Biggest joke of all this "Full set" Nonsense is people buying boxes, hang tags and various other bits of tat to make up a "Full set"  How exactly is it a full set anyway?  You just bought a knackered old watch, a cardboard box and a few bits of string and paper none of which are related to the watch other than they were printed in the same decade.  A full set is surely what actually came with the watch when you bought it not what you picked up off ebay???

Yes but sods law kicks in and you have every model except those ones.

Same with valuable VHS and old records, I have thousands of them but not the right ones.

Speaking as someone who has a full set Rolex you are welcome to collect boxes of old tat sorry receipts.  I am sure those boxes of stone Island tags will come in useful some day....erm....maybe:laugh:

Possibly 

You could try Mumsnet, according to Big M they are big on Hoovering and Hinching on there.

@ZenArcade

Maybe you should do a bit more research into vintage and anniversary edition Stone Island before you mock

Amongst others I have an original SI Shadow Project stealth jacket and a 30th Anni Mussola Gommata coat.

got to be worth at least another tenner with the receipts and tags and whilst maybe not really “rare” I’ve never met or seen anybody else wearing either.

:whistle:

You got it wrong Bond, I service vacuum cleaners at cost for family and friends. I am now retired and free to do what I like.:biggrin:

Numatic vacuum cleaners are ideal for cleaning poorly maintained (and designed) vacuum cleaners.

If you need any tips...……………………….

Try YouTube.

Back to the topics . . . .

--  If I were going to spend £14k on a watch, no Rolex would appear in the shortlist of fifty. Just personal preference  --  luckily, we are all different.

--  If we think that one newby posting fifty times in twenty four hours (in a forum which tends to get about 200 posts per day) is other than just an enthusiastic entrance :tongue:, the answer is simple. Ask Roy to make access to the classifieds dependent upon fifty posts and three months membership (as is the case with other (darker) forums).

Doubt if we need more/new rules on this as the mods can no doubt delay access if they feel that a member has been speed posting. With the classifieds section, I would tend to still look at the buyer/seller much as I would look at the feedback scores on the bay. I would feel more confident buying from a member who has been around for a while and takes an active part in threads rather than someone who has only been around for a short time. I'm sure that members would soon raise concerns if they felt someone had only joined to take advantage of any `mates rates' offers.

I struggle to think of any reason why people think the small ad’s of the forum hold pots of unclaimed gold I believe they may be seriously disappointed..
