    Indeed... it took quite some effort to make one of these. The precision is amazing no doubt, as is the fusee chain itself for example. So many tiny links riveted together with these tiny hooks on both ends - I enjoyed this work a lot

    The inside is lot more interesting to see than the outside.
    People don't think of the craftsmanship that goes into making things work. They just see the whole.

    Thank you for the close-uphotos and explanations.
    Amazing the precision accomplished before modern machines.

    The moment I saw the listing I knew it was mine.
    It's a beautiful watch

    Nice to see it ticking away. It cleaned up nicely! As always, a fine write-up.

    A pretty little watch, Paul. Nice to see an example with the case, dial and hands all together. Good write-up and good explanation of 'the spring'.

    Thanks for kind words !
    Just now I've won a pretty much busted Bates, I hope it will come out equally well!

    Splendid photographs. They make me want to do watches again, but my hand tremor confines me to clocks, phooey. Very fine work.

    And yes, I try to get 4 digit numbers, best with Currier's Patent, when possible
    Never got a 3 digit by far...

    Nice job.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Super early serial number makes it just that much better.
