Luxury fake watch naturally incorporate the finest materials in the world. Many luxury watches use 14kt or 18kt yellow gold on the band or case. White or rose gold are also popular materials used for fine timepieces. The most expensive of all metals used in watch making is platinum. Many very fine luxury watches simply use stainless steel bands and bracelets.

    from Bantam Classics. The Paperback edition (2010) from General Books LLC that you oilnrgaliy viewed is the one you'll receive if you click the Add to Cart button at left. And that's correct. The General Books LLC version is a completely different book. To wit . General Books LLC puts together books using an OCR automated scanning device which can miss complete pages. There are many many Typos and no table of contents. There books receive NO EDITING of any kind, also, the OCR scanning is done by a robot (which the publishers website outright says can miss pages). This is all stated on the publishers web site (google them and read for yourself to get all the details). Almost every review of books published by General Books LLC (around 500,000 of them from one imprint or another now listed on Amazon) by buyers is negative, many are extremely so. As the General Books LLC version has reviews of other publishers versions associated with it, you need to be very careful to make sure you've bought a decent version. If you have bought the version from General Books LLC by mistake, you can return to Amazon within 30 days(but check Amazon's Return Policy for the details).
