    150,000

    Just on 1foot square display tray in a shop window saw tonight !! (Manchester Trafford centre)

    Just 15 or 20 watches !!, I lost count at 150K !!

    They were Zenith's , on the next door tray there were Tag's (similar quantity and tray value) , next to that were a couple more trays of errrrmmm..... , my eyes drifted back to the Zenith's mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    For some bizarre reason the shop seemed have made a mistake on every single one of them from what I remember Zenith prices were, when I were a lad....., involving the decimal point

    They'd have probably thought I was casing the joint in prep for a ram raid lol


    I just didn't think , I was so overwhelmed by the value and quantity of quality watches right in front of me..

    These sort of places usually have rubbish lesser valued stuff , but all these pieces were north of 3,4,5,7 grand each
