  1. Commentary on 16s 23j Vanguard

    I've had this one on my shelf for quite some time. It is a beat-up, mistreated Vanguard in a heavily worn case. Not a truly collectable piece, but I've also heard one of our Friends here saying he actually likes such worn watches - I agree, you can see it's whole life just looking at it.

  3. A low grade English market Waltham

    Hi again.
    Continuing my blog showing the insides of American watch movements, I've took some pictures of a low grade Waltham. This low grade Waltham might seem rather dull and non-interesting piece,
    but it is one of the, slightly scarcer, 14 size full plates made for the English market.
    What I wanted to show here is how very cost efficient this movement was, as competiting in lhe low range surely was getting harder and demand for even cheaper movements was high.
    This is probably ...

    A great looking, Early Elgin, recased in a Silveroid case made a bit later than the movement itself.
    Features the original, beautiful, enamel dial in very good condition!
    Under the case back, there is the very first model made in Elgin, the 18 size full plate
    B.W.Raymond in the first version.

    I was curious how it looks inside - here's the report for you ...
