What was probably the bargain buy of the year, at least in terms of Yema N8's, was listed briefly this morning by a US eBay seller - a N81X26, in almost new condition, on its original Yema tan leather strap, with a Buy-it-Now price of only $57. :o Even with the Global Shipping Program charges added on, for European buyers, that still works out at just a shade over $90.

By the time I read my email notification and saw the listing, it had already been sold.

WatchCount.com shows the listing was live for just under 3 hours, during which time it received only 16 views, before a canny buyer inevitably hit the Buy-it-Now button.



As confirmed by the eBay Purchase History:



If I'm not mistaken, the canny buyer appears to be our resident bargain hunter, forum member Jonas from Lithuania. Congratulations on the nice pick-up.

I was half expecting him to re-list it, but then this remarkably similar looking Yema N8 Flygraf, also in average worn condition, fitted with an aftermarket 2-piece nylon strap, was listed in the early hours of this morning, by 'another' Indonesian eBay seller irmairma1987 (oddly enough, also located in Depok, West Java), as a 5-day auction, with an opening bid price of $149.

That 5-day auction for a Yema N8 Flygraf, fitted with an aftermarket 2-piece nylon strap, re-listed by 'another' Indonesian eBay seller, ended in the early hours of this morning, selling for $151.50 after 2 bids.

This Yema Spationaute III, in average worn condition, fitted with a replacement leather strap and missing its 4 o'clock pusher button, was listed yesterday evening by an Italian eBay seller, as a 10-day auction, with an opening bid price of 1 Euro.

This Italian eBay seller is a blatant keyword spammer (I've seen him do this before), so I deliberately haven't copied over the last paragraph of his description. :roll:

Is it really worth bothering to mention (yet again) ?  Early this morning, deluded would-be French eBay seller rosangui78 ended his latest re-listing for his grossly over-priced Yema Spationaute III, now fitted with a NATO strap, as allegedly being no longer available.


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/223526655000


Needless to say, it was back on eBay again this afternoon, re-listed yet again - the 'pie-in-the-sky' Buy-it-Now price reduced to 'only' 760 Euros. :roll:


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/223545207256



Just for the record ....

The following day after he'd re-listed it for the nth time, deluded would-be French eBay seller rosangui78 reduced his 'pie-in-the-sky Buy-it-Now price from 760 Euros down to 'only' 699 Euros. Presumably there were still no takers. Yesterday evening he ended that latest re-listing, once again as allegedly item no longer available. :roll:


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/223545207256



With apologies. once again, for the double quote carried forward from the previous page. I'd overlooked to post an update on the long-running saga of deluded French eBay seller rosangui78 and his grossly over-priced Yema Spationaute III. He did of course re-list it yet again, as I'd expected - on 23rd July. This time he's reduced his 'pie-in-the-sky' Buy-it-Now price down from 699 Euros to 'only' 610 Euros. :roll:


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/223598266247



Time for another quarterly update on the seemingly never-ending saga of deluded French eBay seller rosangui78 and his risibly over-priced Yema Spationaute III. :roll:


He actually allowed that last previous re-listing to run for a full two months: from 23rd July to 23rd September, before ending it in his usual manner as allegedly being no longer available.


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/223598266247




He re-listed it again on 25th September, with his 'pie-in-the-sky' Buy-it-Now price quite dramatically reduced (by his standards) down to 'only' 540 Euros. I thought we might actually be progressing towards the realms of common sense, at last. :/


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/223680324490



He's obviously losing it all together, because he still hasn't ended that re-listing (it's still scheduled to end on 25th October), because this afternoon he re-listed it once again, with the price increased back up to 590 Euros !! :o


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/223705590045


Ah I see the difference now. He's not only changed the title around and tweaked his description once again, he's also added a few more new photos. Looks like he's also chucking in a cheap Commie watch - one of the blingier variants of Vostok Komandirskie and a CNES poster, in an effort to try and sweeten the deal. :roll:

The 10-day Italian eBay auction for a Yema Spationaute III, which was missing a pusher button, ended a few moments ago, selling for 90 Euros after 35 bids.

90€ was a decent price for a Spationaute III in this condition.
