I only ask this as a newbie in collecting, but I'd say for the last 4-5 watches I've looked at on the bay, all of them get bid out the wazoo. I mean we're talking everything from old Seikos to Hamiltons, Sicuras... you name it. There's no problem getting cheapie watches like Timexes and watches along those lines. But anything else it just seems to be insanely high. I was bidding on one watch and whoever was bidding against me was using "auto-bid". I probably got a little carried away- but it was a really cool watch- and was up to around $300 when it gave me yet another: " You have been outbid" message. At that point I said screw it and stopped. Again- probably a good thing. But seriously? I'm not poor or destitute, but from what I can tell you've seemingly got to have some deeeep pockets to be collecting these things. At least more than I care to spend. I guess you could call me bitter.
