  1. I have eleven German watches. Ten bear the legend "made in Germany". Only one, the Benziger, uses 'fabricken in das faderland', but he seems to have misspelled it
  2. I normally think of my German friends as being inclined to tell it (more or less) like it is, keen to include lots of technical detail, and lovers of facts.

  8. But, here's a professional video. If this doesn't make you want one . . . . . . .
  9. The word "collector" implies (for me) that there should be some sort of theme running through the treasure hoard, and also that some sort of strategy for developing the collection should exist. My problem is that I'm learning about this daft affliction so fast (and, as @Karrusel opines: the more you get to know, the more you realise how much more you don't know) that any strategy will be out of date almost before it is formulated. So I'm limited to a small (but ever changing) list of targets, and waiting for sensible opportunities to appear. That policy is, by definition, opportuni
