eBay Vintage Watches

About a year into my foray into buying classic Omegas on eBay, none of the watches are functional anymore.  I declare the experiment a failure.

eBay is good for good shoes: good shoes last a long time and can always be resoled or polished with commonly available tools.  eBay is perhaps not good for items, such as wristwatches, which contain a variety of complex, tiny moving parts and which require specialized expertise in order to repair.
