An EXCELLENT Seller...and Friend

Postby Mortuus no more » November 4th 2014, 1:30am

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 here at Watchlords, where he's one of our 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 Watchlords 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, embarrassing 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-)

You have to catch an Eddie sales listing pretty quickly, he sells nice watches at a good price and they move really fast. I have always been a day late on the deals. Love the Fortis and the old Hammy Mort, congrats.

Thanks, Mark! You're absolutely correct about Eddie's 'quicksilver listings'...

Very cool, in more ways than one.

Great watches and a great guy. eddiea kicks ass :-)
After all, no ham-wristed louts complained when all watches were 34mm - no cries of "looks like a little girl's watch on my wrist!" Like King Canute on the beach, that's where I draw the line - come what may.

Kudos to you, Mort, for the share.

Great additions. Had no idea Eddiea was selling that many.

I love the Hamilton and the Aquastar. I purchased the Fortis based upon a conversation in WL that
in which Eddea participated and I love it. Eddea is a good guy and apparently a great seller.
