Re: Elgin Henslee Model 2203 Grade 730 from 1961.

Interesting! I actually worked for Sciaky Bros for a time, although 1961 was a little before my time. I was a wire monkey working on electron beam welding equipment assembly. Go a kick out of the stories told about the equipment they built to weld the hulls of I believe the Trident submarine.

Re: Why US postage only

Well, you could always use an Agent or one of the mail forwarders like shipito, gets you a US address for shipping, and you can combine items for the international portion of the shipping. Viabox is another one.

Have fun!

Re: A Helzberg box, a Helzberg Time-o-matic and the Winton Story

Wonderful story, thanks so much for posting this. I am very interested in watches from the 50's, there was so much going on with so many manufacturers and brands. Finding out about various importers and brands is fascinating!

Re: Timex Super Thin - AKA Wafer Thin

Interesting! Looks like the aspect ratio is different between the catalog and the actual item. Illustrators License?

Very nice! I've seen them listed in the catalogs, haven't run across one yet myself, especially in such good condition.
