  1. Gotta be the Omega...
  2. You'll like this Grados one I just took out of the bag... 9:00 marker is labeled 009 and they tell you the little window at 3:00 indicates the day? (should read date?) Cheap BASIS WATCH movement which is running though the hour hand does't move. The kicker here is the repair tag reading... Tight hands, was in Karate fight. One tough watch...
  3. The Rockford dates from 1901. I think I should go and buy a lottery ticket...
  4. Sorry, having been a certified diver for about 50 years, I think i'll be seeing about getting it going. Also, I have never seen this model before. I have seen these hands on a Bulova self-winding but not on an Accutron. Rod
  5. I wish I could get a pic to show off the dial better...if you expand the image you can see that the linen sections are sort of diamond shaped. The fan ribs & linen lines are cut quite deep, the dial is mint and shiny like new.
  6. Yep, it was like opening presents, some tickled my fancy while others were more or less cast aside!
  7. THE 3 R's = RIGHT PLACE - RIGHT TIME - RIGHT PRICE! Yesterday I took an hour drive to buy some watch & clock maker's lathe parts. We agreed on the lathe bits and as I was loading up he handed me a plastic shopping bag weighing about 4.1kg or 9lbs saying here's some watches you can have fun sorting out, there are some good ones in here, give me $10 for the whole bag. (That's just over a Fiver for the or £5.66 at today's exchange rate), I said okay & headed home. The first watch I pulled out was an old Timex in very rough shape (totally un-fixable) so figured there wasn't going to be much in here. Out cam a few other 'non-descript' watches Then... I noticed an interesting set of hands, it was a 1960's Wittnauer Electro-Chron Electric, popped in a battery and it started ticking away! Next out were a couple fake Rolex's. After that another watch peaked out at me. Accutron Deep Sea 666 Feet - haven't got a battery yet. Then a Longines Ultronic - haven't got a battery yet. Working 10k Gold Filled Enicar Ultrasonic with very fancy lugs and gorgeous 2 tone black dial with a sort of ribbed fan shape radiating out 1-2 4-5 7-8 and 10-11 with the 2-4 5-7 8-10 & 11-1 gaps having a diamond shaped linen pattern. the pics do not do this dial justice it is a rich deep black. Railroad Grade Rockford p/w - needs a mainspring. Working 19th c Railroad Grade Movement. A few other working watches. About 60 more watches maybe 30 or so are ladies all in need of some sort of repairs. Some are gold plated. All in all, a GREAT DEAL for a little more than Fiver! 7
  8. Very tasty indeed to have merited 1000+ licks?
  9. I can find no reference to a Wm Northwood clockmaker so would assume he was maybe a Jeweller / retailer who sold clocks and had his name put on the dial.
  10. I like the Cauny...
  11. THE CRYSTAL IS SO CLEAR, THE CASE SHOWS HARDLY ANY WEAR AND THAT PRISTINE MOVEMENT... WOW! THAT'S A BEAUTY PAUL!
  12. Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you keep yourself very busy...
  13. Another name to toss in the hat if I may... Always like the Green party!
  14. NICE LOOKING WATCH, WHAT SIZE IS IT?
