Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Thanks for the kind thoughts both online and off.
I have no proof but I am comfortable in my perception of the events.
At the end of the day I will find another 2446, probably not quite as good of a deal.
Richard has already started to dig me one up. (many thanks)
As for the role of OTD, it probably was a factor. The intent of the posters was only noble.
Simply the pursuit of relevant information and a "way to go" or two.
If someone wants to take that information and do something unethical, so be it. I will not be involved.
I have been on the other side of the coin, and have been offered more money minutes after agreeing to
a sale. I simply emailed the buyer and said that there was an offer for $500 more, and I gave the buyer the
choice of a cheque for $500 and no watch or the watch at the agreed upon price. The individual took the watch.
I lost $500 but gained much more in terms of reputation from both parties who appreciated the way it was handled.
"Buy the seller" some guy said.
If anyone knows of a east coast US based lawyer that knows vintage watches and wants to have a little fun with the seller, let me know. ;-)
