An old friend of mine Bob Schmidt, the auctioneer, recently gave a nice talk at a Boston Watch and Clock meeting in Watertown, Ma. Included in his nice talk, including books on the subject, he spoke of skeleton clocks and kits for same. Now, I am not a clock collector, but I DO LIKE CLOCKS. One interesting aspect recently discussed on the pocket watch board was the discussion of FAKE dials used to profiteer and supposedly use to replace hairlined originals. I now have the answer--COLLECT SKELETON CLOCKS--less dial problems! Maybe I can get some of the watch folks to SWITCH to clocks!
