Re: Unexpected Find - Oversized Cal 283.

I love when that happens! Nice!
Usually a pile of junkers truly is a pile of junkers.
I found a solid gold longines in a junk pile once. Most junk piles are just parts.
Cool find. Post a pic when you finish it up.

Re: Elgin B W Raymond RR Grade 571 21j Pocket Watch from 1927.

I have a few Raymond Pocket Watches. Not as many as Doug. Yet...lol I am almost done a 571. While the engraving on the plates is more blocky and less attractive than its predecessors it is the most advanced version of the Elgin rail road Pocket Watches with 9 adjustments. Yes 9. Heat Cold Isochronis...

Re: The Elgin-Centura Line - The 100th Anniversary Line

I would like to find this at a local market! The history on the Elgin Centura line is still a bit fuzzy. From what I found all were solid gold. I would take that with a grain of salt as here is another gold filled example. I have not seen this one before so I don’t know if it’s a factory model or so...

Re: WRUW 12/3/17 Thru 12/9/2017

Finally got around to repairing the bent hairsping on this one. It was a frustrating one. I’m carrying it to check my work. Nothing too exciting but it’s different and is a factory cased Elgin. 1934ish Elgin coin watch. BBEFA366-F89C-4F21-91E4-26BD2EC36972.jpeg A835E327-4EDC-4653-AEBA-A635445535CC.j...

Re: Dear EBay Sellers:

All I know is I pay eBay a lot of money to do little to help me when an issue arises. I really think the actual service part stinks for the fees they charge. However I have yet to find anything else that gets that amount of exposure.
