Re: Custom Ardmore

While I would be willing to have a non-rare case engraved, I think this price is too much. Gold is MUCH easier to engrave than stainless steel, and the same guys who charge half that to engrave a much larger Colt 1911 would charge less to do so to a gold watch case.

Re: Custom Ardmore

I would not do this on a rare watch. I have been debating with myself to have engraving done on the Seecamp that carry daily. Here is a photo of similar work done by someone else...not one I own, but similarly cool.

Re: Oval 14k hiding on eBay

Just so everyone knows, this watch NEVER sold for $305. The seller ended it early for a $1800 offer. Upon arrival to the buyer, when the back was opened it was gold filled, as expected. (YES, gold filled often acid-tests as solid gold even though it is not.) The seller supposedly knew how to run an ...

LOL, nope, here is a fast snap of mine without even a cloth polish. The fact it's wearing an old black strap confirms that I've never worn it. I need to fix that! I will and post a better photo.
