It may not be an issue for something like this Marine Star (which probably wasn't all that expensive even when it was new), but imagine if someone convinced that Breguet owner that his watch was only worth a few hundred ('cuase really, it's just an old cylinder, and doesn't even have a second hand!) At best, our reputation takes a hit, and at worst Ernie get slapped with a lawsuit.
    There is no legal reason for the 'no valuations' forum rule. The suit would go nowhere and would be expensive for the plaintiff -- suing a Dutch corporation in US courts (the most litigious country on Earth) when the corporation has no assets in the US is a recipe for failure. I suspect Ernie would not even have to file a response. But he has a common carrier defense that would provide immunity. (One could sue the poster, I suppose... but that too is probably another recipe for failure.)

    But your first point is a very good one. I have occasionally 'corrected' posts that I would otherwise ignore because it might provide misinformation to the casual searcher. Referring to civilian watches as military is a good example

    In other words (since noone has explicitly pointed it out so far): it is not a pocket watch. It doesn't keep time, it can only be used to stop time intervals.

    Oh yes, definitely a vintage timepice. I was not disputing that it belongs here, I was just helping put to rest the OP's voiced opinion in his title that it was a pocket watch.....
