    Default Re: The new watch: My 1755 Boyer Glover Verge Fusee... (By: gmorse)

    Thanks Graham,

    I am even happier with my watch now - knowing that

    Well - if that is possible really lol.

    In the process of finding and purchasing this watch I seem to have learned a bit about these little mechanical works of art - I must have been learning from the right people I guess ? At least now I am getting an eye for quality...


    Kind regards,

    John.

Silk or some soft material was inside the Fob Pockets of Waistcoats. I know because I wore 3 piece Suits a lot many years ago. Regards Ray Attachment 346312

    Thank you I am happy to report that she is still ticking along beautifully and typically never more than plus 2 minutes per day when it comes time for the morning wind and setting of the hands... This watch is my treasure
