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! Spent about twenty minutes at the end of the evening last night trying to put a screw into a hole, couldn't get it started. Thought it might have been cross ...

Re: Different Vintage Experience

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!
Neat bottle, too.

Re: WOYB - What is on Your Bench May 2017

Ooops! I had this one confused with the watch that had the rubber tire around it. Still very cool, a predecessor to the ubiquitous quartz stick on that you used to see everywhere, from a car dash to the grips on my ski poles.

Thanks for showing!

Tonight, is this Lord Elgin Panorama from the late 50s. It is on a Drema center expansion band. It uses the 23 jewel, 724 movement, adjusted to 6 positions.
That, sir, is one kick butt watch. No bezel at all! fantastic band, one of my favorite styles. Very jealous.

Re: WOYB - What is on Your Bench May 2017

Very nice, I really like the rally(?) dial, and the tire :)

How was it supposed to attach to the dash? Stickum?
