    Looks a bit cheesey, even for a Tag. I'm not convinced that its legitimate but it's 1:00 am here and I'm tired.

    I've spotted 3 so far, and they all have quartz movements. My advice is to run away from this one. Run away fast!
    Also, that movement looks like cheap Chinese ones you can get for $34.95 on Esslinger's site.

    Two ways to look at it; One is that the vendor is using shill bidding to hopefully generate some interest in watch he would desperately like to unload on some unsuspecting individual or, as PT Barnum was credited with saying..... "There is a sucker born every minute". I'll leave you to choose....
