    Both listing where online for 5 days without a nibble, so in the end i got an offer and accepted. Slight loss but ok,

    Another instance where a dedicated F10 sales area would have been helpful for both the seller and potential buyer's.

    That would be really awesome.
    I occasionally visit the sales section looking only for Russian watches and it's a bit annoying to see everything else.
    The search function isn't perfect.

    Of these export brands, the kudo for shameless hoax gets to “Cornavin”, named after Geneva central RR station...

    Some such brands may be traced to Besançon (France) in the 80’s. There, “Poljot” was an export hub, based more or less on the remnants of French watchmakers’ collapse.
    Sad ending for Lip, btw — such an old yet innovative factory.

    The Cornavin brand is Swiss-owned and goes back to the 1920s. In the 1970s they started using Russian movement, sometimes in Hong Kong assembled watches and then built entirely in the USSR. More recently they have returned to Swiss made watches.

    Thank you for this explanation: so, not really a hoax, but a legit con act Which turns me away for good of anything so branded... Next time I buy Swiss cheese, I’ll check not only where the milk is from, but where they outsourced the holes!
