There may be some interest in an inexpensive watch I use that was originally intended for use by the blind.  It is called the Eone Bradley Timepiece.  It has a titanium body and utilizes two captured ball bearings as a substitute for the conventional clock hands.350FABCB-654A-489A-B9A0-0AE6E2232F06.jpegB522E6D2-CE97-46E1-A082-9875B2E2003A.jpeg

I like it.

But I wouldn't describe it as inexpensive.

A clarification regarding price.  About $150 and up on eBay (less 15% if you wait eBay out on one of their code word for the day sales, which I like to do) and about $250 and up on Amazon.

Yeah, Amazon should be avoided if possible.

I while back I bought a Shure SM57 on Ebay, but it was a fake, so I got a refund and bought a genuine one from one of Shure's recommended stockists.

Then someone recommended a pair of Neumann mics. Cheapest on Amazon was £1,700 the pair, so I bookmarked them, in order to look again when I had won the Lotto.

Then a while later, I wondered if my Shure-recommended stockist sold them. Yep, £1,000 the pair! It will still need a Lotto win, but the price difference is interesting.

For books and CDs, I check both sites since it can go either way.  Amazon has a more sophisticated computer system IMO.  I like to purchase Knilling pegs from the Amazon Warehouse deals.  I found that once you put them in your cart, the price never continues down.

Absolutely - people always tell me to use Abebooks, but I find Amazon comes up trumps about 10 times as often as Abebooks.
