    Right place at the right time then, not bad.
    I thought you may have been in Pawn brokerage or something.
    It is just not the kind of stuff you expect to see, I guess there is a much bigger market regarding e-Bay in the states than there is here.
    I used to buy loads of watches from the States until e-Bay bought in the customs thing.
    It just isn't worth it now as most dealers won't bend the rules on customs declarations like they used to.
    I used to have quite a few American pieces original 50's Hamilton Pacer & Ventura, a few Elgin & Waltham pieces both wrist & pocket watches, but having to pay 20% on top of the final price is just not worth it.
    Enjoy those, it is always nice to see something different being looked after & appreciated.

    Mark.

    Mes excuses jeune homme..... I thought I read Bumper auto somewhere... thus my response... must be my old eyes, lack of meds or red wine that fooled me... very cool... I have a few Bulova mad bracelets on my desk right now.
    Super stylish......and a great story... still like that Hamilton though...

    NOS condition, it's been in a safe for YEARS, she said since the 60's. & the Vantage name is actually a Hamilton brand.

    It's not the Violence that sets a men apart.It's the distance he's prepared to go.
