Also -- if the board can be anonymous as to who owns what, then there is no real competition. You might be to guess in some instances, but it's still a guess.

And -- you don't have to put all your stuff up there; just the ones that would be of most interest to other collectors wanting to know what exists. Jeez, how fun is it to go to your grave without sharing what you have with all but a few friends? I don't understand the "I have this and that rare piece, and no one will find out about it until I'm gone." (and your video-game loving great-nephew inherits everything).

Ken, FYI, I have done more exhibits, lectures, shown more watches than anyone else in American watches. I also have answered more questions on watches than anyone in horology.

Take a look at my web site--I am not exactly hiding anything..............

I wasn't thinking specifically of you, Jon. I was (we were) thinking of all the collectors with pieces unknown to the outside world.

For my own satisfaction, if someone out there has Jos Moorhouse's employment records or dials signed by him in the 1860s, or some kind of proof that he painted dials without signing them, which I very much expect to see some day, I would like that person to be forthcoming and helpful.

I'm sure you have your own questions about some early watchmakers. How many did they make? Who did they work for? Did this watch really belong to that famous guy, etc.?
