    No, not my memoirs. From my last sales post...

    But I wrote to Simon showing him this saying, OI! What have you left in my watch? I saw a black mark on a screw, but on magnification, it was my camera. (Sorry Simon).

    This prompted another member to post another photo from another sale of a naked seller in reflected in the pusher.

    Any other noteworthy watch reflections?

    I remember the kettle one, it was all over the papers and internet.

    Was there not a few follow ups after it?

    I remember a Lange collector on a forum years ago who would take photos of his reflective watches wearing nothing but his underwear. No I didn't save any photos...

    That's the first one that came to mind lol. That poor girl though - this photo went viral, unlike the others I think!

    There's a lot of debate around whether this reflection was accidental or intentional. "great shape," "not flat," "leave number," etc.

    Lol, dear watchknut I must ask, finest what?

    These are brilliant I hadn't seen them before. Don't want to see the kettle again

    Some time ago I made an SOTC (state of the collection) post on Reddit ... basically just showing off what you've bought or own in exchange for internet points. Someone was good enough to point out the clear reflection in some of the dials....

    Is this one of those Rorshach tests? I can see anything odd. Only a duck holding hands with a zebra

    I don't think this is a very clear 'crown reflection' of me when I took this 'post-STS service' picture earlier this year. No amusing or embarassing reflection to speak of. But, every time I look at it I remember Tony Coe, of 'Swiss Time Services' telling me...

    "These vintage parts are becoming very scarce, so if you need another one of these original, 1960's crowns in the future... there is a good chance there won't be any left." :(
