Re: 1917 WWI Burlington "Aviator" Trench Watch

Congrats for this nice Burlington. I followed this auction but I try to spend few money so I didn't any bid. It's only a hobby.

Re: Burlington Special

I bougth both carbides in a watchmaker's store. I cut a small pieces and sharpen both ends, like I need. Then I use a hand drill like you see in my video.
