    George Jones: Not just a lady's man!

    I am a watch guy, but I can enjoy a nice clock once in a while too. I took this photo yesterday of a buddy of mine's 12 foot George Jones Astronomical Regulator. It is a good thing it is not for sale because it would not fit in my house anyway. Enjoy! JohnCote www.interstatetime.com

    February Watch of the Month

    The February 2006 interstatetime.com Watch of the Month is probably more like the Watch of the Year. I have been collecting for several decades and I have rarely seen a watch of this quality and importance. You can read about it in detail at the link below, but I will start here by saying that...

    Interstate Time Watch of the Month

    I used to post a Watch of the Month on my website every month. I quit doing it a couple of years ago because...well I don't know why...maybe too much other stuff to do! Anyway, people have bugged me about it, so I have decided to start up Watch of the Month again...at least for a while. Here is...

    Digital Camera Movement Photo

    Given the discussion of watch movement photos in another post, I thought I would post a digital camera photo I took of a pretty watch movement. I have posted photos of this watch before, but this one has been worked on a little more to get over some of Jon Hanson's gripe about not shooting it...

    illinois pocket watch

    Was this watch stolen from you? Do you know that the number on the inside of the case probably has no relation to the movement/works of this watch, because these cases are interchangeable and the movements were ususally sold un-cased by the factory? JohnCote President, Indiana Chapter 18 -...

    Hamilton Pocket Watch

    My bet is that you are reading the serial number on the movement wrong. This is really easy to do on a 950. Please go back and read it with a loupe. I am sure you will find that you had it almost right. JohnCote President, Indiana Chapter 18 - NAWCC Member Chapter 149 (Member #105)...

    Hamilton 940 Hands

    John, the catalog number listed in the Swigart book for 18 size Hamilton hands is 8001 for the pair. The illustration, however is for the delicate style of hands, not RR hands. I don't know of any supply house that has these hands in stock. If you find some originals, at a reasonable price, I...

Just going in his store in downtown Clayton will blow your mind. I can't reccomend him highly enough. Tell him I sent you. He...

    Lever set Illinois movement - need case.

    Kemp, There is only one model of 6 size Illinois movement, and it is a hunter (winds at 3:00 oclock). There are about 19 different grades of this one model. Yours is a grade 164. I can't say that in all the years I have collected Illinois watches, I have ever had to look for a 6 size case, so I...
