level of understanding.THEPURPOSE of thisbook is to raise the levelof understanding of the
watches that are weekly

breaking up due to the
desparate economy we

it can train you to detailand critical examination,but willful ignornace
cannot be fixed. If you
choose not to know morethan you presently knowwhen opportunity ispresented the level of
collecting you are at will
remain the same. Ignorancedoes not mean lack of all
knowledge but lack of
knowledge you are unawareof that others are aware of. This book is the culiminationof wisdom andresearch
