We can also turn around the points I made about the sellers not showing up, to ask the question -- Why would anyone sell a fairly common watch through one of these auctions? Who are the buyers that sell ordinary watches, through these auction houses? Maybe I can understand the super rare ones offered by Christie's and Phillips, that benefit the auction house's network of customers and from the worldwide promotion, but not these ordinary Autavias offered by WOK.
Reliable dealers, buy / sell / trade sites, and good old eBay all seem like better choices. Especially when we look at the results, the day after the auction.
