  • The ebay glass mystery

    Long story short.
    2 watch cases for sale on ebay.
    I contact seller asking if theres glass in both cases.
    They say yes.
    I buy/win them.
    I get them.
    Only 1 has glass in it.
    I contact seller and we agree they give me half the money back when I return it to them.

    Ive just had a message from them telling me they have receievd the case and there IS glass in the case I sent back!!!

    How did glass magically appear in the case between me putting it in an envelope and it reaching his address!!!


    I replied saying(and being polite)it didnt have glass, if it had I would have kept it.

    The saga continues.

          Here is the persons reply.I cant work out of Im really angry or feel sorry for them.

          thanks for the quick reply.
          i will refund you half the selling price
          and will relist this watch case with better
          pictures and as having a near
          cristal clear bezel.
          It may just be to my benefit that you could not sea
          it.



          Please explain to me how I COULD NOT HAVE SEEN a glass bezel on a watch case that I wanted to have a glass bezel!!
          Why would I have returned it!!!
          I saw it easily on the other one which had glass.

            And logically, the first thing you did when discovering the absence of the glass is turn the envelope upsidedown, as any one would. You are best out of that one.

              The 2 watches were in a padded envelope, wrapped up tightly in one of those lose change bags.There was no glass when I got them, no glass when i returned it, but magically now, theres glass.
              Maybe its homing glass, it manages to find its way home easily.

                Maybe you have become blind to glass bezels..... except the one that you can see. Definitely the work of someone from Harry Potters world

                  Another possibility is that it was actually there but if it is that clean and clear it could be missed. Did you look or try and touch? I have done similar things with glass before so it is feasible.

                      Im the only person in my family that doesnt need to wear glasses.Thus I feel if there was any glass anywhere I would have seen it.
                      There was definately no glass in the bit where youd expect to find glass in a pocket watch.Its an item about 3cm in diameter, if it was hiding it did a blooming good job.
