Nope. No joy today! But I coincidentally got a shipping notice from UPS that the parts were just picked up and will be here tomorrow. It would be a roughly 3 hour drive to go pick them up.

Stay tuned for something related but different...

I’m pretty excited to get mail anymore. Just hard to read or play with from 6 feet away.
I can’t wait to see what you get..keep us all up to speed.

Hi Chad,

Nice, WW1 trench type watches. Hard to believe that the wristwatch is only just over 100 years old, and was a development of WW1.

I used to collect military watches, and obviously still have a interest. I have a couple of WW1, both Omega's, and an aircraft clock (basically a big pocket watch).

I have standard military Elgins and Walthams from WW2, Army, USAAF and USMC (no USN, never saw one). British (swiss made) watches from WW2, then postwar RAF watches, starting with the Omega 53, finishing with Seiko 7A28, 1980's RAF watch.

i then moved onto Space worn only, a 1967 Omega Speedmaster made in the same batch as Buzz Aldrin's watch, Russian Sturmanski, Chinese Seagull. then stopped, and became interested in other things. (-:

Best Regards,

Adrian

Lol...yes. I stopped at these 4, because it is too easy to get out of hand! I can't wear the blank face Waltham, because I'm left handed. They are amazing little delicate things that just work.

What I thought was a big old fingerprint on the fresh paint, turned out to be something else, and not me!! I'm just a dork I guess, I like finding stuff like this:laughing:

I went light on the paint and it didn't take much at all to almost make it disappear again...

(Pic later)

And a little cap detail....
