Two Pound Limit, But Not Yet


you have inside information, so no M&Ms for identifying the chronograph from the register I have shown. [ chuck -- you've also been tipped, so none for you either. ]

you might be able to earn some M&Ms (two pounds per chrono) by lending me a couple of your chronos with the refinished dials, to be photographed in the super macro setting.

we have explored the Oversized Fakes, then the ordinary fakes, maybe it's time to shine some light on the refinished dials, along with the other "R" words -- restored, retouched and repainted. I believe that this subject will be less controversial -- either it is or it isn't; it can be done very well or very poorly; some collectors are OK with them and some aren't; etc. [ why am I thinking that cosmetic surgery / breast augmentation may pose some of the same questions?? ]

as we continue to deal with the fakes, frankens, frauds, refinished, restored, repainted and retouched chronos, let's just remind ourselves to also stay focused on the genuine, original chronos -- we shouldn't forget about them!!
