I'm in the process of educating myself about vintage watches - specifically very old English and European pocket watches.
A large part of my education involves browsing ebay auctons to get a feel for the variety of different watches and models.
There seems to be a large number of watches coming from sellers in Bulgaria and Eastern Europe. It is claimed many of these watches were awards for bravery or wartime heroics and come with medals and certificates.
Now perhaps I'm being overly cynical but it seems to me unlikely that these communist governments or dictatorships would fork out big cash on high grade Swiss and English watches.
Is this a really big obvious scam or are they legit?
