    There are a few watch-specific abbreviations (e.g. DON), but most are generic internet forum lingo (OP, etc.), and Google is helpful for the latter.

    Ok, not relevant to OF, but on Chronotrader - what the heck does *NM* mean?

    NM would be "near mint"

    Often meaning the watch is well used, but polished back (and beyond) its original condition :)

    Weird, because the scam catcher guy usually ends his titles with it.

    Also people will use it when sold... So I don't think any of those work

    No Message. Used at the end of a, hopefully, self explanatory post title. Saves the reader opening the post to find nothing more.
    Cheers.

    I would argue that "never mind" is abbriviated as NVM.

    And for clarity, NOS means that I am lying but would still appreciate selling my watch for a lot of profit.
