    Elgin 16 sz with winding indicator.

    Hello all. I have searched for this but cant find a answer so asking here. Are Elgin pocket watches, 16 sz with winding indicators, not seen as often. Than say Waltham, did Waltham produce more than Elgin did? I recently acquired a 16 sz, B W Raymond, 19 jewels with a winding indicator. So it,s...

    Assemble, front or back

    Working on this clock and ready to assemble. Cant see under the back plate to set up strike train. Since the posts are on back plate, would i be better off to assemble the front plate, then put back on and put the pivots into their holes.

    Value of a GB 400 day clock.

    I have seen these sell for up to 500 Canadian. I realize prices realized can vary a fair bit. This clock is in running shape, all i can see is a few chips on the bottom edge of glass dome. I paid 50 dollars Canadian. I realize that was a very good price for one. My other GB 400 day clock is not...

    French crystal regulator

    A woman came to me today with a nice French crystal regulator. Nice looking clock with a mercury pendulum. Problem is the fly was lying in the bottom of the case. I was wondering how the fly could have gotten out of its position and fell out of the movement. Did a quick look at the fly and it...

    S Haller battery clock

    I fully understand about the clock needing needing a complete cleaning and not apply oil to pivots, to make it run reliably. BUT has anyone ever experienced a clock of this type starting up on its own? Yesterday i walked past it the pendulum was not moving. This morning i walked by and the...

    I saw a Waltham watch, so the seller says. Its marked on the dial but the movement is not marked Waltham. Did waltham not put their name on all watch movements. This is a early keywind movement. Thanks.
