Thats great.
I am sure you will thoroughly enjoy the course.
Please note this course is modern luxury watches (although In do show a Hamilton rework dial), so no Hamilton, Elgin or vintage in this course.
That info is covered in "Time is Money"

Once again, thanks your interest and support and I look forward to meeting you face-to-face

I just got off the phone with the President of the NAWCC a moment ago.

I voiced my concerns about counterfeit watches being sold at NAWCC events.

Counterfeit, fake, replica: call it whatever you want but this is HIGHLY ILLEGAL.

He said that the FBI might have to be contacted if these folks continue selling counterfeit watches.

The FBI Fraud Division handles this type of activity.

He said that in the past FBI Agents have been invited to NAWCC Regional events for inspections and that this practice might have to be revisited.

I've been to 4 regionals so far this year and the national convention.

At every single show somebody or several dealers were selling counterfeit watches!

It does NOT matter if the seller is selling them as fakes.............it is AGAINST the LAW as it is trademark infringement.

So, if you want to keep on selling this crap at the shows you better have some bail money ready and a good lawyer, federal charges will soon follow.

The hammer is coming down!

The last NAWCC National that I attended was in York, PA.

The NAWCC let scrappers in to buy all forms of gold. People were selling their gold watches and jewelry to them at scrap value.

There was a huge pile of scrap on the table.

Some people were even buying 14K & 18K gold pocket watch cases back off of the scrapper that other NAWCC member s had sold them.

Does the NAWCC still allow scrappers at the show too?

Stan, we both know the FBI won't show up. It needs to be self policed. Those who violate need to get a written warning, then if violated again, need to be banned for one year, if caught again, lifetime ban from NAWCC shows.

The people running the shows need to take the stance, not the FBI.
