  1. An old Swiss watch from Locle

    What is a quick watch collector's association when he hears LeLocle Switzerland? Some would quickly say Charles Tissot, some would probably choose Georges Jacot and Zenith brand...
    Yes, LeLocle surely is among the most famous watchmaking cities around the world.

    Today's post, however, does not begin exactly in LeLocle - I'll get back to LeLocle later on.
    Today's trip begins - once again - in Cracov.
    Precisely - Szczepanski Square, right by the main square.

  2. Antique fair hunt on The Three Emperor's Corner (part nine)

    Today, after some hard day and night work, I visited the monthly antique fair in Dabrowa Gornicza. Please forgive me - I'm not going to transliterate this one, as I might as well spent the whole night doing that, it's just a city neighbouring mine from north-east. So we remain at the far end of Russian empire.

    One could think that on an antique fair on a post-Russia territory, one would find plenty of old Russia's watches, but no. In fact, I don't think there were that many watches ...

  3. Illinois 106 re-united with Wadsworth case...

    I'm such a screw-up recently
    I admit, having less time than I used to have and being waaaay more tired in general (new, time consuming and very tiring job is the reason), I've become both impatient and imprecise.
    Just today I was about to show you how I finally finish my Neveren fake watch, but the crystal turned out not wide enough and the lovely minute hand... I broke as I was attempting to broach the square to fit the cannon pinion.

    Damn it - it would have been just ...

  4. The Three Emperor's Corner - part eight - missed it :(

    Missed a nice watch, I mean.
    Today, having some extra money, I went to Cracov again to get a nice private label Swiss watch I've seen last time I was there (a few months ago...).



    Right here, just by the restaurant tables, there is a watchmaker's estate where I've already bought some nice watches. Unfortunately, the watch turned out to be long gone when I finally could afford to buy it. ...

  5. The Three Emperor's Corner - part seven - a Russian wreck

    Back to my homeland again, I'd like to remind you of the old Russian boarder railroad station in Sosnowiec:



    Like I said - the station is in terrible state, but it's being refurbished at last.
    I got back to this photograph, because here I have another wreck from the time of the old Empire:
