    • Most of these apart from the two Zeniths  have been sold to finance my current collection but none of the photos have been enhanced and most just taken with a phone camera.   
    • The UK is awash with fakes, clothes, watches, fags and so on. There are any number of Facebook pages and twitter feeds flogging the stuff. It's rife. And as said previously I'll bet 99% of purchasers know exactly what they are buying and for whatever reason don't think twice about it or see a problem with it. I worked beside a bloke and his full wardrobe from top to bottom was fake gear. He didn't care. That fat girl in Asda with the snotty sprog buying smartprice chip and beans, you can bet pretty much everything you've got that her £1200 Montclar coat (the latest must have around here for the girls), two grand LV handbag and UGG boots are as fake as her dodgy tan. And I still think this super fake is a bit of an urban myth, you only need to look at the dodgy stitching on the coat, the plasticy looking bag and baggy boots and her to see the stuff is just cheap rubbish. Someone in another thread mentioned £800 for a good fako, where can you buy a new Rolex, any Rolex for that matter for that sort of money so you either know what your buying or your not the sharpest tool in the box. And the £800 job will be no better than the cheap ones.

    • I've dropped loads. I always wince. I'm a good toe catcher as well - footy skills never leave you. Worse drop was my ceramic DSOTM onto a hard tiled floor, I yelped and looked away. No problem, thankfully. Then I remembered it's had worse treatment
