    Breaking News -- Details of "Carlo Collection" Sale

    It all started a couple of weeks ago,with Carlo's announcement that he would be selling his collection of Omega dive watches and chronographs. Perhaps you remember the photo that Carlo posted . . .


    5,485 Views later, Carlo has shipped the watches to Crown & Caliber; the watches have all been serviced; and now we have Crown & Caliber posting details as to how the sale will be conducted. Here is the Crown & Caliber posting, providing information about the sale -- Details on Upcoming 5 Day Sale.




    What a COLLECTION...
    People sleep peaceably in their beds @ night ONLY because rough men stand ready to do VIOLENCE

    Is he giving any of them away, because that's about my budget?

    Some people are going to end up with some awesome watches.

    That 1045 grabbed my eye right away too. Love me some TV cases, and that one is extra sweet.
