You're way off base.

Mr Hanleys' comment was referring to the spec sheet displayed in the same post, which has now changed from the original. The original spec sheet image displayed the dates quoted by Mr Hanleys' text.

"You're way off base".

If you would take the trouble to read my post, you would see that in my very first sentence, I ask if that is what you meant.

I think you're not paying attention.

Don't know who did that, but it should be re-instated so as not to "lose the thread" of this thread.

Gang   The actual Image of the table is not in the thread, so to speak.  Only a link to where that image is stored on site.  This avoids duplicate images on the server each time someone want's to reference/show an image (in this case- a table).  As new/revised versions of the table were supplied, these newer versions replaced the outdated versions at this root directory where the actual table is stored.  So all the "links" to the old table are still there, it's simply that they point to the newer table.

Then who went in and edited the post?, or is that a "link" phenomenon too....

Some pretty bold statements of sham, fraud and deceit have been made in this thread as an attempt to discredit which are totally unfounded.

The burden of proof is on you to back up your claims Mark, not on the panel, and as a panel member, you should know that.

If you do own this watch, and claim the date to be 1950, provide the proof, or move it to the unknown category...its that simple.

'UNKNOWN'?

I'll take that one up with admin Greg as the Watch is obviously not an unknown, the Caseback nomenclature shows this.

Without a confirmed date, it is a unknown, last time I checked, there was no "Hopeful 1950 Military Issue category...

2 ticks for '50 A17A. I don't doubt that it's an A17A but without proof of the year I can't confirm.
