I bought a VC Royal eagle limited edition F1 2006 istanbul in 2007 , its been in my collection till now and has NEVER been worn and it even has all the stickers on it . My question is , at what price can i sell it ?
as this and other prohibitions are not readily known to new posters.
Up until very recently, , I didn't realize where the "Rules" were either. But those MANY years ago when we, all, originally registered to be members of the Hour Lounge - there is this link to the Forum Rules and Privacy Statement:
I don't actually recall this at all . Quite a mixture of legal, privacy and forum rules all mashed together. I took a few minutes to parse out the rules; perhaps this is more user friendly...

Most sites have "fine print" rules which you have to agree to before being able to submit your registration but I think many just assume that it is the usual mumbo-jumbo and just tick the box without reading.
Maybe we can have just the most basic rules written at the start of the registration page in a manner in which not even a blind man can miss them.
Just my 2 yen.
all... which is a pity as it is beautiful in RG plus LE
It's a very nice watch, that you today only would get peanuts for,
compared to it's real worth!
Selling by auction houses doesn't help, since they take so much for themselves,
selling yourself on any watch selling site, or Ebay gives probably more,
but still only small money considering the real value.
I know, since I sold a lot of Vacheron&Constantin watches in my comany the last two years,
and at the moment it's worser than ever!
