This 7A38-6010 in average worn condition, was listed late yesterday evening by a US eBay seller, with a laughably optimistic 'pie-in-the-sky' Buy-it-Now price of $350 - and currently no option to make an offer. It's being offered through eBay's dysfunctional GSP programme, which potentially adds another $125 to the price - for anyone daft enough to contemplate paying it. According to the seller's description it has an abnormally short bracelet - counting the number of links confirms that. :(

The US eBay seller of that 7A38-6010, with the abnormally short bracelet, ended their original listing early, at the end of June. Presumably the error was in the highly over-optimistic pricing. :roll:

They unsuccessfully re-listed it August, with the Buy-it-Now price reduced to $275 (item # 263872216830) and again earlier this month. It finally sold yesterday evening, but not for the reduced $275 Buy-it-Now price.

WatchCount.com's Look-up tool reveals it finally sold for an offer of $200.



As confirmed by the eBay Purchase History:


Presumably the buyer has girly sized wrists or a good supply of adjustment links.

This well-worn non-running 7A38-6010 was listed very late yesterday evening by a Dutch eBay seller, with a Buy-it-Now price of £99 or the option to make an offer. It's only remarkable for one thing - the condition of the SQ clasp. It's so much better than the rest of the watch, showing virtually no wear. It's obviously a replacement - in the correct finish and style, but evidently off something else. Note the inner part of the Z fold is stamped 'Z', whereas it should be stamped 'G' (from the bracelet's assembly part number G1157F). ;)

Another 7A38-6010, in average worn condition, was listed earlier this evening, by an Italian eBay seller, with a typically Italianate over-optimistic Buy-it-Now price of 380 Euros. I dunno about the seller's claim of  'ottime condizioni'. :roll: One of the first things I noticed, while flicking through his photos, was the horribly butchered case-back. :(

That well-worn, non-running 7A38-6010, listed by the Dutch eBay seller, two weeks ago, sold earlier in the week - but not for the £99 Buy-it-Now price.

WatchCount.com's Look-up tool reveals it sold for a best offer of £80.
