Vintage Orator Globemaster - very elegant running well

Please read carefully!

A lovlely and elegant Orator that is running well and keeping good time.There is some plate wear around the edge of the bezel, hardly noticeable on the wrist. All my watches are nicer than the harsh macro pics! I guarantee any watch I sell as genuine. Please look at my feedback and buy with total confidence. Please also check my other listings as I usually have an interesting selection of watches for sale. Please study the pictures closely as all watches are sold as seen.


Please bear in mind that you are buying a used watch and it is not new! Vintage timepieces often don't keep time in the way that a modern quartz does. I try to describe my watches honestly and take representative pictures - but I am only human! All watches are tested for 24hrs before they are listed, however, occasionally a vintage or even non-vintage watch can receive a shock or jolt in transit. This could affect timekeeping so a watch could require regulating again. This happens rarely, but please be aware of it. If I make a mistake please contact me before leaving feedback. I have the 100% rating for a reason - I always try to be as helpful and fair as I possible can be.

I am a collector, not a commercial dealer. My selling of watches is only to fund my horological

If you have an interesting watch please contact me.

Shipping - I don't try and make a profit on this. I just look to cover costs. For lower value items I send First Class Recorded Delivery, carefully bubble wrapped, in a suitable box or brand new jiffy bag. For higher value items I send by Royal Mail Special Delivery and fully insured. For overseas I use the most secure trackable method available - usually Royal Mail Airsure.


Please make sure you leave a rating of "5" on all detailed sellers ratings (DSRs) when you are leaving feedback. Ebay recently made changes to their feedback system where sellers can suffer SEVERE penalties if anything besides a "5" is left and you may be hurting your favorite sellers without knowing it. What are these penalties?
*Any rating below 4.9: Seller pays an additional 5% in fees to sell on ebay
*Any rating below 4.8: Seller pays an additional 10% in fees to sell on ebay, and seller's listings are demoted in ebay's search - making them harder to find
*Any rating below 4.6: Seller pays an additional 5% in fees to sell on ebay and loses powerseller status. Listings are further demoted in ebay's search
*Any rating below 4.3: Penalty -Seller's listings are moved the the last pages of search results
*Any rating below 4.1: Penalty - Seller is no longer allowed to list on ebay ( 1 rating )
eBay tells you a "4" rating means the item was accurately described, that you were satisfied with the seller's communication, the item was shipped quickly, and the shipping charges were reasonable - which a normal person would say is a good thing. However, ebay treats a "4" as a request to terminate the sellers's ebay account, charge the seller more, and make it difficult for bidders to find that seller's items. If you feel that the service you received does not warrant a "5" rating, PLEASE contact me so I can resolve any issues for you. Thanks!

I won't sell to Nigeria, Indonesia or any of the other normally barred countries. I have been on ebay for ten years and heard all the scams so please don't waste my time and I won't waste yours.

As always with a vintage watch, don't expect modern quartz levels of accuracy! But do expect a fascinating piece of engineering with soul!
