  • Seiko Arnie H558 5000

    I am considering selling my 558. Has anyone any idea what sort of money they sell for. I see the eBay asking prices but what do they really sell for. It's in great shape for its age. I've recently had it serviced.

    Hi Dean, have a look at the bay and filter the search for sold... plenty of examples in differing states of condition. Bear in mind the local market can be quite different, up or down. I don't have much experience selling on the bay and I've heard some real horror stories, but maybe some of the other members can chip in with their experience.

      You can also Google-search the model number, adding "forum" and "FS" for those sold through forum sales board. With both, you can use our TKNZ Watch Grading System (https://www.timekeeper.co.nz/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=971)to gauge their condition, yours, and relative prices that you can expect to get. Unfortunately, we can't offer valuations here, so those sources are your best bet.

          Head to watchrecon.com before eBay, that way you don't see the idiotic prices people try for. Unless you want to sell it on eBay. If you try to sell here or WUS you will need to know the actual value not the chancing bastard value

            And welcome. My opinion, don't sell it. Great watches and will be full on collectable in the future

                Thanks. Truth be known I still like it. So will probably hang on to it.

                  Very cool watches, and you got some very cool advice...

                  FWIW/JM2CW I agree with the above comments... tigermantis bought one of these about 8 years ago locally & paid $450.

                  His watch is in great condition, everything works, everything, the only detractors are that it is a watch head only and it has a split in the rehaut that crosses the display, which is in fact barely noticeable but it is there.

                  His has a sapphire, as the mineral was quite scratched and it has a very good insert, apart from the sapphire its genuine however he has the mineral in his Underwood I expect.

                  Using the search function... yep here is the H558 Arnie belonging to tiger mantis.. worth more that $450 8 years later I reckon

                      A black H558 recently sold on TM for 589.00 NZ. It was listed on eBay and reached 750.00NZ ( at last bid ). It seems tempting to list on eBay purely for a larger slice of the market.

                        Probably lost a bit on it - would have to pay eBay fees, PayPal fees, postage (although that is costed) then run the potential risk of a contrary seller and eBay / PayPal does not really support the seller.

                          Actually was a curious auction on eBay for the H558. I suspect the chap suspected he would buy cheap in NZ and reap rewards on the global market. Just goes to confirm the above comments about realistic prices vs online auction houses!

                          Sold for the opening bid of 530 USD. There was just a single bid placed. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Seiko-H5...8AAOSwSVRdKYnx

                          I see he also sold the Tudor North Flag with the aftermarket bracelet as well that has been knocking around on TM for a while.

                            Meant to say 750-850NZ. So the first bid held.
