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: Trying to get dial off movement

I would add the "oh it is just about mid-night so just one more minute and I'll get this fixed" "Oh.... s$#@ what did I just do" :shock: Yup!

Selling the family home can be a stressful experience, glad to see that you got it done, and had a wonderful way of punctuating the end of an era!
