    Recently bought only Rockford I now own because of movement appearance and fine quality service work by Dave Cooper. Not rare or valuable but nice mechanical jewelry. Any comments appreciated. artbissell

    Nice one Art, love the DS dial!!

    Number is close to mine shown in a Chicago coin case.

    Note reg arm over to scale on mine, 67 movements from you. Not marked adjusted,
    as it's a 13 jewel.

    Yes, the plate finishing department employees must have had a free hand at choosing designs.

    Very nice one, Art. Interesting that this is your first Rockford. What brands do you generally collect?

    A very complete Gruen p.w. collection has been a little inadequately reported here. Presently mainly Walthms. artb
