    Wild animal cases

    Hey Jer! Nothing against Alice or dandelions...but I think perhaps the Chinese dragon is closer. :)

    Watch case polishing tools

    It's a matter of restoration I believe...saving what is there and making some repairs is enough for me...most of the time a "looking like new" highly polished case does not look right in my eyes. How long can you hide the brass on a GF case anyway? :) It's making the best of what is left...

    Looks to be a part of something larger,and not a tool.

    Hamilton ELITE?

    Jerry has made me curious! Also-do the Hamilton DS full signature dials with a period signify something? Just asking, friends- I'm not at all sure...I seem to have a half memory floating around. :)

    Favorite hand sets

    Hey Jim, I like that Doc's watch a lot,and wish I had one. I'll do anything I can to help,of course. But let's clarify a little on that "open Fleuer De Lis hand" as I called it. I honesty can't tell you if it is Swiss or not,and when I called it an "open Fleur De Lis" hand I should have...

    Favorite hand sets

    Excellent! -And I agree,the hands should always compliment the dial. Usually,you see the dial and hands first. Gotta make a good impression,right?

    Another ebay frustration

    Just a thought here...any pocket watch that only ran 20 hours can't be in great shape. It needs some work. On the other hand,it might be only a little work,and worth the time/money. If you clean her up,maybe replace a mainspring,you might have a winner. I know that's not for everyone. But if...

    Bluing Pocket Watch Hands - Marty B.

    The marble bed will adhere to a flat brass surface after being pre-heated,and you can flip the hands off without losing it. The plus of using that marble bed over and again is something I really like. Also,you can let your water evaporate once in a while and save that marble for reuse...

    Bluing Pocket Watch Hands - Marty B.

    Dan,are the tips catching and snapping? Maybe your range of motion is too great? You must not pass the hub or tip with the paper/finger.
