Default Whats Hot and What's Not

Jon,
What a shame! Do the dealers then offer the Movements for sale with out cases, or do they just disappear into drawers and parts bins, or are many just trashed? What a shame it would be to waste a commodity such as a watch movement that could never be produced again , no matter how common it was thought to be!! That is exactly what happenned to millions of Dollar Watches only for a totally different reason!
