OK, last purchase for a while. Just won an eBay auction for $26.18. It includes a Lorus VX33-X066, which alone sells for at least that. The only $26 one I see in the sold history has a broken crystal. Anyway, I love mine and this one is for my brother. A Lorus Lumibrite Ana-digital and some sort of Timex weekender round out the lot.

Edit: I am also waiting for some Raketa 2609-HA movements so that I can get the correct movement in my big zero. These were ordered prior to the eBay listing above.

Aside from a ~$40 8926 for modding if that lands on black Friday, I do not foresee additional purchases. I am avoiding the deals thread.

I am so weak. What am I supposed to do when people keep using inaccurate descriptions in their postings? I deleted the eBay app from my phone.

Anyway, two Vostoks in need of movement servicing are on their way. Described as Komandirskes, one of them appears to be an Amphibia. Neither of these shows a lot of wear, which is pretty common on well loved Vostoks. Not sure of the age of these, but the dials look older than the current ones. Research needs to be done.

At any rate $20.50 and these are on their way to me.

Same. I've got an itch and even a little cash but am trying to wait till black Friday. Also I seem to have gotten really selective this month. I see a bunch of options but think nah, it's not worth it. Maybe the true light of WPAC is finally penetrating my HUISABH-armored skull. :lol:
