As a long time (50+ years) Charles Fasoldt collector of clocks, watches and microscopes, I am seeking a signed Fasoldt fishing reel to complete my collection.

Please contact me if anyone sees one for sale. I appreciate hearing from the members on anything Charles Fasoldt.

Thank you and thanks for reading. I am always available to talk early American watches--try me!

Also, are there any Charles Fasoldt watch or clock collectors here who collect this maker?

I would like to hear about any new finds that have been discovered recently.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from the members.

Please note: For those unfamiliar with either fishing reels or Charles Fasoldt please email me and I can send you a photo of an example. (This MB & forums are so difficult to load I am fearful to attempt to load a picture here.)

Thanks,

Jon

Hi everyone,

I also specialize in George P. Reed watches, movements, and I NEED A FEW 18s Reed DIALS!

I would like to hear from other collectors and those parties interested in these watches.

Thanks. Email me anytime.

Hi all,

Great, I just received a Reed dial in the mail from a new source of movements and PW parts. This solves one problem, but I reed at least another dial and some original Reed hands.

Thanks for reading my entries, folks.

How about a genuine 18s Mozart dial? Maybe the toughest of all to locate--has anyone within the collecting community ever seen a loose example of this maker?

Looking forward to any responses..................

Thanks for the interest.

To enlighten other clock collectors................were you aware that Terry Clock Company actually produced fishing reels along with Charles Fasoldt? (I wonder if they are as rare as Fasoldt reels?)

This is quite an interesting fact and something to consider, clock collectors!

Thanks for reading.

Dear readers and U.S. Marion collectors,

Has anybody ever seen the following grades of watches signed I. W. Frost, Cyrus H. Loutrel, J. L. Ogden or E. C. Hine?

In 85 collective years neither the late F. H McMillan nor I have encountered any of the above three named Marions. I would like to see watches or photographs of same for research purposes. Any help is sincerely appreciated.

Thank you.

Jon Hanson, nawcc#8801, U.S. of Marion collector who would like examples of the above to complete my collection!

Hello members and friends,

I am always seeking rare, original or unusual Otay pocket watches either for purchase or research.

I always look forward to collectors notes or comments on items of interest to me.

Happy hunting.

I know it is a longshot but am still avidly searching for an all original C Fasoldt fishing reel for my collection.

I will gladly send a photo of one if someone is honestly on the track of one for me.

THANKS SO MUCH.

Probably my most difficult want (to locate) is A GENUINE DON J. MOZART dial for an 18s Mozart watch movement I have...............

Please email or call me if you have one to sell for a top price.

Thanks,

Jon

Hi readers,

To add to my current wants I am looking for an Independent Watch Co barrel bridge like ones on the Mark Twain grade for a restoration job I am doing.

Thanks.

Hi collectors,

My current watch need is a nice 14 or 18K solid gold Benedict Bros/NY hunting case for an 1872 movement made by Waltham.

I hope someone can locate either a case or a complete watch for a research project I am doing.

Thank you!

Hi friends and collectors,

Another want for my collection--I want a choice 18s US Waltham OF "The President" with 21Jewels. Must have the wonderful 2 tone finish NOT washed out.

Thank you very much and thanks to all who have read and responded to my wants here and my many Nawcc friends I assist regularly with their American watch parts and problems.
