I was browsing recently and found a clock I knew with a plate on the dial identifying the maker. I'm no fan of nameplates, they are far too easily added to anonymous clocks and often hard to prove one way or the other. This time though I know, and I must admit to being surprised to see such blatant fraud by a clock dealer. I suppose although I realised the risk with these nameplates I never really thought about who was doing the fraud. I've reported them to various authorities though I doubt much will happen. It should serve as a timely reminder, be careful with your money!
