  1. I fitted this Backset with a vintage band so I thought I would grab a quick shot of it in a vintage box. I really love the baseball plate markers. I have a version in a cushion case as well. Thanks, Mike
  2. That's it for me! :lol: I respectfully defer to the gentleman from NY. Bill, would you mind filling in the rest? Thanks, Mike

  4. Yup, Bill, I wandered over here from the Timex forum. Thought I might see what's happening "across the pond." BTW, were you asking me if I need a Dorado or telling me? :lol: Mike K. This electric watch world is REALLY SMALL. Indeed it is. I've just cottoned on to who "electrified Mike" is....we've exchanged a few emails in the last few months Mike! Welcome! Nice backset trio by the way! Thanks, Paul, for the warm welcome and to everyone else as well. BTW, How's that Portinoux doing? I took another look at your photos. What year did it sell for $49.75? Just curious. Thanks, Mike
  5. Thanks for the nice welcome, Bill. The Saga is great. The #67 exhibition back is incredible. I've always felt that the #67 was a really great looking movement (unlike the 40 for instance.) That shows it off perfectly. It must be something to see that balance swinging. Mike

  7. I'm in the process of photographing my Timex Backset collection which, I'm proud to say, has reached a total of twenty. I decided to pose these three from 1962. All have the #67 movement and keep excellent time. The watch on the immediate left has a Sunburst Dial variation. Thanks! Mike
  8. What do you think? Faceted enough? :D
  9. Got a few Dave...but none quite as nice as yours. The Camy would be nice if only the dial was in better condition: And a very nice Midland courtesy of Dombox...yet to be photographed. ;) Paul, That Tradition is absolutely wild. I love that watch. For me, that seems to be the point where watch dial aesthetics went completely haywire. I think it's so interesting to gauge how the manufacturers sought to represent "futuristic" concepts through iconography, i.e., Lightning Bolts = Electric, Atomic Symbol = Transistorized, etc. Mike
  10. Is that crystal faceted in a sort of "star" shape? It is. In fact, depending upon how you "set" the crystal, the "read" of the watch face changes. I didn't realize it but it's different from Dombox40's. That one appears to be less faceted. Mike
  11. Here's a shot of all three. (They posed for this :) ) Thanks, Mike
  12. Here's my Elnix. The faceted crystal is pretty wild but it makes reading the watch face a bit tricky. From what I understand, the SG versions are of a higher quality that the standard Elnix models. Thanks, Mike
  13. This is my Gruen Electra. The Lightning Bolt hands are a real attraction for me. Thanks, Mike
  14. Hi, My name is Mike and I'm brand new to this Forum. I'm an active member of the Timex Watch Forum. My main interests are Timex, Electric and Electronic watches. I have a decent collection of Timex watches from '46 to the present and a fair representation from Hamilton, Benrus, and Gruen. Looking forward to some interesting browsing. Thanks, Mike
