100% natural leather – Colour: brown

Legendary, vintage THE BRIDGE bag/briefcase from 1985 - Entirely handmade with selected natural leather treated with water repellent (to be water resistant). It has 3 practical and spacious multi-purpose internal compartments with several leather pockets (for pens, business cards, mobile phone, documents etc.). In addition, it has an external multi-purpose compartment with zip fastening. The interior of the bag is in suede leather and The Bridge fabric lining, with 'THE BRIDGE' logo printed on the fabric. The bag has a lockable clasp with it's own key. The metal and leather parts all feature "The Bridge" logo printed in relief. This is a high quality artisan leathergood, not simply elegant. The bag is completely handmade by one of the most famous leather workshops in the world, that still makes its products according to the rules of the oldest and most noble Italian tradition. The brand "THE BRIDGE" (if you are not familiar with it) is remarkable. It is one of the most prestigious and exclusive Florentine, artisan leather goods producers. Since 1975 they have carried forth the tradition and quality of the "Made in Italy" label. The bag is clearly used with some signs of age (which give the bag a lovely vintage look). It is intact in all of its parts. It is a very robust bag with many beautiful details. Manufactured with great skill and care; superb leather and stitching. The model is no longer available on the market because it is out of production.

Measurements: 40 cm (length) x 30 cm (height) x 13 cm (depth)
Due to the intrinsic value of the item, it will be sent via insured mail with tracking.

    Both the amplifier and the cd were not working at all, even tough were announced in "condition very good plus".
    I sent two emails to the seller without any answer.
    I feel fully cheated.

    come si evince chiaramente dalle foto sia il sintoampliifcatore che il modulo compact disk della Marantz sono sono messi in funzione e ripresi mentre erano in esercizio (e quindi prima della spedizione erano perfetti al 100%). Dal momento che sono una persona scrupolosa e desidero che queste apparecchiature tecnologiche possano arrivare all'acquirente in condizioni perfette, ho utilizzato come imballo un costoso fly case in alluminio della marca CIAK VALIGERIA RONCATO (a mie spese e senza chiedere nulla a nessuno, costa più il fly case Ciak di quello che ha pagato l'acquirente in asta il compact Marantz) contenitore professionale da me adoperato per trasportare le mie apparecchiature tecnologiche. Aggiungo inoltre che sempre a mie spese (e senza chiedere niente all'acquirente) per maggiore tranquillità mia e dell'acquirente ho pagato io l'assicurazione del trasporto per l'importo che l'aquirente ha versato per l'acquiisto in asta. E questo l'acquirente ha il coraggio di chiamarlo inganno? Faccio una ipotesi, se per caso le apparecchiature fossero state danneggiate durante in trasporto, invito l'acquiirente a fare valere la polizza di assicurazione (che io ho pagato) onde sia risarcito all'acquirente per il danno. Concludo dicendo che dall'acquirente io non ho ricevuto nessuna mail (e neanche nessuna telefonata) nè tramite katawiki (come katawiki può ben confermare) nè direttamente alla mia casella di posta elettronica, se mi avesse contattato gli avrei risposto immediatamente (come sto facendo in questo momento).
    Disattiva traduzione istantanea
    as is clear from the pictures both the receiver and the compact disk module of the Marantz are put into operation and resumed while in operation (and so before the shipment were 100% perfect). Since I am a scrupulous person and I want these technological equipment to arrive at the buyer in perfect condition, I used to pack an expensive aluminum case of the brand CIAK VALIGERIA RONCATO (at my expense and without asking anything to anyone, it costs more the Ciak fly case of what paid the buyer to auction the compact Marantz) professional container I used to carry my technology equipment. I also add that at my own expense (and without asking for anything to the buyer) for more peace and my buyer I paid the transport insurance for the amount that the buyer paid for the auction. And is this the buyer having the courage to call it deception? I hypothesize that if the equipment was accidentally damaged during transport, I would ask the acquirer to apply for the insurance policy (which I paid) to be compensated by the buyer for the damage. I conclude by saying that from the buyer I did not receive any mail (or even any phone call) or through katawiki (as katawiki can confirm) or directly to my mailbox if he contacted me I would have responded immediately (as I am doing this moment).


