A couple from the bootsale this morn!


Recommended Posts

Hi all

I picked up two watches this morning at the bootsale, A TV shaped Timex (Have a boxed one somewhere with the same gp TV shaped case!!) and an old Belstar LCD, The bracelet as ever was too small for my chubby wrists so I dug an old 20mm lizard style strap out and fitted that, I don't think i'll get to keep this one long as the mum in law has taken a shine to it!!

The Belstar Alarm LCD was on an expander but one springbar was missing!, It was running but needed the time setting on it!, I found an old stainless hook and clasp type bracelet (Very thin and from around the 80's!)  then adjusted it to my wrist :thumbsup:

With new bracelet fitted and a little polishing..

The Timex, Gave that a little polish too, Also put some Renaissance wax on to the strap as it felt very dry!!

Same case but different coloured dial/hands!

Where abouts are you John? I've got bolton in my head... do you do the Macron stadium one?

I've shuffled around a couple since they opened but coming up pretty much empty handed.   I stood one today though and made a fortune, almost cleared the stall - spare room might actually pass as an office now!

Sorry for the late reply Kev, I'm actually in Sheffield :thumbsup:

 

I also bought a couple of cheapo pocketknives and a couple of other things, I went Marsh lane bootsale and one called Bowshaw :thumbs_up:
