  4. i don't count battery operated pocket watches. they are very comon and very low priced. i'll try to post the name of a modern jeweled pocket watch. vin
  5. nice project, good show ! simple oil/no jewels. might be easer to service than a "full jeweled" mvt.. if i am not misstaken, could it be pin balance/pin pallet? vin
  6. a swiss made pocket watch with a stainless steel case new was over 300 bucks. a good time keeper for hunting or working in heavy equipment, rather than a plastic, electronic, cell phone. i wounder if the good ones are still being made?

    i like that side mount spare tire mount. vin
  8. i like vintage camers. the East German cameras were not popular. the shutters were not acurate, the contax camera, before the war, was as good as leica, east german contax clone (russian) was poorly made and short lived. on the good side,! the lenses are very good and compete with lieca. so; after the war all the lenses we snaped up but the camerbodies were left without lenses and worthless. as it still today. vin collecting vintage ink pens is very good, like watches if you can fix them, you can use them. vin
  9. i like black fabric watch straps. much like vintage military wrist watches. black or olive drab. vin
  10. a new small ford engine, the 200 six. was developed in this era. quite good and engine with 7 main bearings. vin

  18. i bought one, still have it and it runs. the accutron collectors seem to have disapeared from this perticular forum. i'll be happy to know what they are worth now. i paid $ 600 bucks five years ago. vin

  22. buying a " a stem assortment " might be an interesting project - a chance of one in 1,000 there will be the right one in there.! who else has tried that? vin
  23. the 3 lug strap attachment is a "bugger". an experienced machinest with a milling machine could crank one out in about 2 or 3 hours. FARM IT OUT.
