eBay newbie needs advice
There's a vintage watch on eBay that I've fallen for. It's an upscale Swiss brand, manual movement, silver (not sterling, but good quality)...and the starting bid is 99 cents!
Okay, so what's the scam? There are lots of watches going for 99 cents & up on ebay. How can a Swiss watch be priced for far less than a new, guaranteed-to-work Timex from the local drug store? I don't get it.
The seller doesn't state that the watch works or if it doesn't work. Still, it is so pretty that even if the watch doesn't work, I'd wear it as an interesting bracelet.
I've never bought anything on eBay before, so I don't have a feel for it at all.
Thanks for any & all comments.
