Will Fly

Hallo From A New Member

Recommended Posts

Hi - my name's Will Fly and I'm based in Sussex in the UK. I've always been interested in watches since I was small - my uncle was a watchmaker and jeweller - and, since I retired, have concentrated more on mechanical wind pocket watches. Here are three of them - I won't bore you with the rest just yet...

Waltham half-hunter, Traveler movement, Dennison case, 1918


Elgin 571 "B.W. Raymond" Railroad grade, 1949


J.G. Graves English Lever Movement, 1903, Silver cased, Chester

They're in very good condition. The J.G. Graves has just been repaired and serviced - broken mainspring - and the half-hunter misses on the wind occasionally, which, from what I can tell, appears to be a slightly faulty click wheel. All keep excellent time.

I like your two Elgins, Will....here's a particularly scarce 1924 green gold filled Elgin with a rather special dial! I get to wear this about 5 times a year.


...and another green gold beauty...a 1938 Hamilton with purple hands and original box...

Some lovely stuff there, folks - I'm hoping to get a good condition Hamilton in the not too distant future...
