Re: His Words Were Clear / Enough of This, for Me

its funny.. i know he referenced heuer. . but when i heard this i thought for sure he was referring to the controversy about this 2913 FAP seamaster but had purposely switched the brands

and for what its worth, i do not think Phillips handled themselves particularly well in that situation but they were not the main culprit by a longshot

: I have watched this segment twice now, and his words were clear
: (though a bit confused on the details of the watch that he seems
: to be discussing . . . year of production, etc.).

: Still, there is a difference between a casual conversation
: (interview) and a detailed response to written interrogatories,
: so if he intended to address a broader, more general situation
: in the market, rather than this one watch, or even if he wants
: to recast his comments consistent with that intent, then I'm not
: really interested in spending much more time on it. There are
: more enjoyable things to do in this hobby than the forensics /
: investigations into inconsequential matters. People (even
: auction celebrities) can sometimes get things mixed up / messed
: up / garbled, under the bright lights of a live interview.
