It's been a while since I've posted. I know there was some controversy about people posting new strap pics with "I just got this great strap from XXXX seller!" that were seen as shilling, etc.

I have a general question about a seller who was pretty popular on Paneristi a while back. Kurt/The Watchboys still has a website presence online but has gone dark as to answering emails, etc. I wanted to know if anyone knew if he was still actively in business or is just liquidating remaining stock, etc.

If my post is out of line, please delete mods.

Thanks!

He used to do quite a bit of business on eBay, you may want to search there under watchboys and see if there are any current listings.

Good luck!

I'm also an old-timer, albeit a recently less active one here on Paneristi. I've been visiting since the late 90s. I still have a PAM, a 000.

I know Kurt was pretty active on Paneristi back in the day, and attended a few get-togethers, etc.

is taking up most of his time, so straps take a back seat.

He does post on the sales corner once in awhile, but not as much as he used to.

Could be on vacation, but with today's modern phones. Can't see ignoring a email

Are you using a email on hand? Could be old.

Do a check on the Accessory Vendors' Market for his most recent post and see if your email matches up.
