    Turns out the Fluco "Faltschließe" (fold buckle?) aren't made in Germany.

    I think the market has already peaked (my impression is that prices have stabilised, softened or even fallen slightly). No bursting of the bubble but some depreciation if you bought at the top.

    Vintage Smiths De Luxe?

    All made in England (well, the jewels were made in Scotland)
