Re: Discovered -- Source for Fake Silverstones

: Several weeks ago I received a nasty note from
: a reader in Argentina, demanding that I
: remove his photograph from the OnTheDash
: Gallery of Fakes. The fake in question was
: this very strange looking Silverstone - - -


: It was this nastygram that prompted the
: exchange with "Louis Brant" about
: the whole issue of copyright protection (??)
: or non-protection of these types of photos.

: Well, now look what we see listed on ebay, by a
: seller in Argentina: the legendary Mondia
: chronograph.



: Clearly this type of Mondia was the basis for
: the fake Silverstone. Is the fakery business
: getting so bad that now they are offering
: these pieces for $299, rather than turning
: them into fake Heuers?

I say Good work Jeff!!! Clearly the Heuer is a Fake. I like it in the other Brand.

I have the Elgins like these cases in Gold and S.S. but with the Cal 11s.
I hope we all can still voice when we see fakes. With out fear of attorneys!
Thanks; I think its a outrage the guy sends you a nasty note .
Take Care
