You don't need a thread....just look up pocket watches on etsy.

His claim that the watches are incredibly rare would be more credible if he wasn't selling two of them.

Well, all of my Bring a Brain threads cover that...
Then again, I don't think I have written any coverage of the eBay fleecers before.

One of my best eBay buys was a Longines from a vendor in Sofia.
As usual generalisations are just that.
One of my best buys was a pocket watch from a local pawn shop.....some people classify pawn shops as shady and crooked. As usual, all depends on the shop and being on your toes to know what you are getting.

Ha! Good thing I don't know your source since I already have a soft spot for (read: incurable addiction to) 6S Elgins. I have far more 7J and higher) klunkers than runners. :D
