I'm selling off the balance of my watch collection (18 watches listed below). I'm keeping the few that I wear regularly and getting rid of the rest.
Most of these have had very little time being worn (if they did, I would be willing to keep them) and are in excellent condition. Watches with bracelets have been sized for an 8.25-inch wrist, but in all cases the original extra links, if any, are included. All will have original boxes and papers except where noted.
The prices below are firm. If the watches don't sell here informally, I'll list them at higher prices in my eBay Store, where I've previously had great success selling watches from my collection. All prices include shipping to U.S. addresses. Payment by PayPal (no extra charge), USPS money order (immediate shipment) or check (watch held until check clears).
In each case the title is a link to online websites with the specs for the watch. I've also provided in-hand non-stock pics for each.
If you're interested, contact me through whichever message board brought you here or at email@example.com
P.S. Yes, I know my photography sucks.
Swiss ETA 2824. The best color combo of the 4 and the one that sold out first.
Model 3505. This one has become a bit of a rare bird. Selita SW200 movement. Box, but no papers.
Model 4728/LTMOP. Bracelet suffers from desk-diving rash. Box but no papers.
Model 0076. Dubbed the "poor man's venom".
Model 5015. Also getting tougher to find, especially with decent striations, and this dial is a gem!
Well-executed interchangeable system. Black leather strap has been worn. Orange leather strap has never been worn.
Well-executed interchangeable system. Black leather strap has been worn. Yellow leather strap has never been worn.
Blingey, yes. Cheap though.
Model 4369. Gorgeous watch and beefy too. If I can't get my asking price, I won't mind keeping it at all.
One of my favorite Sturhling executions, and in fact I went a bit nuts at the time, as I have all FIVE different color executions available:
The side-by-side comparison photo was taken before I got the fifth execution. Individual shots follow.
The wide expanse of MOP is what drew me to the watch.
Don't mistake this for the current crop of garish oversized tourbillons that Sturhling has been selling for $700-1,000 on ShopNBC. This is a VERY scarce watch, a much earlier flying tourbillon from Stuhrling. It's the second tourbillon model they did. Only 50 were produced, and they were originally sold on ShopNBC for over $4,000 (according to Jim Skelton; I wasn't watching ShopNBC back then, so I don't know if that was actually the case. I only have that and the used price at the above link for reference - they haven't had one in stock for years). It is a true dress size (40mm) and infinitely more tasteful than the current creations.
