a pair of Walthams

Last month (July 2017) I had a good month with watches. A few eBay purchases, estate/yard sale finds and even scored something good that the Colorado NAWCC regional. In these were two Waltham products: A vintage car clock and a Depollier Khaki wrist watch. I'm not interested in collecting clocks. No...
