This guy sure does have it out for Charles de Gaulle though,. That's a lot of work.

updated link as the original was removed at wordpress. Have invited the author to join the forum but Smells would have an easier time with that as both are members of the Rolex forum.

Also at the scottishwatches blog.

The lexic.co link doesn't work for me, on any device. Wonder why.

Going through the thread on TRF, linked to at Scottish Watches, it looks like Oberfeldwebel Bo from WUS is implicated in that stuff somehow. That doesn't surprise me in the slightest. His posts in that thread made me laugh. It's funny how the guy tries to play a bully at a forum where he's a zero.

Doc Vail got mentioned, too.
My little brain can't even comprehend how deep that is.

I have heard the name, but I've no idea who that is.

This is one of the most impressive threads of watch sleuthing I've ever read. Amazing, unrelenting, determined. Outstanding, too. I mean, it just never lets up.

Fantastic, on only about four different levels. It reminds me of the digging a handful of us did here during the glory six-months of a certain low-rent "personality," but this work was done by a person who never seems to sleep. Wow.

I hope we haven't heard the last from this gentleman. Again, wow.

Oh, and WUS goes down a peg in my book every two weeks. Those fapping gibbons over there buy anything they're told to, and they're so embarrassing.

Great forensic archaelogy. Ginault must have been active on social media, I remember there punch on WUS but never clicked further.

Agreed but, if you occasionally need to sell a watch, WUS is invaluable.

Not anymore. There are plenty of FB groups and Reddit that are much easier to deal with.

I sold $10K worth on FB via "waffle" and all I had to do was ship to auction leader. Paid less fees than eBay+PayPal charges

No question. But it's also the herd of sheep that perpetuated all that Janus Trading Company crud, Braithwait fashion FUBARs, any junk brand that takes out a banner ad, and modding decent watches till they look like gumball machine egg prizes.

Yup, but that's life in the big horological city.
