Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.
If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.
A few years ago that watch would have made a lot of money, but financial times have changed. I doubt that such tenuous provenance will support that price .... but who knows? It will be interesting to see if it sells
Yes indeed - I am going to monitor this one closely as a guage on the current state of our economy. So €100 would be about right, methinks
Oh, but wait - it has just been announced by the Government that an extra €3.8 billion!!! has been unearthed - a silly little accounting error is their spin on this "minor" matter. An error that a 12 year old could have pointed out to them has taken over a year to be "discovered." Will heads roll? No. Will anyone be blamed? Try the most minor just-out-of-college graduate in the dept. of finance. A wag of the finger to him. How about the extraordinarily well paid civil servant with responsibility in this area? No - he has shrugged it off as an "errors will happen you know" situation. How about the chief honcho, the minister himself? - ehm, no - just heard about it the previous day. Will it be of any benefit to Joe Average? - well that watch might just climb to €100 and one cent.
It's an astonishing price It just proves that even in times of huge economic depredation there are a privileged few who are protected from the realities of the world. It also demonstrates the old adage that he who wants to believe will believe
Any watch that has any link (genuine, tenuous or completely fabricated) with any of the following people:
W.B Yeats, GB Shaw, O Wilde, B Behan, S O'Casey,etc
100euro per watch no matter what state it is in. I wish to start a small modest collection
as a personal hobby!!!
