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

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...
