At the time of writing, I'm still updating the continuation summary post of Martinachertok's multiple re-listings at the top of page 11.


Famous last words. :roll:

When I added my latest update to that much edited summary post, this morning, I got the error message warning me that I'd just exceeded the maximum number of 20,000 characters per post. Not a surprise, really. So this is the continuation of that summary.


The two-tone 7A38-7069 (missing its crown and stem)

This post was re-edited Ad Nauseam (from 27th March 2014 through 8th July 2014).


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


PS - Here's a slightly revised eBay search showing Martinachertok's ended listings for these two 7A38's for the last 15 days.

Note the results returned may lag up to 24 hours behind those shown in the above summary, due to delays in eBay indexing.

Here follows partial copy and pastes taken from my last two posts at the bottom of the previous page:

But the 76th re-listing for the ex-Worldwideweb66 two-tone 7A38-7270 goes one better - indeed, the whole hog - a 30-day listing ! 


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251465938867



Anybody like to lay odds on either of those two listings lasting the full duration ? 


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Meanwhile their 76th re-listing for the ex-Worldwideweb66 two-tone 7A38-7270 soldiers on, with some 22 days still remaining. 


PS - In case you thought I'd missed it, they increased the Buy-it-Now price from the already ludicrous $735 to $745 after 3 days. 


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Needless to say that listing was curtailed in their usual manner, almost a week before it was scheduled to end (on the 2nd April). :roll:


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251465938867



Lately in their mis-guided efforts to (re)sell their two grossly over-priced 7A38's, Martinachertok seems to have been experimenting with just about every different available length of listing period. One of the options they hadn't tried yet was a 5-day listing.

So, for their 77th re-listing of the ex-Worldwideweb66 two-tone 7A38-7270 that's exactly what they've done:


http://www.eBay.co.uk/itm/251487493101



The irony is that their latest 77th listing is scheduled to end a (full 24 hours) day before the previous 76th would have ended, had they let it run its course. On April 1st, funnily enough - April Fools Day. But who is the joke really on ? The Fools from Fogelsville !!

Well, after nearly 3 weeks of inactivity, it looks like Mad Martina Martinachertok is back with a vengeance once again. 

Previous re-listing for the ex-Worldwideweb66 7A38-7270 already ended early and replaced with the 78th - price increased to $795.


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251487886873



Edit: No sooner than I'd posted that, the manic re-listing madwoman Martinachertok re-listed it for a third (79th) time in 24 hours !! :o

It was re-listed in the early hours of this morning for 30 days (which I'm sure won't last either): http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251471633309




-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Sure enough, just like the 30-day listing for their ex-Worldwideweb66 7A38-7270 - it didn't. Overnight it was ended - 12 days early. :roll:


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251471633309



Re-listed for the 68th time, almost immediately, at the same ridiculous $395 Buy-it-Now price. See new summary at top of the page.

Indeed, it's just as well that I started a new summary at the top of this page - otherwise I'd have been a lot busier flicking back and forth to page 11 to update the old one.  Mad Martina is indeed back with a vengeance, living up to her well-earned nickname - going bonkers in her efforts to draw attention to her wares. Took me a few minutes to catch up with her overnight activity this morning. :roll:

She's now re-listed the ex-Worldwideweb66 7A38-7270 five times (as 5-day listings) in the last 24 hours. The mind boggles ! 


Craziest thing is: that some of these now ended re-listings received very few views because of the short times they were live:

The 77th - 18 views; the 78th - 6 views; the 79th - 5 views and the 80th - 10 views. I defy anybody to explain their logic.

Mad March may be over, but the April Fools from Fogelsville are still up to their old tricks. :roll:

86th re-listing for the ex-Worldwideweb66 7A38-7270, BIN price increased from $795 to $895. Nothing we've not seen before though.

After her spate of frenetic activity at the end of March, re-listing the ex-Worldwideweb66 7A38-7270 up to 5 times a day (the shortest lived listing lasted only 2 hours), I was a little surprised that her latest 87th re-listing had lasted over 3 days of the 5-day listing period. 

But then I just noticed that early this morning there had been another not-so-subtle change made to it:


http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItemRevisionDetails&item=251493400635



Yup, she's up to her old tricks again - the already ridiculous Buy-it-Now price has been increased from $895 to $995.

To the uninitiated (i.e. those readers who haven't followed this sorry saga from the very beginning) it might appear that manic re-listing madwoman Martinachertok is trying a new tack for the 72nd re-listing of her D-I-Y repair 7A38-7069, in dropping the Buy-it-Now price down from a ludicrous $395 to 'only' $135 overnight. 


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251496436076


But this is nothing new. May I refer you back to one of the previous summaries of their activities on Page 8, where between August and September last year, they reduced their Buy-it-Now price from it's then highest ever @ an absolutely ludicrous $490 (albeit in 2 stages) down to the same almost temptingly low price of $135.


