Writers, chest pounders, blow hearts, self proclaimed "experts" and the egocentric love to throw around terms such as experimental, model, prototype, inspectors watch, employee watch, school watch, as well as rare, unique, one of a kind, first seen, "mint" etc.

This is all BS and nothing short of hype from sellers and their pimp authors seekig a commission.............it has become laughable and is a disgrace to the watch collecting community.
