Find an add on ebay where history is even mentioned.

They are there very seldom.


None care--they are all whores and fast buck artists!


I disagree with both of you. There are a lot of collectors on the green board who aren't fast buck artists...collectors who never sell anything. All collectors are vein about their collections. Some are switchers because the simply care about individual watches. They want pretty. They want the best looking. They aren't vein about history and linage. They just want the best example from an aesthetic standpoint. They don't value history as much as jewelry.

There are however plenty of collectors on the greenboard who do care about history and who do their homework.

Listen, switchers are everywhere dealers, collectors, and the fraudulent collectors who are really interested in the BUCK--what are they? Dealers, speculators, fast buck artists, greedy, defrauders, liars, history revisionists, reamers and rammers??? Rolling Eyes Laughing

Buy virgin watches while you can--they are fast disappearing! Twisted Evil Evil or Very Mad
