Re: A Great Light Has Gone Out - R.I.P. Helmut Sinn

We should leave Kobold out of this Sinn had nothing to do with Kobold watches co. at the end of his life. Never heard of any one getting screwed by Sinn. He had the love of watches that we all have here.

Re: Anyone sell on chrono24 versus eBay?

All I know there as bad as ebay selling fake watches and it's been reported and still there a good place to sell a fake and get away with it. I would be scared to buy a watch at chrono24 and get stuck with a fake I thought they were better than that. https://www.chrono24.co.uk/omega/seamaster-300-vi...

Down loading ring tones for the phone

I found this ring tone and was wondering if it would be safe to do so. So much stuff out there to infect your electronic devises out there. It's a Navy thing I looked up on the net for boatswain pipe ring tones since I use to do this on the bridge when passing the word on the 1MC the speaker system ...

I saw this on CBS Saturday morning show about some US Military Veterans starting a coffee company and they only hire veterans to work for them. So by buying coffee you support a vet the way I see it. So I bought a pound to try out. Will report back how good it is. I think forum members should also g...
