    On feeling good!

    Recently I sold a watch Howard Coles Escapement in a case made for it by the Keystone Watch Case Co.

    The watch went to Massachusetts, from there it will go to the real buyer in Hong Kong.
    The agent for the Hong Kong buyer sent me the below email:

    Dan

    Watch arrived safely--Wound as you suggested (Left hand wind).
    Nice looking watch-
    I think my friend will be happy with it-I surely would be.
    Thanks again
    Bob

    THE POINT: When good pictures of the timepiece are shown with a full and honest description and history of the watch…it lends so much to the credibility of the seller. As to his effort in selling a watch, rather scarce-to-rare in fine running condition using our NAWCC 4-SALE Forum is a service that leads to friendships far beyond the sale of a watch or clock.

    Glad it worked out for both of you! Sometimes parting with a fine timepiece is a tough thing to do :)
