Re: Bonhams?
In Response To: Bonhams? ()

Hello Bernard

I fully agree that the usual auction house descriptions much too often miss out or even misrepresent. If you dig a little deeper on the Bonhams page for this lot and download and read the condition report though, you will - amongst more blablabla - also find the following statement regarding this watch:

"The dial, crown and bezel insert are service replacements".

No question: it is a shame that they bury this deep down inside where most people will not see/read it.



: Hi Guys,
: What is going on with the big auction houses?

: Am I missing something? Or is it normal they don't say it's
: completely wrong?
: As long as they don't say it's fully original it's ok or what?
: But they can mention the reference 105.003-65 and talk about the Ed
: White story???
: It's just one watch I looked at. Better not look at all the rest.

: Best,
: Bernard
