I have been watching this watch for months now!

It has been relisted about 3 times so far to my knowledge!

It's a fantastic looking Riseman and I have been tempted on many occasions, however the high postage puts me off!

EBAY LINK




I think for about £20-£30 less I'd of snapped it up!

I too reckon he should lower the starting price and £16 for first class recorded delivery:rodekaart.
probably costing a fortune in relisting fees :roll:
I've seen this auction relisted for at least 1 month and the seller has had the same description stating that the battery was changed 2 weeks ago LOL

If it doesn't sell it relists for free I think?

Good point about the battery lol

Lovely Riseman though, I'm hoping he'll crack and lower the shipping! Or make it best offer!

If an item doesn't sell and you relist it, your second listing fee is refunded only if it sells. I'm not sure what happens when you list something more than twice, I've never listed anything a third time.

This one has been relisted a few times...
I think that most people are put of by his low feedback...
Also, I got a USPA riseman from bbtiesto or puresoulhide (cant remember which) for much less than his starting bid, in a better condition.

Hi Stergios,

Triggered by the Riseman title?:-d Seems you had a good score on your UPSA. The only one I ever saw was around $200.-, so the price is reallistic I think.

How many Risemans do you have in the mean time already?

Hi Hoochy,

here a link of this watch from Risefreak (mr Yamazaru-San). I have seen this auction also before and was quiet tempted. The blue white combination is not whole my style I think. € 127.- is maybe also a bit on the high side ($175). I checked his feedback and the latest negative is more than one year old with many positives after it. I think he's trustable (shooting a message to the seller won't harm I guess).

Cheers,

Sjors

Hehe, been watching him relist it for months myself. You'd have thought by now he'd get the message and lower his start price and possibly his postage charges. Some people never learn :-d

It's a reasonable price for the watch but I just can't accept the idea that it costs £16 to cost! Fair enough bang on a high postage if your gonna let it go to auction but not on an already fairly high buy it now!

I agree with Sjors his feedback looks fine and Im sure it would make someone a nice piece.

LOL, I just checked it again and it hasn't sold!

I think he should take 'bape' out of the description. Whenever that word comes up in a search now it sets off subconscious alarm bells.

Lowering his starting price would encourage bids though, plus it may well go for the price he has it at now, maybe more. Postage costs just scream rip-off though, or at the very least fee avoidance.

Keyword spamming is an absolute crap trick!

Hey Sjors! :-!
Yes, I was triggered by the title.
I have about 15 risemen, with MIB and the Terje models twice..
I still miss one terje variation and a couple more... :)

A Terje Haakonsen signature version has just gone on ebay for £44 inc postage, I have seen this one on there a few times myself now but have not been tempted as I dont really like that particular G shock model for some reason.

Terje ftw \o/ i won that one :-!, awesome watch, though i marked the bezel already :oops:

I'd love the USPA one, but just can't bring myself to bid, if his postage were realistic and the starting price lower, he would get people bidding.

That is a nice watch, I liked the fact it has a resin band rather than the normal fabric, however it was whiter than white for my taste, hence no bids from me, it would be filthy in days on my wrist!!

I've just reported the item to eBay on that basis.

I sent a G-SHOCK, fully insured via Royal Mail Special Delivery on Saturday, and it cost less than a fiver. £16 is outrageous!
