    American Calendar:

    P/L, I agree with your description. But would you also say that it's a Swiss Fake frame that someone applied the Calendar patent to, ie, that someone made good use of a Swiss Frame?

    Do you have a "rare" or "unusual" Elgin pocket watch?

    I've not taken it down. It appears that only the top of the top plates are "silvered" (what would be a better term for this example?). If I take it down I'll post pics!

    (Elgin) Private Label Research

    I'm also a Dave C., but I know you're referring to our moderator, Dave Coatsworth! My earliest examples of pat regs with double sunk dials are Stuart models in the 61,xxx number range. And the next one I have is a grade 101 private label in the 215,xxx range. But the problem is that we...

    Hamilton 3992B

    I'd imagine that the "adj 2 posn" designation for an HS3 Deck Watch was a minimum number of adjustments, and maybe the lowest number of adjustments from among the approved HS3 deck watch suppliers? I've seen WWII era Elgin grade 581's, with 21(22) jewels and adjusted to 5 positions, that were...

    An Omega strange key wind movement

    I'd normally defer to Enrico, but for this one I have to say that they may have been very popular in England, but examples of this Omega keywind are very rare, IMHO!

    Bigelow, Kennard & Co.

    None of the three I show have Bigelow dials ... I was responding to the interesting discussion about the 12s model 1894 side by side comparisons made here, and an issue with the pics being available, but if the moderator wants to move or copy my post to a 12s Riverside thread that's ok with me! :)

    18 size Bunn Special Research Thread

    I think these were only made in two time frames, something like 1912-13 and 1919, rather than there being continuous production. So differences between the two time frames might be expected? And aren't the serial numbers provided by marking_time model 5 rather than model 4 movements? My...

    Tracking Elgin grade 150 pendant set to grade 277 lever set conversions

    I appreciate all of the detail you've provided 49stude63, and that which you continue to provide - as well as your thoughts, speculations, etc. I speculate that some number of PS 150's were held in stock to continue to meet the retail need for the already well advertised gr 150 PS product, and...
