Hello everyone. I'm in the first day of the class, Adam really knows his stuff, having a great time. If you have the time and funds, you should really take this class, very eye opening.

I need to convert Adam to the other side though, I got to talk him into refinished dials, he is a purist at heart! :D

I highly recommend the course to everyone. Adam knows his stuff. I learned a ton.

If your a high end collector, you have to do this. It's amazing the fakes and how good they are. Once he teaches you what to look for, the job becomes easier.

Congrats on your class, it's wonderful.

I shared below with Mark and the class - an email I received from a participant of a large Pawn Shop in New York

QUOTE
On Friday 11-11-16 at appx. 6:50 pm. A man and woman entered the Store #4 wanting to pawn a ladies very new SS Rolex Ladies date just diamond bezel. They made a point of their desperation. The women cried , the man consoled her openly. They wanted to pawn it for 24 hours. We told him interest would be charged for 29 days. He said i don`t care. We took it back to open. There were , colored wheels good, pearling was good machining, but no balancing screws. We then XXXXXXX ------XXXXXXX (tip removed by Adam). Not a Rolex!


We think the seminar was money well spent.

Thank You

Patrick

Not quite
The actual pawn broker that bought the 2nd identical watch REFUSED to attend my course.

So far, NO one attending my course has bought a counterfeit/fake watch!!!!!

Truly glad you participated
