  1. Nice watch. The 9 & .375 mean the case is solid 9ct gold.
  2. NICE SAW-BLADE BOND!
  3. Nice bit of Space Age history, I'd pop a batt in it & wear it!
  4. But Grandmother, what big teeth you have... Those are some serious gnashers! Shirts wouldn't stand a chance against that big bad wolf! Still, I like its bold look! Have to keep it on a short (sleeve) leash.
  5. The High St in Kirky is the same Wrench. Many of the old established businesses have shut down. Others come and go but I can't believe the number of charity shops that spring up.
  6. I agree. it is missing a hand on the right register. It is an interesting watch though. You might want to get it serviced before you start wearing it everyday.
  7. I have done many straps, bracelets, plexiglass crystals & a couple stems/crowns, After wrecking a few hands, If it requires anything to do with the hands, I don't go near them any more. I have no issues replacing clock hands. I've replaced a couple clock springs but not the barrel type. Have done a few other clock repairs but nothing extensive, I forgot to lock my car the other day & it got rifled through & I lost my Jaxa case back remover.
  8. I was just in the hospital for a week. Hope all goes well Roy!!
  9. If I could afford one I'd go for a Sony Alpha A99 as it would work with my old Minolta Maxxum lenses.
  10. You sometimes will find a maker's mark on the movement under the dial.
  11. Aye Laddie, welcome aboard, ken?
  12. Exactly what Railroad Grade means, it is certified for railroad use.
  13. Congrats on the 1k when it comes! Nice looking watch, Is 64 still up for grabs? Cheers!
  14. Bracelet or black leather for me too...
  15. It is fitting that your father used it on British Railways as it is definitely a Railroad Grade watch! The great looking screw-set movement is a Grade 642, Model 1908, Waltham 17 jewel 16s (size 16) Railroad Grade watch and the 1918 is accurate. Very nice watch!
