Re: Armored case by Fahys trench watch

Randy, Thank you for posting the images. If only these old Illinois could speak... I wonder what story we would hear? There is a bit of a story just out of the movement and case serials... The movement is ca. 1916 per the pocketwatchdadabase.com website. Although I thought there was a better look-up...

Re: All in the family: platinum Quadron

Thank you for the additional images. Cannot comment on the veracity of a Weber origin. Afire is the resident expert on them. I'm sure he'll find this of interest.

Jack,
You must have ordered early. I thought Fred was only giving out cats.
I noticed the black dog in the last photo with the books.
If I had known, I may have gone with a cat and a dog. :D
Congrats!

Fred sent me a copy of Patrick's cat too with the dog. Sorry you missed out.
