I was wondering why you didn't follow the standard information drop down format for logging a watch into the db. You went right into a history lesson & didn't log any serial data about the movement or the case. A'int no biggie!! I know what is is & voted yea.

Movement and case serial numbers help us to figure out what if any ranges exist and what movement types were used in various models. Would certainly appreciate if you could add the details of the movement.
