On a tv show there was just a brilliant surprise of a watch worth far more than the owner thought because it was an unconfirmed Cartier. I wonder what happened to my Cartier watch. I should have kept it. I still have my genuine Boy London watch from the 90s.
The show I saw featuring the watch of course was Antiques Roadshow, a BBC production. Antiques Roadshow has had various presenters over the years and has grown from a somewhat stultifying show to a quite well produced, slick and entertaining show.
The show once visited Australia and as I recall, made an episode in our regional city of Ballarat. Our friend the Brighton Antique Dealer attended.
I remember Michael Aspel from tv for years ago and he presented the show for quite a few years. Ho hum, boring. What Antiques Roadshow has going for it now is an absolutely terrific presenter, Fiona Bruce. She walks the line between being quite glam, and warm and personable, with a delicious accent. At the age of 51, she is just lovely.
