NAWCC National in York

I am thinking about going — it would be my first show!

Do I really need to bring wads of cash, or have folks at the conventions finally caught on to PayPal?

Re: Heads up for Ebay watch sellers...non paying bidder alert

If I get no reply I just cancel the order. Works out much better than waiting for a case to close. - Thanks for the advice!!! That's a great tip! Just know that if you close a case *without* permission from the buyer, you risk getting a seller "defect" on your account. Too many of those, and there ...

Reviving the dead horse just for the pleasure of beating it again. :P

More proof that the Chronomatics eventually came from the factory with bands instead of bracelets has been hiding here in our 1975 catalog all along:

Re: Post Your Mystery Hamiltons Here.

Hey everyone :) I have another one that I can't seem to figure out...I've narrowed it down to either an electric Everest II or an electric Vantage. However, the word "electric" is cursive on mine, and the photos I've seen of these watches aren't in cursive. Does anyone know which it is? Thanks so m...
