Its a limited edition phill hill chronograph watch in which 55 was ever made so i wouldnt quite say it isnt worth the money but i respect you're opinion. My camera doesent do the watch justice.

It looks nice but is about 2500 euros more than what I would be willing to pay.

Its an interesting watch and a tribute to a truly great driver - but how do we know it isn't fake and/or stolen? After all, it wouldn't be the first time Ebay has been used to offload counterfeit or "hot" merchandise and watches are a favourite target for forgers, as Rolex are only too well aware.

Just because it's retailing at £2200 it doesn't make it worth that price ;)

An ugly, overly blingy watch. Not the sort of thing any normal person has any use for, or desire to own. I can think of a hell of a lot of better things to invest in.

I'm well aware that their are idiots out their that make it hard for legit sellers like me and millions of others but I can assure you that im selling for the greater good. I won the whole tournament for the Pirelli GP Challenge - see http://i.imgur.com/ZHUxX.png . This is my first sale on Ebay as I have used local websites before hand but seeing as this is a worldwide product I used the ebay system. Thanks for you're input but im just an avid fan of f1 like everyone else on here and would appreciate if it wasent subject to negative criticism when all im doing is showing viewers an f1 watch. Thanks for reading :)

I agree but being a young driver, I need to raise funds for insurance as in the UK car insurance is expensive!

Typical with people these days, they see something they can never afford or don't like and they instantly bash it as useless and crap, very mature.

If it's an orignal it's well worth the money, yes to some of us it's to expensive for us but that don't mean it's not worth the money just because we can't afford it or you don't like it personally.

Not sure there is any need to rag on it as some are. If you don't like it back out and say nothing.

I think you'd do better with one of the London auction houses that do specialist watch sales: Bonhams, Sotheby's or Christies for example. The commission will be higher than Ebay but I think you would be more likely to find a buyer and stand a much better chance of getting the money.

Meh, it's ultimately only a watch, not anything very personal.
If you feel you could do something better with the money you'd get from selling the prize rather than keeping it then I don't see the problem.

I've been keeping quiet so far on this thread, but please explain what you mean? Generally that sort of post is reserved for when members are about to get banned, and tends to be posted by me. If you think I've missed something, please don't hesitate to let me or another moderator know.

I personally checked out the links provided and although it's too much for me to spend at this time (it being Christmas and all), in any other circumstance I would have eyed it with high interest and may have even bidded on it.

The thread-sharting really brings this forum down sometimes.

Kudos to the OP for maintaining a level head and thanks for posting this. Otherwise I would not have known its existence.

Sorry didn't mean to sound like a douche, I just assumed it was one of those insanely expensive watches which I can never understand where the money goes?

Precious metals and sapphire glass im sure take up a fair amount of money. But the biggest reason is the rarity and meaning of the watch being the only American driver to win the championship.

I'm sure Mario Andretti would have something to say about that ;)

Nice watch, but over-priced. Then again, the most expensive watch I own is around £300.

Best of luck anyway!

Haha he was infact Italian born so technically not but he was registered as an American citizen so it all depends on how you look at matters :)

Both way out of my financial range unfortunately, but I really like the original red with a bit of white one. It works better for me than the ones you've got on eBay, but thats just me. The white ones are still really nice too, if I was fortunate in the money department, I'd bid!