May I also take the opportunity to remind any new readers what Martinachertok paid for this exact same watch - almost a year ago:


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261195882112


I note their current listing has one offer already. I trust that it's a suitably low low-ball. :/

I have come to the conclusion that there is absolutely no method (or logic) to the Martinachertok madness.

After another brief spate of manic re-listing of the ex-Worldwideweb66 two-tone 7A38-7270, earlier last week....

She then allowed their 74th re-listing for the D-I-Y repair 7A38-7069 to run the whole 7 days of the listing period !!

Three weeks (and 8 more re-listings) since they temptingly offered it at the 'bargain basement' price (not) of $135 at beginning of April

and Mad Martina's pie-in-the-sky B-I-N asking price for their D-I-Y repair 7A38-7069 has gone up in stages by a total of $300 to $435.

Manic re-listing Mad Martina Martinachertok's 80th re-listing for their D-I-Y repair 7A38-7069, at a mere $435, didn't last very long. :roll:

Overnight, it was replaced by the 81st @  $495 !!  :o


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261470169431


In fact this isn't a new record for crass stupidity (yet).

They briefly jacked this one up to the same price during their bout of price hiking madness around New Year - on their 49th re-listing.

Mad Martina Martinachertock must surely be expecting a visit from the 'nice young men in their clean white coats' to come knocking on her door any day soon now, because she's either over-dosed on the vodka, celebrating May Day - or completely lost the plot. 


Latest (82nd) re-listing, this afternoon, for their D-I-Y repair 7A38-7069 (for which they paid the princely sum of $41 over a year ago) has now reached an all-time high record for sheer greed and stupidity (for this particular 7A38) - even by their standards - $595 !

Perhaps she thought no-one would notice :roll: but earlier this afternoon Mad Martina Martinachertok increased the Buy-it-Now price on her 82nd re-listing for the D-I-Y repair 7A38-7069 once again ....


http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItemRevisionDetails&item=251522083745




.... to an absolutely hilarious  $695 !!!

I thought I'd just check on Mad Martina Martinachertok's eBay listings before I hit the sack.  BIG mistake ! 

This is the same 83rd re-listing for their D-I-Y repair 7A38-7069, the ludicrous $795 B-I-N asking price now increased to $895 !!!

I really cannot fathom what has possessed mad woman, Martinachertok. Overnight, she has again seen fit to hike the B-I-N price ....

.... of her 83rd re-listing for the D-I-Y repair 7A38-7069 by another $100 to an absolutely incredible record for stupidity - $995

You may have noticed that I hadn't written anything about Martinachertok's other grossly over-priced 7A38: the ex-Worldwideweb66 two-tone 7A38-7270 fiited (by him) with a non-original non-matching bracelet lately. Not for over a month - since 4th April. Well there really hasn't been anything (more) worth saying. She carried on re-listing it in her same erratic manner: sometimes 'new' every day; sometimes almost allowing the listings run their full (10-day) duration. There've been a dozen or more re-listings since - documented at the top of this page - all had been at the same stupid B-I-N price of $995 - 10 times what she'd paid for it.


Her 99th re-listing was due to end in the early hours of this morning and I was wondering if she might just let it run the full distance:




I honestly couldn't be bothered to stay up to wait to see.  As it turns out, it was ended early: a couple of hours before scheduled.

And so, we've reached another milestone: manic-relisting mad woman Martinachertok's 100th re-listing for her 7A38-7270. 

If anybody fancies winding her up (and getting blocked from bidding on her auctions for their trouble - those who haven't already been banned, that is), perhaps they might like to send her a cheeky eBay message congratulating her on her mis-guided failed efforts. :P


Obviously, because she's hiked the price of the D-I-Y repair 7A38-7069 to $995, the same as the 7A38-7270 was previously, with her next re-listing, she needed to redress the balance. (She'd paid $41 for the 7A38-7069 and $99 for this 7A38-7270, remember).


So I was a little surprised that she'd set the price of the 100th re-listing at 'only' $1100 (bearing in mind it's been as high as $1495).

But knowing mad Martina, I don't expect it'll stay that 'low' for very long.

Meanwhile, back at the Martinachertok madhouse, she's obviously got tired of hiking the already ludicrous prices in $100 increments.

I give you Martina's 84th re-listing for the D-I-Y repair 7A38-7069 - Yours for a mere $1995 (or best offer - which will be declined). :roll:

Overnight, the Russian mad woman Martinachertok has temporarily restored parity. At least in her warped mind anyway. :roll:


The 84th re-listing (@ $1995) for the D-I-Y repair 7A38-7069 was ended early, only to be replaced by the 85th - also @ $1995:

The 100th re-listing (@ $1100) for the ex-Worldwideweb66 7A38-7270 was superceded by her 101st - now a matching idiotic $1995:
