    Default Fake News...

    I am seeing a constant thing at the moment and that is people who should know better keep posting pictures of 'Re dialed Watches'.... you can dismiss it as being the 'I know what you don't know' Police but hey these guys are big enough to influence what people think... written books, have great collections but just can't help themselves but post Insta pics of watches that are disingenuous....
    Saying like "well that isn't the point I was making" to me in DMs. or downright saying no all are correct..... it used to be called 'trolling' in terms of talk up a watch you bought but now realise you need to get rid of and want to get your money back....... how come no one calls these guys out any more?

    It means that multiple watches are 'caught and released' back into the market having been legitimised...? Makes me mad... here are a couple of examples... has anyone else seen this sad and annoying phenomena ?

    PS. The two below are not the ones I called out .....

    I know exactly what you are saying mate.
    I have thought for a long time, that now this hobby has gone mainstream there will be many watches that are total S H I T E being sold as rare & original in the not too distant future to unsuspecting people.
    The worst thing is as they get genuine patina as the years draw on, they will then be even more likely to garner acceptability.

    Mark.

    genuine? or pass the dial and hyandset over a smokey Joss stick... have you seen how many Asian 'real' Sport models there are with perfectly yellowed lume? Reminds me of a particular Military watch seller... hmmm
