Good site, a shame that it has been neglected but the owner recently, but I understand that she has been very sick.
Hope you get well soon, and carry on your excellent and original work,
I see that Mark Lawrence aka fifth has posted as Andy L.
His remarks about site content is strange, as he is the biggest advert and article thief on the internet.
He also makes a lot of his stuff up, pretending to know more than he does, and will try to drag down others. He is a kind of nihilistic naysayer with delusions of grandeur. He is sure no-one knows anything about anything as much as he does.
This undereducated low-brow will stop at nothing, and digs himself into some pretty deep holes in his quest for Bulova stardom, even though he has only been interested in vintage watches since late 2010.
I'm a little late to the party on reviewing this really nice, and friendly site. Better late than never I say. This site owner never intended to be the main competition to the mybulova site, she just wanted a way to document her passion for vintage Bulova watches, along with all her hard research into documenting the lost Bulova history.
However, lately there have been "personal attacks" made by a few of the mybulova panel members. These attacks are not only unprofessional and UN-waranted, are quite frankly childish. In a effort to try to increase the steadily decreasing ratings of the mybulova website, certain members have resorted to mudslinging and outright LIE'S. One member in particular try's "bullying tactics" to force others into buying his insane "theories", including his "Frank Lloyd Wright" connection to Bulova Corporation. If you read the threads where he keeps trying to establish this connection you'll see where he is not only proved WRONG by actual hard work and research, but other members are actually questioning his sanity.
There are others who have written intelligent reviews here at sitejabber and Alexa, including "former" members of mybulova, including myself. Most have suggested that mybulova "police" their own loose cannons like "FifthAvenueRestorations" and clean up the database, which is inundated with inaccuracies. These suggestions have met with "deaf ears" and the site owner has basically refused to listen to these or any other suggestions. Begs the question as to why he continues to protect "this" member, but has actually kicked other members off the website???
Watchophilia.com even though never intended to become "competition" to mybulova but in reality is a much better, friendlier, knowledgeable site, and based on the direction mybulova is heading, will be around a lot longer!!!
