  2. An old, rusty verge...

    I still remember the good old days, when internet was not very popular and relatively expensive, eBay was not yet even known in Poland and Polish auction websites were just getting started.
    Those days the antique fairs like the one in bytom or Gliwice, held once or twice a month used to be places where true gems could be found.
    Today these places turned, with very little exceptions in unattractive markets full of crap, and truly interesting pieces are very hard to find.

  3. Fancy 7 jewel... part one - fancy dial

    Seven jewel watches... usually low end versions, not very collectable, not interesting, mass made nothing specials.

    Here's the issue:

  5. Dial resilvering - Germany

    I am restoring an antique Kienzle grandfather clock and have successfully been able to get it into good working order. The case is beautiful German oak and is in excellent condition. However, I need to have the dial face re-silvered and new numerals painted. I am located in Frankfurt, Germany and need to find a shop in Germany that does this work. Does anyone know of such?
