This past week was a good one. I walked away from two different auctions with some great merchandise! Merchandise that I am sure I will profit greatly from. So Let’s get right into it!
The first item I want to show you is a Leitz Leica Leicaflex 35mm camera mounted with a Leitz Leica Elmarit-R 90mm F2.8 Lens. Both Leica camera and lens are in minty condition!
The Leicaflex body shows little wear from very limited use. While the Leitz Leica Elmarit-R 90mm f2.8 lens is just gorgeous with perfect optics and a super smooth focus throw. Glass is clean and clear with no fungus, no haze and no scuffs or scratches.
A very small investment on this pair which should net when everything is said and done $600 to $700. I will of course be selling the body and lens in different listings.
Below are some photographs I captured for the listing of the Leicaflex 35mm Camera body. The Ebay listing itself can be found here if you would like to check it out.

Up next is a gorgeous Croton 128th Anniversary Automatic Chronograph which I picked up super cheap! In fact I’m not even going to tell you what the hammer price was on this one, you might fall of your chair!
This beautiful Croton Automatic Chronograph as I already mentioned was released in 2006 at just about $4000. It was limited to a 128 piece run, meaning there are only 128 of these watches in existence. The face of the watch contains 128 diamonds on the dial and bezel with a carbon fiber dial. I have watch #82 of 128.
Realistically I am thinking I could list this watch for $750 to $900 and make a sale within the next couple of months. I don’t really want to wait that long, so I am listing it at a super, super low asking price of $525. Hopefully someone jumps on this watch quickly, otherwise I may decide to keep this one for myself!
Up next is another watch, this one was not won at auction and was not purchased at an estate sale. I purchased this Bulova 1924 Miss America with gorgeous blue sapphires at a thrift shop in the area for about $2.00! Yes you read that correctly less than $2.00!
This watch is not in perfect condition and is missing it’s original band, though it should fetch at least $125 to $200 on Ebay. Which is very conservative and fair, seeings that this watch if in perfect condition with original band could easily sell for upward of $1000! This is one of the first and probably one of the most elegant of these Bulova watches Ive seen. It features 7 gorgeous blue sapphires and is finished in 14K white gold. Here is a link to my Ebay listing for the Bulova Miss America watch.
I also picked up a very nice, elegantly engraved Elgin 14k gold filled, 17 jewel pocket watch. It is a very ornate watch. If you have never seen the inside mechanics of a respectable pocket watch from the early 1900’s you better brace yourself! Each and every one of the watches is a work of art!
These are some photos I captured for my listing, you can find the actually listing for this Elgin pocket watch here.
Let’s take a look at one more pick! I picked this Salvador Dali Lithograph up at a yard sale. along with several other valuable photographs and lithographs. I paid very little for the entire lot of lithographs and photos, so I should make my money back with at least 100% profit in the sale of just this one, or any one of them for that matter.
Here are some photos of the Salvador Dali Litho as well as a link to the listing for this lithograph.
So there you have it! This is not by far all my picks for the past week or so, though these are some of the more notable picks of the week. I hope you enjoyed this entry.
