As a researcher I wanted to run a series of tests on a watch from Washington DC. I was forwarded its history and I took delivery of the said item a week later.
I run the tests, just.
To assume these items are not what they claim may be a little quick off the mark. Have any of you actually run any tests yourself on any other items of similair claim or are you just quick about offering an opinion?

A bucket of water for sale on an internet auction site has raised £255 for charity.
Justin Kelly of Bristol put the water on the internet site eBay as a joke but when bids soared he decided to use the stunt to raise money for Oxfam.
More than 20,000 people visited the site during the seven-day auction which closed on Friday evening. A total of 33 bids were received for the "fabulous bucket of Bristol tap water".
Bristol Water has said it will top up the fund with £200 towards the cause - the charity's water project in Sudan.
A week ago the bidding reached £1,220 but the auction had to re-start after being mistakenly shut down. A customer support worker on the eBay site was unaware of the wide publicity surrounding the charity sale and thought it was a hoax.
Mr Kelly, 31, who when the story broke was known only as "juss01" or "Bucketman", said his original intention had been to see if people really would buy anything.
