    Flea Market Patek Philippe

    Wow! A $300.000 Celestrial Grand Complications Patek Philippe for only $78.00. It looks cool and all and a rather unique knockoff from China. I'm impressed as it felt nice and heavy in the hand and the dial and case looked pretty fine in detail. I didn't buy, because I'm not really into fake watches all that much. I'll also post a pic of the movement I'm very sure you won't find inside of it.

    Yeah, it was labeled as a nice watch. Looking into these I found they're pretty pricey new. Still it's not for me and I'm thinking if you tried to sell it on eBay, they might just take it down.

    Are you Suuuuure its not real? haha You would be surprised how many do not get taken down on fleabay Its buyer beware. There are so many fakes on there it makes me crazy. I used to report them but 75% of the time they did not get taken down. You would be surprised by how many will drop a couple grand in the hopes one is real. Sucker born everyday I suppose

    I one problem with a watch that kept getting taken down on eBay. It was a Wittnauer that was a spitting image of a Catier tank. At first I was told I wasn't allowed to use the word "Tank" in my listing, as it was a copyright infringement. Then I put it up as a rectangle shape Wittnauer and with no explanation it was taken down again. So I took out rectangle and put classic style Wittnauer. I think it finally sold. I believe someone had an issue with it, by how similar it was to a Cartier tank. I believe it was made in the 70s and it had a manual wind 17J movement. It was the exact shape and size with Roman numerals and blue steel hands as a Cartier Tank had and it may have been put out of production by order of Cartier because of the similarities to the Cartier Tank watch. I should have kept that watch.

    I see a lot of fake Piaget watches too. I just bought this lot with one in it. Itís the sect from the bottom. In the pics The watch back makes it obviously a fake. BTW...Can you guess which watch I bought this lot for? Lol.... I told her to keep all but the one I wanted and just ship that one. Click image for larger version.

    If you guessed this one on the left you are right. I am not sure what it is but pontife hands are rare and I know Omega handsome in the 40ís as I have one. The case does not appear to be stainless which would rule out Omega but it was intriguing enough to take a chance. Click image for larger version.

    The period white gold bracelet is a great piece to get also. I have a few Bulova watches that needed this bracelet

    That was quite awhile ago when there were a few little self-proclaimed eBay police watching sellers. These days it's so overwhelming I think it's hard for them to keep up. Last time I got chastised was an ivory piece I tried to unload. eBay got on me about that with a kind warning that anymore attempts and I'll be shut down. Now all I can do is just collect vintage ivory pieces.
