    Who bought it

    Which one of you bought the Rolex Sub on Watchfinder, for $6.500? It sold within minutes of the posting.

    Misleading pic in the header image - that's a 116610 I think whereas the watch they sold was a 30 year old model

    If you bought it for $6500 would you flip it right away for say $9500?

    You can't, it's not worth that, it's an old model.

    Oh! I don't follow that market and I assumed a vintage has the same value and worth as a new model which would make $6500 a steal.

    70s ones maybe, don't think 90s is vintage enough yet. Funny old game isn't it.
