    I've been collecting watches for years, and have now gone in to business selling them with my partner who lives and works in Shenzhen.

    We are both prominent members on one of the top rep watch forums, and can and will respond to PMs on that board for verification. (My partner is the most famous manufacturer in this niche, reading the forum will show that to be true) We are also willing to message a few members from ebay to verify feedback on there as well.

    We have both rep and gen watches and parts, the parts being a highly profitable niche, being that they are all for and fit the genuine, vintage watch, which is the vintage daytona series, 6263, 6265, 6239, etc ( Yes, I know most of you are scratching your heads now but google it, you'll see what the aftermarket parts sell for).

    The list is extensive, but I can provide a price list for the watches and parts, which will also include the expected sale price to the end-consumer so interested parties can see for themselves what the profit margins are.

    We also have our own watch brands, one is based off the vintage daytona, and even fits genuine parts, and the other is a generic "flying tourbillon"

    The lowest priced, branded flying tourbillon on ebay right now is $799, and one that looks pretty similar to mine, and even has the same inside movement as my watch is $1499. I'm asking $530 to dropship this watch.

    My partner is also looking at the cect brand phones today, and also going to source some more popular selling watches. I'll be going there myself by July, and when I do, I will have everything available in Shenzhen.

    PM me for the price lists, and I will check on this thread frequently to answer questions.

    Ok,
    Here are some examples:
    Vintage Rolex Daytona 6239. A7750 hand wind (as per gen) Movement. All genuine parts fit this watch perfectly, except for the insides. The case dimensions and alignment are exact. This is the most accurate of this vintage model available, most have symmetrical pushers (which is wrong!) The thread for this watch on the watch forum is on fire. All dealers sell for $358 plus $30 EMS

    Dropship price is set at $299 plus $30 EMS for 1-5 pcs/week. $6-10 pcs/week, drop down to $289, and a discount on your 6th sale of $50 will be applied, with sales 7-10 only being $289. Sell for $350.

    The following are wholesale prices for small parts. I would rather sell these in lots directly to the sellers instead of dropshipping, but if you have a good idea, I'm all ears.
    So, here are my prices, and the selling prices on ebay. My description here would be a good search term to check on ebay with. There is only room for a few more people to sell this part, as it's a niche.

    6263/6265/6239 (search one or the other) hand set.
    5pcs $275 incl shipping = $55 per set. There is one set currently shipping from china via reg. airmail for $59. It will take a month to arrive in the US. Another for $95, from china, reg airmail again. From the US, $125 plus $15 shipping, so $140 total. Sell for $89 with free priority mail.

    6263 bezel.
    5pcs $205 incl shipping = $41 each. Only one on ebay, for $159. Thats pretty high though, I suggest $99 with free priority mail shipping.

    Much more coming, stay tuned.

    Hi everyone,

    Been busy with this, and stayed off for a while since I didn't want to saturate the market. I have a guy in the UK selling some parts, but I could use someone to sell some bigger parts still from the US.

    I have a few watches available, vintage models. Currently I have:
    Rolex Daytona 6263,6239,6265, and 6241.
    Rolex Submariner 1680
    Rolex GMT II Ceramic (New model, not vintage)

    I can find anything really, but I'm not in Shenzhen yet so my partner has to get it, and thats about a 12 hour time difference from me. Besides parts, I don't really have a list. If you are looking for something specific, just ask

    I've replied to PMs, sent a few, and skipped a few.

    My list of parts is extensive, simply receiving the list will likely leave you baffled and confused unless you already know vintage watches. I don't have time to teach right now, sorry. If you just want stuff to sell, and not pop in to this niche, I do have rep watches or can get them, but I don't have a list per se.
