Firstly, thanks for taking the time to look at my first post as a newbie.
The reason for joining the forum is because I found an AP watch ...... Nooooo, I hear you say.... but oh Yes I did.
I found the watch in the road, saw it glistening from a distance in the fast lane, as the traffic was crawling along, so when I got level with it, I opened my car door and lent down a picked it up.
As soon as I saw it was an AP, you can imagine I was thinking: This can’t be real.
It has some road rash on the bezel but generally it’s in very very good condition considering it was in the gutter.
I showed it to my lad and he took some links out and was wearing it to school. Then, this weekend just gone on a business trip I took the watch to an AP dealer and they authenticated the watch as genuine..... !!!
So..... what do I do..... ?
Take it to the Police and hand it in (hoping they don’t have any interest in it and it’s returned to us as ‘finders keepers’ ?
Wear it as is ?
Send it off to AP for a refurb, which is likely to cost me around £1,500 or more ? (Knowing if AP have it recorded as lost/stolen then I won’t see it again)
What would be your thoughts on what to do with it ?
Will upload a pictures shortly .... just working out how to.....
(I love a nice watch, but the AP isn’t really a bit of me, I’d be more at home with other brands or some cash in the bank !)
Thanks in advance .....
