Thread: Get Less for a Score

  1. #1

    Get Less for a Score

    For contestants in Der Amf's 'Get More for a Score' (or other hopeful scrapers of the bottom of eBay's horological barrel), this is the thread to post pics of the car crashes you find. The kind of watches that would garner a stunned silence from even the most polite commenter on a WRUW thread.

    Here's my first entry, a frankly horrific Pepsi branded G-Shock rip off

    Sounds like a good plan to gain some credibility from a total waste of money.

    Are we then obliged to bid or are we just going to poke fun?

    I bought an extra bag of 1lb M&Ms to get this bad boy for free at Duty Free....

    Not many watches have indicators for the 1/2 hours like this one.....
