his previous 'pie-in-the-sky' 190 Euros to 'only' 150 Euros.

It went unsold and was re-listed:

But then the seller ended the re-listing this morning, allegedly due to an error:

With apologies for the multiple quote carrying forward from the previous page. :P

The obvious error (in his most recent eBay listing at bottom) was in the pricing. :roll:

Late last night, Italian eBay seller degirpelle re-listed his gold-tone 7A38-7000 as a 10-day auction with an opening bid price of 10 Euros. He's only uploaded one composite image. As with his previous photos, the watch appears to be in overall pretty decent cosmetic condition. That is apart from what might be a sizeable ding on the side of the watch case near 3 o'clock. Difficult to tell from the photo. :/

I must admit I hadn't been watching that Italian auction for a gold-tone 7A38-7000 that closely. The seller ended the listing early, earlier this morning, because the item was no longer available. Presumably sold off eBay via the 'back door'. :/

Checking the bidding history (for cancellations), it appears it had been bid to just over 70 Euros, albeit possibly with the assistance of a Zero-feedback shill bidder.

No great surprise quite honestly, despite the seller stating earlier today it was 'no longer available' - transpires that his gold-tone 7A38-7000 is still not sold ! :lol:
The Italian eBay seller degirpelle re-listed it again this afternoon, but now with a 'pie-in-the-sky' Buy-it-Now price of 170 Euros. That's compared to his previous eBay Buy-it-Now listing @ 150 Euros that he ended early because of an error. :roll:
