I just bought a nice watch on eBay that I see was flipped from a Richard A. Olson auction in December. After
a little reading on their auction web site I see they charge 10%(buyers premium) on top of the final price plus shipping plus $3
handling. It looks like they have a wide range of watch auctions going on at the same time.
I have personally only used Jones Horan, eBay, and NAWCC events, and friends to buy watches from.
Anyone have any thoughts about them?

I haven't purchased from them, but a quick glance at some of the watches they've sold (makes I'm somewhat familiar with) show prices in line with what ordinary watches might bring on ebay. Didn't see any great rarities but my search was limited.
