    Does anyone know this web watch trader ?

    I seem to remember these people being mentioned on here before, but I can't remember the comments.
    They have a good selection of vintage watches, but the conditions all seem too good to be true. They make
    a big deal regarding the fact that they only buy pristine watches, but even 70 year old examples look newer than new
    and are invariably described as original.
    The comprehensive watch descriptions put Leo Tolstoy's 'War and Peace' to shame - yet they never mention the size of a watch ?
    That said, the prices seem reasonable.

    Vintage Watches including - Asprey, Breitling, Cartier,- Dunhill, Eterna, Girard-Perregaux, H. Moser, Harrods, Harwood, Hermes, Heuer, IWC, Jaeger LeCoultre, JW Benson, Longines, Mappin & Webb, Movado, Omega, Rolex, Tiffany & Co, Ulysse Nardin, Unive

    In particular

    Vintage Breitling Chronograph For Sale | Vintage Watches

    Would anyone care to comment ?

    This guy - Marcus Hardy, had the best!.
    That site has not been updated in 3 years. I got no idea why he leaves those watches for sale. They are either sold or never existed.

    He was my mentor, my friend and sold me my greatest pieces. Now he does not talk to me. Its weird

    Believe me it is.
    He was my friend and mentor. I miss him a lot.
    Especially I never understood why he refused to sell or talk to me again.

    I miss him and his watches a lot.

    That is the truth
