EBay Vintage Rolex watches
I have a fascination with watches (and with time travel, but we'll talk about that some other day). Old, vintage watches are something that I love, admire, and secretly covet. I have written previously about a vintage Rolex watch my Dad gave me, that I love. While someday I hoped to sell it here on eBay to perhaps pay for my kids college, it seems that is not to be.
While passing through the dreaded arms of the TSA on a flight back from Albuquerque where I went for Thanksgiving, I took it off before going through the x-ray machine. And it promptly disappeared.
So now when watches, especially Rolex watches, appear on eBay's most watched lists (no pun intended), I pay special attention to them, to see if by chance my lost watch is found again. While one of today's remarkable finds is a Roles, it is, alas, not the one I lost. But it is beautiful nonetheless.
Today's remarkable find is this :
The seller, who is from Kyoto, Japan, has this to say about this stunning piece of men's jewelry:
Sapphire crystal is in mint condition, no visual damages! The case and buckle have only a few tiny scratches and scuffs but no major ones!
Authentic Guarantee! ORIGINAL
It is automatic mechanical. All function works properly and it keeps excellent time.
The following items come with the watch:
Rolex outer and inner box, Rolex Tag, Rolex warranty paper and store receipt, cloth and etc...
(all you see is all you will get).
Case: Stainless Steel, case size: 40mm (diameter without the crown), 14mm (thickness), 300m water resistant, Stainless Steel Bezel
Band: Rolex SS bracelet and clasp, Max. wrist size up to 19.60cm (about 7.72 inches)."
My dad's watch also had a stainless steel band, which I thought odd, especially as I have seen Rolex's with platinum or gold bands. But this understated look, and the feel of the watch on the wrist make these true (and somewhat affordable) classics. With 94 bids, the watch's high bid is just over $4, 000.