    como se desprende de las imágenes tanto el receptor como el módulo de disco compacto del Marantz se ponen en funcionamiento y se reanudan mientras están en funcionamiento (y así antes de que el envío fuera 100% perfecto). Puesto que soy un concienzudo y deseo que estos equipos tecnológicos podría llegar al comprador en perfecto estado, he utilizado como embalaje de una caja de aluminio mosca caro de la marca CIAK RONCATO equipaje (por mi propia cuenta y sin pedir nada a nadie, más que cuesta el caso de Ciak fly de lo que pagó al comprador para subastar el compacto Marantz) contenedor profesional que solía llevar mi equipo de tecnología. También agrego que a mi propio costo (y sin pedir nada al comprador) por más paz y mi comprador pagué el seguro de transporte por la cantidad que el comprador pagó por la subasta. ¿Y es éste el comprador que tiene el valor de llamarla engaño? Hago una hipótesis, en caso de que el equipo había sido dañado durante las operaciones de transporte, la invitación acquiirente para tomar ventaja de la póliza de seguro (que he pagado) con el fin de ser compensado por los daños al comprador. Llego a la conclusión de que el comprador no he recibido ningún correo electrónico (o incluso sin teléfono) ni por katawiki (como katawiki bien puede confirmarse), ni directamente a mi bandeja de entrada, si se puso en contacto conmigo me tendría respondió inmediatamente (como yo estoy haciendo en la esta vez).

    Naar mijn mening zijn de foto's die bij het kavel stonden flink bewerkt t.o.v. de werkelijkheid. De tas is echter, hoewel wat minder mooi dan hij op de foto's leek, prachtig.

    Points of view. I've received from a few Katawiki buyers a diametrically different comment, that the bags you buy are actually much more beautiful in the real than in the photos. I'm not a professional photographer, so I think my photos do not improve the image of my auctioned bags, but they worsen their image. But respecting Mr Jorse's subjective point of view. I also told Mr Jorge that if he is not happy with the katawiki I am very happy to take back the Leather Bridge Bag and return the money spent (55 Euros). Mr. Jorge replied that he preferred to hold the Stock Exchange because he still liked it. I point out that on Katawiki I put on auction more than 25 high class leather handbags (including 10 The Bridge handbags) on average between 100 and 200 euros (much more than the one paid by Mr. Jorge). And all the buyers are said to be more than satisfied... I conclude by adding that I find contradictory that Mr. Jorge first tells me that the bag still likes it and wants to keep it and then he writes to me saying that the bag is not so beautiful so it would be right for me to make a big discount on the price giving the Sig Jorge of the money back because 50 euros for a leather bag The Bridge are so many. I like to point out that this is an auction I did not put the 50 euro sale bag I put in auction at 1 euro, Mr Jorge made his free offer.


    Punti di vista. Ho ricevuto da alcuni acquirenti di Katawiki un commento diametralmente diverso, cioè che le borse acquistate in realtà sono molto più belle nel reale che nelle foto. Io non sono un fotografo professionista, per cui ritengo che lei mie foto non migliorano l'immagine delle mie borse messe all'asta, semmai peggiorano la loro immagine. Ma rispetto il soggettivo punto di vista del Sig. Jorse. Ho anche detto al Sig. Jorge che se non è soddisfatto dell'acquiso su Katawiki io sono molto ben contento di riprendere indietro la Borsa The Bridge in pelle e restituire i soldi spesi (55 euro). Il Sig. Jorge mi ha risposto che preferisce tenersi la Borsa The Bridge perchè comunque gli piace. Faccio notare che quì su Katawiki ho messo in asta più di 25 borse in pelle di alta classe (tra cui 10 borse The Bridge) mediamente aggiudicate in asta tra i 100 e 200 euro (molto di più di quanto l'ha pagata il Sig. Jorge). E tutti gli acquirenti si son detti più che soddisfatti.
    Concludo aggiungendo che trovo contraddittorio che il Sig. Jorge prima mi dica che la borsa comunque gli piace e vuole tenerla e poi mi scriva dicendo che la borsa non è poi tanto bella e quindi sarebbe giusto che io facessi un forte sconto sul prezzo dando al Sig. Jorge dei soldi indietro perchè 50 euro per una borsa in pelle The Bridge sono tanti. Gradisco fare notare che questa è un'asta io non ho messo la borsa in vendita a 50 euro l'ho messa in asta a 1 euro, il Sig. Jorge ha fatto la sua libera offerta.
