    I honestly never tire of looking at your collection Ethan. That one is stunning!

    This is crazy. I too would be grateful Ethan, given that our watches are only 14 S/N's apart.

    Thank you Marty. It really is stunning. The picture doesn't do it justice as the cliche goes. The colors are so vibrant and deep, the flowers almost seem real. Almost certainly an O'hara dial, (unconfirmed) it is one of only a couple of "window" dials I have seen.

    I waited until Easter Sunday to post this beauty. My Waltham '88 21J Maximus. I know it doesn't have the correct Maximus dial, but it doesn't matter since it will never be sold as long as I'm alive. It is an heirloom to my grandson whose name is the same as the watch. The dial in my opinion...

    Waltham Identification and Confusion?

    Hi Bill. I highly recommend the gentleman who's ad is in the banner on the right of the screen.----> Dave will not only have the correct crystal, he'll install it for you at a reasonable price. While he has your watch in hand, he might even be able to fit it with the correct bow, assuming he...

    Has she seen the bill yet? Because if she does, she'll know they don't all cost the same. LOL!! Super sweet watch Patrick!! Very nice acquisition.

    Model 92 ATC Premier

    After reading this thread I was sure I owned one. Here it is. I don't see the S/N in your list Paul. I was thinking about selling it, now I'm not so sure...

    Maximus Script — An Observation

    With these serial numbers all showing that the watches were manufactured around the turn of the century, I wonder what, if any correlation there might be.

    Maximus Script — An Observation

    Hey DTSPatrick, I just looked at my 12s RM, and it has the exact same script as you're showing. 10M serial as well. I never noticed that before. Very interesting. I'd like to hear what Jerry and the others have to say on this.

    A.W.W.Co. Power Reserve indicator...

    Paul, think of it this way, when it's pointing to "UP", the watch is wound up or tight, and when pointing "DN" it's unwound and needing to be wound. Does that help?

    What Are the Rarest Watches in Your American Collections?

    So cool to see the little brother to mine in post #14 above, except yours is cased and running. I wondered what a cased version would look like, now I know. Beautiful!

    What Are the Rarest Watches in Your American Collections?

    600075. It's the same one we discussed in a PM some months ago. It's from the very first run of this model, Factory ledgers say Nov. of 1871 to Oct of 1872. That is a fascinating example Clint, "Nail set". Ingenious design.

    What Are the Rarest Watches in Your American Collections?

    I wish I had the beautiful watches to compete with what you guys have been posting, but I also realize this isn't a competition. I have quite a few Model 1872's and this is certainly the rarest since it is from the first run of 500 of the model and it is button set. It is the only button set '72...

    Should have asked this sooner

    I believe this could work provided the hole isn't so enlarged that there is "play" or slop between the hole and the arbor. Then there wouldn't be any concern of it going off center like Graham and Skutt were pointing out.
