That's an "Arnold," alright... Many eBayers either don't know... don't care... or miss guess! much of the time...

HINT: Search for "Bulova Watch Ad" and use Firefox 3.5 or older (or change the .txt file to work with 3.6+) and download Firefox add- on "Abduction" to bypass eBay's new .png "no copy" moronics... and if you have Photoshop (?) then convert the .png file, to a .jpg and voila!

(Incidentally... I suspect you're under 30 and know how to do so already... but few my age (45 here soon) or older, have a clue..)

Haha.... 36 young. 

What I've been doing to bypass that is looking at the source info and it has the .jpg link right in there.  Just paste that into another tab/window and save as... no conversion needed.

Looks  to be the same...but again with the variant dial...note the 7.

Still it looks like a good match.

Did We just get spammed? lol ! Anyways O.T. (sortof) Firefox also has a 'web developer' toolbar, simply install then go to images, image info then 'save as'. : )
