If this subject is not of interest you or feel it's much ado about nothing, I invite you to move on...
To those who care: The following comments on character are my opinion only, not stated fact, based on interaction with this individual.
Apparently, after doing a bit of web searching that pointed to a post I made a while back in WatchLords' Vintage Forum, Joel Blaeser contacted me via Private Message and initially seemed decent enough. He wrote his deceased father once owned the exact Caravelle model above and it was tragically stolen, never to be recovered. He asked me if I had any advice where he might find another and if mine was for sale.
Being a reasonably decent WIS citizen, I guided this stranger to a few online sources for vintage watches while flatly stating my example was not for sale. I purchased it for a chunk of change from the personal collection of a renowned watchmaker/collector of Electric and unusual watches. It's a name that everyone here would recognize but will be withheld to protect the person from potential Blaeser prison cell thuggery. For those into strange and unusual vintage watches -- I'm the only member here who is, I know -- this rarest of Caravelles in its current condition is quite a find. Most who've had personal interaction with me know over 20 years have been labored buying, selling and trading-up to acquire many Hamiltons, pre-1970 Accutrons, and Asymmetric/other odd watches that at a minimum are in Near Mint condition. Many like the Caravelle are NOS. These same gents here know I rarely, if ever, sell my final collection pieces. For those who haven't checked them out yet, I invite you to visit my Vintage Forum posts.
Blaeser possibly re-enacting what allegedly got him sent to prison? Did he hang-out at bowling alleys?
After several regular emails over the following few days from Blaeser nagging me to sell and containing monetary offers, I re-thought his heartfelt back story (now based on his alleged ex-con background, who knows if it's true) and decided to do something that was ill-advised: Offer it to him a price that I was willing to let it go at -- and it wasn't cheap. My thought was that he would likely decline and go away onto his search. Was I wrong. The thug instinct apparently learned in his early years and from girlfriends within the confines of his alleged cell walls went into full thrust.
Despite ignoring him, I was barraged daily, sometimes twice a day, with insulting and abusive emails accusing me of being a con and asshole, to suggesting I have low self-esteem because I'm overweight (sorry Blaeser, I'm a very fit racquet sports national champion). It got to the point that I had to reach out to my ISP to have his email address banned.
Most figured Blaeser was a FuckNut from his third or fourth post, so I appreciate allowing me to air this issue out a bit considering my apparent "lack of character" has now reached beyond the confines of this forum by the supposed spiritually evolved, Joel Blaeser. For a couple giggles, I have included a few messages I received from him below. It will give you a preview of the quality work we can anticipate in his upcoming Pulitzer Prize winning tome. And yes, they are pretty much in chronological order showing his Passive/Aggressive ways...
Do the rite thing, You got caught with your hand in the cookie jar, Make it rite,dont be a foolish asshole. Whatever you do in life comes back to you in direct proportion, (good and bad) you tried to get super greedy because you covet something, you don't have to sell me the watch, you've ruined that opportunity. Be good to someone in life, do it out of the blue, make up for what you tried to get away with. Your ego might be telling you all the bullshit you fed me,( its not true a base metal caravelle is not worth it box and all) if you really believe that, then maybe your 50lbs overweight and just a fat greedy slob, I don't know, if thats the case lose some weight and stop being so greedy. HAVE A WONDERFUL LIFE MATTEW.
(Matt's comment: this is a higher than usual quality Caravel automatic model made of all stainless steel and no base metal).
Please sell me that watch…...
Do you con people for a living??? You believe all the hype your spooing, I will help you lose all that weight for the watch.
THANK YOU FOR THE ADVICE AND LESSONS ON WATCHES AND LIFE, BUSINESS ETC. I APOLOGIZE FOR THE BAD BEHAVIOUR AND NAME CALLING. I WAS WRONG.
WHAT DO YOU SELL IN REAL LIFE? Watches? do you really believe all the BS your spouting about a Caravelle in a box????? It sounds like you truly believe all that bullshit thats spewing out of your hole.
I got a great weight loss program if you need it…...
Whats up, ready to re-consider,
COME BACK TO EARTH, STOP COVETING AND DO THE RITE THING.
Oh, Joel, sweetheart, maybe you should consider some of your own advice, you fucking spiritual phony. How dare you end that video with "namaste".
