Re: Need advice on hand puller

I have the Bergeon hand puller and find it too big for the tiny sub second hands also.
Fortunately the sub second hands come off with the dial easily, you just have to work over an area that safely catches the tiny bugger. You may be able to use a piece of rodico pull it off.

Re: Anybody know what this is? Patriotic Wristlet?

Just guessing, but possibly made to hold a pocket watch to the wrist?

Tank, just noticed that you are a fellow Cincinnatian! That model Elgin is a great looking watch and yours looks like it is in great shape. And that bracelet is a perfect match. Thanks Grumpy, it's some of those great looking watches in your posts that have inspired me to look more closely at Elgin...

Re: WRUW 11/12 thrugh 11/18/2018?

Starting the week off with this recent acquisition. The watch arrived about two weeks ago. I tried a black leather strap, then a brown, looked good, but lacking.
The Kreisler bracelet I purchased on a whim last week came in and after some cleaning and polishing it turned out to be a perfect match.

No it’s not a ladies watch it’s an Elgin E-5
It’s small but I like it.
Great looking watch and doesn't look too small.
When I put on one of my "small" watches they seem so tiny at first, but after I've had it on for a while
it seems like the small watches aren't so small.
