The onlysubstitute for knowledge is money! Think about it. Money does not equalknowledge, but it seemslike it to those using it as their Guide. This book costs $50.00-FOR A REASON. This is the culiminationof knowledge ofthe life of Roy Ehrhardt. This book has 93 colorpages of remarkable watches with more remarkable pricesrealized in the New York Watch Auction of the Century of American Watches. The updateswere done by Roy, Larry, and Bill just before Bill's death. Collectors and Dealers need this bookfor variations are shownthat were first shown inthe 1970's Price Indicators of Roy Ehrhardt, along with many newdial and movementvariations. More variationsappear monthly as old watches are still out there being inherited, sold andfound in pawn shop safes, and watchmakers drawers. Collectors whohave long standing experience know that one piece of knowledge in each book will pay for the price of that book and more. IF ATTENTION is paid to the information contained THERIN andit does not become a coffee table collector edition.

You can be an avergecollector or dealer and still as the old saying goes- EVEN A BLIND HOGFINDS AN ACORN ONCE IN AWHILE.

I have been told to--Dumb Down--This Introduction andthis book would sell better for it is above thewatch traders level ofunderstanding. THE PURPOSE ofthis book is to raise thelevel of understandingof the watches thatare weekly passing through your hands frompawn shops, gold buyouts, and collectionsbreaking up due tothe desparate economywe are now all in. If I dumb this introductiondown you will still bedumb. This book can fixdumb, it can train you to detail and critical examination but willfulignornace cannot be fixed.If you choose not toknow more than you presently know when opportunity is presentedthe level of collecting you are at will remainthe same. Ignorance does not mean lack ofall knowledge but lack of knowledge you are unaware of that others are aware of. This book is the culimination of wisdom and research information of the life of Roy Ehrhardt,Col. George Townsend, and Bill Meggers along with the list of contributors and the unlisted thousandsthat took serial numbersand movement variationsfor Roy and Bill and all of us at the startof Col. Townsend's publishing career who recorded serial numbers for him. George and Roy have a large record of correspondence over the years as he was a large contributor to Roy's work in later years. ATTENTION-ATTENTION-ATTENTION to Detail and Comprehension offeatures of what you arelooking at that is Uniqueor Special sets apart the watch trader from the knowledgeable dealer or collector. Dial Variations-ColoredDials and RR Inspectornames make a remarkable difference in priceto a low jeweled or gold-filled watch. A Railroad grade watch can be boosted in priceas much as 10 times ormore. Jeweler Namesand Personalized Special order customernames are the sleeperof the present and futureaccording to Larry Ehrhardt. Many dealers have made a good side living buyingand selling these personalized name watchesfor years. The value of this book is to use this book as a Study Guide. To benefit from it youmust have the desire to Focus your Attention tothe Critical Variations ofmovement models thatmake the Dramatic Difference in prices from one to the same one withthe gold flashing orspecial dial or special RR Inspector name orother feature that isa special order or shortfactory run, or a- ONE OFF-for a special reason.Workmen took home withand without permissionmovements and when companies were in hardtimes or closing paid salaries in movements and workmen finishedthese at home or sometimes on company premises.
