Thanks to You, Neil, for Doing the Right Thing
In Response To: Caveat Emptor *PIC* ()

Let's all thank Neil, of Chronomaster UK, for deleting this watch from his listings. So many times, when we point out a problem (fake) to a seller, we start hearing that the piece is a "rare prototype" or limited production piece that was made for a specific customer or market.

Neil did the right thing -- after hearing that the pedigree was in doubt, he investigated further, and then pulled the listing. It even made me feel better when Neil sniped a Lemania from me a few days later . . . but that is another story for another day.

Thanks from all of us.

: it was a hotchpotch of bits. I have since

: have my money returned and he has a few

: Jeff for your awareness on this matter. Neil
