    I don't really sell on Ebay any more down to the fact mytime is taken up doing other methods but the other day I was bored and startedbrowsing. I came across something with real potential so wanted to share itwith you guys.

    Retro Casio watches are as popular as ever and so arereplica versions . Here are some examples of sale prices for replicas on the uk ebaysite, these happened only a few days ago.

    Not every watch will sell for as much as the examples abovebut as long as you have a good feedback rating and list them well you shouldeasily average around 8 pounds a watch.

    Now if we go check out these very same replica watches ondhgate for example (you could check aliexpress as well) look at the prices they go for:

    HTML:
    http://www.dhgate.com/product/50pcs-gold-and-silver-20pcs-f-91w-watches/181779802.html#s1-15-1|2495377447
    HTML:
    http://www.dhgate.com/product/wholesale-a159w-n1-metal-table-gold-silver/189581853.html#s1-2-1|440725893
    The sellers both have 100% feedback so we know they can betrusted and the price they are selling them for leaves a very healthy profitmargin
    Its not just the metal gold and silver versions of thiswatch that are popular. You can get rubber ones in many different colors. Hereis an example of the success someone is having with these colored ones:

    HTML:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RETRO-VINTAGE-STYLE-DIGITAL-F-91W-RUBBER-WATCH-/271510526500?pt=UK_Jewelery_Watches_Watches_MensWatches_GL&var=&hash=item3f3749da24#ht_545wt_1277
    The person has sold over 100 of these watches in under 10days at the time of me writing this. 501 feedback is pretty low compared to thebig hitters who have 5 figure scores but that doesn't seem to be affecting hissales much either.

    Now if we go back on dhgate you can see that these replica watches are selling extremely cheaply:

    HTML:
    http://www.dhgate.com/product/120pcs-for-women-men-child-f-91w-watches/129413436.html#s1-9-1|440725893]
    You may not make as much profit per watch as the silver and gold watches but this is still a very high demand item that can be sourced extremely cheaply.

    Anyway, hopefully this helps anyone looking to start making money on ebay. As I've shown you there is clearly potential here, you just need to act and make sure you cash in on this idea.

    This is like 3-4x potential profit, if you list them as fixed price you can probably get more. Thanks for the awesome share:ebay:

    Great find OP! Btw, you'd have a field day uncovering niches with Terapeak! (I use this to see what people are buying, with low comp).
