Thank you. Read those, earlier. Read this, too, at the bottom of that case link:

Of course, there's the chance, in the largest watch forum in the world, that somebody might come along and recognize it by sight. Or, as I've been considering, that the right auction house might. I could still use a hand on identifying some of those, BTW. I know one thing, though, I can't open it. In fact, I'm not too sure I even want a watchmaker to try that, given how nice it's running. At least, for the immediate future, I think I'm going to continue to take my chances on somebody coming along and recognizing this big department store branded watch by sight, or, in the alternative, pointing me to a good auction house that might. No disrespect intended, there, of course, Erik. I know you folks are of the most use when you can see those works, that's understood.
