I bought a watch on ebay last night. Item # 170575415523, in case you would like to take a look. I bought it for looks, primarily and the works looked fine. Its a plain old Handsome steel Croton 17 j with a linen dial. I have nothing else like it in my collection and it aso reminded me of my father. He wore a solid gold Jaeger Lecoulte with a solid gold band (that looked like linen-I dont know what they are called) so why it reminded me of him, Im not exactly sure. Yes, I get the linen connection. Maybe I should say, men of his generation.But my real point is this: I look on WUS and google before the end date and I enter everything I can think of to tell me the quality of said watch. I have a notion that Croton is mid level good, but beyond that, nothing much. My searches really dont tell me about the quality of said watch or even of Croton in general. What resource does? It would be immense I guess but, it could be a brief description of all the major and minor brands. Am I doing something wrong in my searches? I hope to hear back something that might help in future. Thanks.
