3 star rating system

Please explain the 3 star rating system.  I don't recall reading about  how it works or what the determing factors are too receive a 1 2 or 3 rating.  Thanks.  Bill

Here it is in a nutshell http://www.mybulova.com/important-notices 

Basically if the watch has an ad to support the ID, it is 3 stars, but it must have a factory case and the movement date codes should be within 1-2 years. The dials may very slightly as long as they are close to the ad

You double posted this question so please delete the second post

Can anyone explain why this Watch has a 2 star rating?

Hi Mark,

That is a good question, I have not rated this one yet along with about 900 other Bulovas in need of a rating. Spring-Summer=busy time, Late Fall-Winter=more free time ; )

Looks like a 3 star to me and I will rate it as such, but it may need more help than me to push it up to 3 stars...

Thank You Gentlemen.

I would agree that a Watch would / should have a matching vintage advertisement or similar confirmation ( Crystal, N.O.S. hang tag etc.) in order to attain the full 3 Stars.

The three options currently are:

1. Not confirmed *.

2. Tentative **.

3. Confirmed ***.

I would also vote to have in place an option to completely reject any ID presented, zero stars perhaps?
