    Unusual dial on Waltham 1892

    I have a Waltham 1892 open face watch with a dial that has the seconds hand at the 9 o'clock position. It's an all original, Waltham signed, triple sunk dial, just like another 1892 I have with the seconds at the normal 6 o' clock location. Both watches are OF movements with serial numbers...

    Railroad Brotherhood Logo's used on Watch Cases

    Does anyone have any information on the different logos used by the various Union Brotherhoods. Many were reproduced & put on members watch cases. Most will know about the "Brotherhood of Trainsmen Engineers" but as I understand it there were over 50 such unions. I hope someone has compiled a...

    I have several project clock cases that require that all or part be painted black. I have tried Black spray paint as well as automotive lacquer. Has anyone had better luck with some other product? What about sealing the wood? One small case has door trim that I did using Plastic model paint...

    Howard Series 11 dial help

    Thanks for the help. I got it off ok. Hope I don't have to do that very much. Seems like a design made to sell dials. I wonder how many are broken while being removed? Virgil

    slowing down strike speed

    Doug & Kenny: Thanks for the tips. This clock is a 1960's era Korean spring driven movement. Nothing special, just picked it ip real cheap at an antique shop. Like I said, it is working just as it should. My only reason of slowing the strike speed is a personal preference. I think it just...

    Jersey City Appreciation Society

    Hello Rich: I have been out of touch for about a month with a computer virus. I am glad there are other NYS collectors out there. For about 3 years now, I have been researching this company and building a database of their watches. To date, I have close to 2000 entries as well as over 1000...

    Hayword Watch Co.

    Jayne: In my research on New York Standard watches, that name has come up a time or two, but I have never had a look at one. Can you post a picture of the movement, then perhaps someone can ID your watch? Virgil

    LaSalle pocket watch

    I have 2 or 3 La Salle watches and all were made by New York Standard. The La Salle's I have are in 18 size & 6 size. The name "La Salle" will be on the larger winding wheel which by the way is a non functional wheel. Most serial numbers for this series are over 8 million and less than 8.2...

    New York Standard

    Wayne: I just realized I made an error on my post. Here is the fix. All series 94 & 1594 (BC prefix) are Hunter movements. All series 95 & 1595 (BD prefix) are open face movements. Production for BC prefix is about 100,000. The BD prefix is correct at about .5 million. And of course, all BC &...
