    Thank you...Same number of boxes and the same $38. a box.
    You would think they'd be smart enough to change it up a bit?

    Why change if it works? If this has been going on for 4+ years, it must be worth it to somebody.

    Is it me, or does that Chronocentric site have a bunch of scammers on it. I usually see watches way below asking price on there.

    Have always been suspicious of the site and doesn’t fill me with confidence when I visit it on a mobile browser I get a ‘Not Secure’ message...

    I really don't know why Jeff allows it to operate. It's his forum and his alone, I'd be embarrassed to be associated with it.

    Buying a watch on chronocentric is like finding a wife on Craigslist. It’s probably going to end poorly.

    16 years is a great power reserve. There must be regular servicing to get that. ;)

    In all fairness she found me.... she just didn’t realize I was a redial with non original service parts.
