    I told my neighbor a few weeks back I collect old pocketwatches as he was at an Indian artifact show in Owensboro, KY. Then this shows up at my front door yesterday, I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story.

    To be honest, I am not sure I have seen one like this before, requires a SR626 battery. I have about every size battery besides this one which must be the most common watch battery size. Anyway, it made me chuckle. Thanks, Brad Maisto, KY Floral #44 Secretary
    P. S. Any other cute stories like this that other members would like to share?

    It is the thought that counts not the value

    When I tell a neighbour I collect watches, I get inundated with old and new watches which they just discovered in a box in the attic... with a request for information and valuation. I have even had a couple of requests to sell it for them on Ebay :(
