An EXCELLENT Seller...and Friend

Postby Mortuus » Tue Nov 04, 2014 1:41 am

All of us at one time or another have bought and/or traded watches, some more than others. There are good deals and bad, sellers of treasure and sellers of junk. And some sell both treasure and junk with a depressing regularity. Still, the vast majority of non-commercial sellers -- guys and gals just trying to make a change to the collection -- are good people who sell good watches. Sometimes, though, you come across a seller who possesses truly excellent standards and sells nothing less than excellent watches. One such seller, who also happens to be my very good friend, resides both here and at Watchlords, where he's one of their founders.

I'm talking about Florida's own eddiea, who has sold me some amazing watches at equally amazing prices, so much so that I'd like to share some pictures of them with you, if you don't mind. I think you'll agree that each and every one of these watches exudes pure class and high quality...just like the gent who sold them to me.

And finally, my most recent "eddiea purchase," as I've come to call these transactions, a beautiful Fortis automatic chrono that I've been wearing for a few weeks, but had yet to share it with my Watchforums family. This watch really does represent the zenith in class and fine engineering, courtesy of my good friend and favorite seller...

If you ever have the opportunity to purchase a watch from Eddie, you will in no way be disappointed; his attention to detail in packing, shipping and communicating with his buyers is superb in all respects. And then there are the intangibles, that 'sense' that you're dealing with someone who knows the watch-biz in and out, has loved owning each and every watch he sells, and is genuinely excited for his buyers who, upon receiving these amazing pieces, are going to be thrilled with their purchases.

The best part, though, is knowing that you're dealing with a good friend, someone who's not trying to eke out a few bucks more to support an unrealistic -- at best -- return on investment. The above watches represent a goodly amount of money, but each and every one of them are worth more than I paid for them, and I've had zero buyer's remorse/guilt, which, given my Jewish and Catholic roots, is almost a miracle in and of itself.

As always, please accept my sincerest thanks for having a look at these truly amazing watches and, at the same time, almost certainly, embarrass my buddy, edds. This post really had two goals: (1) Pass along some very positive buying experiences, and; (2) Show off the beautiful watches I've been so lucky to acquire. I hope I've achieved both.

Again, many thanks for dropping by... 8) / :face:

Great watches Mort. Not much of a Sector fan, but the rest of them look great. Of course I love the Hamilton 3 hander. Not much of a chrono guy, but the Bullhead is a winner. I like the day/date windows on the Bullhead...unique. Another 3 hander, the Aquastar looks sharp on the brown strap. I like it, but you guys know how I feel about 3 handers :-) The Tissot on the mesh is my favorite of the bunch. Looks super. The Fortis looks great too...for a chrono ;-)

As for eddiea. Great guy. He has always taken the time to help me out when I come to him with my geekish questions.

So you're the one that ended up with the Tissot. Eddie is a great friend and is full of knowledge.
