I have been looking around eBay for the past week or so, seeing if there are any gems to be had - and it would seem that there are as many gems as their are pieces of junk.
I do find it interesting and funny that almost every vintage watch is marked as "Rare" despite the fact that there may be 10 of them on auction at any one time.
I found a very rare 1940's (c) Chronograph that has a Landeron 48 movement - I think there were over 4 million of those made - does that really make it a rare find? I have to laugh a bit.
If everything is rare, then nothing is.
