Re: This Will Be Fun To Watch

What's so special about it? I know there is considerable pricing differences for the various Rolex Subs (Military, Red, etc.)

But, I always thought the Tudor's took a back seat on value? This is getting into Paul Newman range...

Re: Elgin e-301 legionnaire

I had just put one back in service (well, my watch guy got it running). I really like the simple style and the size of it. I have mine on a horween chromexcel strap. http://i916.photobucket.com/albums/ad8/K_P_L/Mobile%20Uploads/D193EBA4-A169-4A59-91C9-A64F31F6B71E_zpsorxmhhbu.jpg http://i916.photobu...

Re: Advice On Fixing This Watch

With a new crystal and an overhaul, you'd have a nice watch and a working family heirloom. You can probably get this done for around $200. This would be around what it what you could pick one up that is working, but it wouldn't have the family history.

I'd fix it!

Re: Illinois Mate - back in service (finally!)

I'm still amazed when people find something like that - how does that survive for so many years??

Everyone's examples are much better than mine :( I guess there's always time to upgrade...

Re: Incoming sterling cushion

I cleaned the case, installed a NOS dial that was for sale on eBay (what are the chances?), and hands from a parts movement. I need to straighten the lugs, and it's off for repair and a new crystal. http://i916.photobucket.com/albums/ad8/K_P_L/Mobile%20Uploads/7EE4CB09-F89F-40C7-AB77-2E744167FA71_zp...
