Perhaps we should start a 'Darwin Awards' thread in the eBay section, because this incompetent idiot evidently deserves one. If you're not familiar with this expression, which is common internet parlance for crass stupidity, I suggest you may want to check out: https://darwinawards.com


Yesterday morning, a UK eBay seller listed this well-worn 7A38-7180 as a 10-day auction with an opening bid price of £39.99 as 'Spares / Repair'. In their description, they have written: Missing right top button. Yes, in their photographs, something is definately missing from the 'top right' side of the watch, except it's not a (pusher) button, but the crown - which should be at the 8 o'clock position (i.e. bottom left). Yup, they've re-installed the dial / movement upside down in the watch case.

Little wonder it doesn't work any more !

This guy is truly unbelieveable !!! 


The following day (Monday evening), deluded US eBay seller sandersj85 re-listed his 7A38-7180 yet again ! This time as a 'Buy-it-Now' for 'only' $350 ! :roll:

The deluded US eBay seller sandersj85 subsequently reduced his 'pie-iin-the-sky' Buy-it-Now price twice in the following days, from $350 down to 'only' $260 (bearing in mind with the exception of his first blatantly obviously shilled auction, it had never legitimately been bid to anything like that figure).



In the early hours of this morning, he ended this latest re-listing (as he's done many times before) as item allegedly no longer available. Could this finally be the last we've seen of it ? :roll:

At the risk of repeating myself ....

This guy, US eBay seller sandersj85 is truly unbelieveable !! 

He re-listed his 7A38-7180 yet again at the weekend - reverting back to a 7-day $0.99 low-start auction with the previous ludicrous $650 Buy-it-Now option. :roll:

Needless to say, somebody else probably took great delight in placing an opening bid and killing the absolutely ludicrous Buy-it-Now option. At the time of writing, bidding has reached the dizzy heights of $11.50. :lol:

Meanwhile, back in the real world ....

The 10-day UK eBay auction for the well-worn non-running 7A38-7180 ended on Saturday morning, selling for £59 after 7 bids.
