Quandary Resolution 2170
horology, contumelious, flummox, nostrum
The family heirloom, a valuable but increasingly erratic full hunter gold watch, was met with the utmost contumely by the horologist, who flummoxed me by declining to provide any valuation, instead urging purchase of his 1943 Panerai Mare Nostrum chronograph - a curious nostrum indeed, for he offered no part exchange, but was intent on demanding a hefty disposal fee.
