41mm across, 46 with crown, 13.6mm thick. Swiss made automatic in very good condition. Comes on aftermarket steel bracelet that shows a lot of wear, also comes with Marathon rubber strap, with box. This very fine milspec watch was donated by noted collector who wishes to remain anonymous.

All righty then. Here're the rules: Auction to run for six days, ending on Saturday, 31 October, at 8:00PM Pacific time (Halloween!). High bid wins, no reserve. Proceeds to be donated to the Shriners Hospitals for Children: http://www.shrinershospitalsforchildren.org/. To bid, post in this thread, and please be clear which watch or bundle you're bidding on (example, Seiko, Bundle #1, Bundle #2, GSAR). Please add $5 to winning bid to cover postage. Feel free to yuck it up in this thread, break balls, bump, whathaveyou, but for the final hour of the auction please only post bids. Paypal only for payment, all sales are final. I will try to get all the watches out to winners via USPS Priority (insured in necessary) ASAP after payment is made, although my work schedule may delay this by a day or two. Shipping is CONUS, but overseas bidders are welcome, but PM me first as shipping will increase and we can agree to an upcharge.

Right, then. Bid early, bid often, and remember, it's for sick kids at Christmas!

Well, this is embarassing. I think I've donated the first selection of watches not to even get a sniff. Beaters, except for the Sieko, I realize. The Croton and SO are both pretty aged, but in good shape, almost like new. Mainly because I don't think I ever wore the trio more than a couple of times each. And yeah...I don't know what I was thinking when I picked up the Croton. I think it was a TJ Maxx yellow tag special.

I had sent conjurer some notes on these, which, I guess got lost in the sauce somewhere, no big whoop - but the Red Line, which was a gift from a relative, has an 8215 and it's really not a bad piece. Look at it this way - send in a few sheckles for sick kids, get one decent watch and two to gift to someone you hate. AND honestly, the Seiko is sharp ...and I honestly think it should be called "blue" and not green. It's all in how the light hits it. The strap on the Seiko is on the longish side and I was never able to get a comfortable fit, so I offered it here. It's also like new.

Just two cents in the hopes of raising a few bucks. :wink:

Thanks for the Natty Bumpos, guys!

The auction ends tonight at 8:00PM Pacific Time. The bids thus far:

svaglic, Bundle #1, $100

tiktok, GSAR, $200

Bigloaf, Seiko, $30

PM bidder, Bundle #2, $75

I'm assuming that there will be some Superhero, witch, zombie or otherwise Halloween-type snipers out there, because, while the bundles are pretty much at all their money, the GSAR and the very cool Seiko are cheap as chips, as the perfidious Angleterres say.

Remember, folks, all the proceeds go to help Shriners help kids like these:
