This is a open form to get input from ALL MEMBERS on establishing a set of guidelines for what should be required to correctly give a posted watch a 3 "tick" rating.
As many of you have seen in the past few months, theory's and opinions seem to take precedence on the panel's rating of watches, and everyone has a different opinion. (you know the old saying about opinions) ; ) I am as guilty as others here of this.
Just what should we go by when we rate these watches? What do we think about variants?, does it need to have the same band as the ad? does it need to have the exact dial as the ad?
How about a posted watch with a hang tag? is it worth a 3 star rating?, what about a watch ID'd with crystal spec's?
Do we give a watch a 3 check rating even if the info, supporting ad, or clear pictures are not provided.
I am sure that there are many other questions/requirements that should be addressed on this subject, and I welcome everyone to share their thoughts on this subject...and have asked Admin to pin this to the top of this form topic so it doesn't get buried by other posts.
Every ones input on this will help give the panel and those who would like to be on the panel guidelines on exactly what our votes should be based on.
I look forward to the responses and please keep it only to this subject.
