Just thinking. The "Watch Shows and Fairs" forum might be a bit narrow. Maybe change it to "News"? With added explanation, f.e.: Information on Watch Shows, Fairs and new publications.

The news could be a new gruen book. Or an article on vintage watches. Or an announcment of a Gruen Guru speaking somewhere.
Or a newsarticle saying "Gruen old archives found on attic Time Hill" Very Happy

Another excellent idea! I threw these together last night on a whim. Please do review and add what you think is missing, delete what is unnecessary. I want to use this forum as a template when we put the vanilla version of this software in production an update to what we do here.

Changes made! Speaking of news, this software has the ability to download NTTP Usenet news feeds. Wonder if there is such a thing as a vintage watch feed?

Somewhat of a personal taste. But will try. Like most of your late night work!!!

Tried to stick to some rules: max 10 subforums, no overlap, Gruen focused.


What did I change:
Combined the for sale and wanted. These weren't very active used on the old Gruen home.

Removed the PW subforum. PW are also watches and therefore fit into the other subforums. And having a convertible (is it a ww or a pw?Wink facilitated my choice where to put it. Very Happy

I'm good with that, thanks! I'm just trying to stir the thought juices in your head. Get you all thinking. ;-)
