    Sure no probs



    These pictures are from before I restored it. At first I didn't know the make but Enrico from this forum identified it as a Heuer. London import marks on the original silver case, made by George Stockwell, date it to 1925.

    Kevin, I don't have the means to post pix right now, but I have repaired dozens over the last 40 years, with no problems.

    For the past week I've traded my 16s B W Raymond in(as a daily carry watch)
    for my new(to me) G M Wheeler 12s.

    When you wear the ones on the upper right, do you wear them both at the same time? It would be sort of like a cowboy with a pair of six shooters.

    My wife thinks it's bad enough that I wear a wrist watch and carry a pocket watch at the same time every day...

    I do a bit of a few things mentioned here, I have Minnie Pearl watches, with tags on them (they are near ready for sale and I carry them to time test them) When I time test a pocket watch naturally I will have my solar Seiko on my wrist. When I carry a pocket watch for enjoyment, I carry my Hamilton Railway Special. I would like to add a decent Bunn special as my primary choice for a carry piece. Right now I cannot carry because I do handyman work for my living. (
