Good plan.

Hopefully it gets rid of the horrid little watch 'stealers' that exist.

I suspect like CC, it'll be the most expensive way of buying and will drive prices further up.

Harris is simply copying the numerous bloggers he regularly derides and jumping on the luxury/collectible, make a buck band wagon.
Probably realises he won’t be on TG for too long.
To be honest not a fan and haven’t watched TG for a decade.
Occasionally watch Demuro as same height as me, Catchpole, Bovingdion and Metcalfe, although he’s started bumming up Silverstone something rotten.
Don’t get the rest of the garbage and as for influencers! they make me walk on by rather than want to buy .
Watch them tumble.
On the subject of trade buyers/sellers on CC there are plenty, Zippy stands out as curiously only uses the one id.and bids on everything?
Amusingly traders buying from traders and of course the old I’m a trader but this is from my private collection. Yeah right!

Now Zippy has been ‘busted’ I’d laugh if he came back as Bungle before completing the whole Rainbow character range.

Hmmm not sure CC is the most expensive way of buying is it?
Yes the buyer pays the comm but i watch the site most days and apart from a few the all in sale price seems under dealer prices

Sorry, I'll clarify;

It's the most expensive way of buying privately, as in with no buyer protection. Yes cars routinely fetch below dealer prices but there is a certain amount of protection offered in that cost.

I wonder how collecting watches will get around shipping? At least with C24 there is the protection of the escrow system.

Ah yes now i see.

Yes buying blind too comes into the equation too but i guess you can raise issues on the day of collection. I paid once i'd inspected my car.


The world of watches as we know is full of crooks so they will need to be very aware of what they are getting into

I've tried to watch Demuro but I just can't get past the fact he's 3/4" taller than me. Totally ruins it for me.

Not to mention his excessive sweating.

That don't charge the seller a listing fee or sale commission ?

I’ve seen the rosso FF for sale on Collecting Cars and it is a very good example.

What do you mean? the colours worked well together or the condition? did you look at the paperwork? Thanks

I think this is a great idea, although I wonder how they will protect the buyer or prevent listing fakes etc. I got totally screwed on a rolex for my wife from a dealer that whilst legit on the outside was rammed full of after market tat inside.

I think its a good idea .. the buyer and seller get a good deal and cut out the dealer. Extending the format into watches makes perfect business sense.

So no fee for seller or buyer?
Didn’t realise that.
