    3 Private Labels from the same Jeweler

    This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite private labels. I bought my first in January, and have added two more in the time since-most recently at the NAWCC National yesterday.

    All are Illinois. The first is a Bunn Special grade, and the last(most recent) a Bunn grade.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
