The eBay Completed Auctions Method

eBay keeps a list of Completed Auctions that can be searched for similar watches.

PRO:   Accurately records of real transactions, and free to boot!
CON:   Requires a fair amount of knowledge to correctly interpret the auction descriptions, many of the older auctions will no longer have pictures and unless you can match match the keywords, you may not see all the relevant auctions. Searches only go back for 30 days and you can't search the descriptions, just the titles.
