    Chain question

    I highly recommend something with a Spring Ring for positive retention if being worn with pants or jeans. I have heard quite a few complaints of the above chain not being secure enough, and the owner not noticing, until the watch hits the ground. Just my opinion based on unfortunate...

    Hampden John C. Dueber Grade?

    What is the approx SN? If before they regulated what watches could be used on Railroad, then it could have been. After they regulated it, (if not grandfathered in) it would have had to have had an Arabic dial, and at least 17 jewels, and adjusted to 5 positions, etc. The staff and roller...

    Waltham Pocket Watch to be featured on CSI: New York

    Kent, That was my concern, even though this is an extremely common 12s Waltham. In fact, I would not sell them the watch unless it shipped with the extra case, extra parts movement, new (modern 6497) hands, etc. So, if they did bust up the watch, they did it for fun more than necessity. In...

    Waltham Pocket Watch to be featured on CSI: New York

    We'll see, but I am not sure if you read this part: The watch also shipped with a "stunt double" parts watch and a bunch of extra hands to help ensure the real watch did not get damaged for the show.
