    Intercontinental Pocket Watch?

    A student of mine is interested in watches, and recently told me of his desire to purchase a decent quality swiss-movement pocket watch for himself. He went to a local jeweler, who showed him an "Intercontinental" brand pocket watch. The price was close to $1,000. I had never heard of the brand. The seller had no printed materials or catalogues for the brand. I searched and found nothing except a faker who makes that "brand" and dozens of others. From the start, I told my student to be careful, and to ask for documents on the watch. The Jeweler told him the watch was swiss-made. I seriously doubt this seller is on the level. Has anyone heard of this maker.

    I want to go to this store and confront the owner about what he is selling. Holidays in two weeks. I'll report what he says.
