Default I CAN MAKE IT NEW--BUT AT WHAT PRICE?

QUICK VERSION: guy calls, bought his first watch--common 21J Ball

wants to replace the dial with an unused one on a worn out mov't

turns out he buried himself on fleabay

next issue is brass case

nest issue--not a Ball case

(The burial is even worse than I thought)

Why? wants to put away a few WATCHES FOR THE KIDS

EXPENSIVE DIAL

then wants a case

SIR, why don't you simply buy a correct, straight watch--cheaper, and rid yourself of the headache?

agrument unsues with a guy who has been in watches 5 minutes!

I GIVE UP--wasted 50 minutes talking to a fool!

tagline: now we have another member of the switching crew of know nothings!
