    Excuses for "Where did you buy that watch from?" Ideas?

    This is a different topic but obviously related to watches. I've been facing this embarrassing situation lately where I get asked "where did you buy this watch from?" I mostly collect vintages so I keep my local scavenging places as a secret to myself. I don't want to open up to anyone about flee markets or ebay either nor do I wanna tell anyone about my personal watch dealers. What would be the best answers or excuses to this question?

    Some guy I met who had it for years but didn't use it.

    Anyone who wants more than that is prying and should go find their own sources.

    This would be like a stranger asking me where I fish, I never tell anyone where I fish. That doesn't mean that someone won't find me someday on their own but they will have to do their own exploring to get there.

    I'd just tell them. Nobody I know gives a rats butt about watches so I wouldn't worry that "they might get there first". Even if they did care I'd tell them.

    Well it's a whole different case here. I run the local watch group here so get this question quite often

    ‘What are you looking for? I only charge a flat finders fee of 250/500/1000(insert currency here) or 30%, whichever is the greater, plus expenses. I’ll be glad to help you!’

    That usually works. Or you get paid for some fun

    I'd probably give the same answer that I give to almost every, "Where'd you buy ______?"

    "Internet."

    Some crackhead. They probably won't seek him out.

    Man, I'm doing this hobby all wrong. I didn't know it was competitive.
