Re: Here's an Interesting One

Yes, very interesting! ;) In fact, there was a thread on it earlier this year: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10360&hilit=Piping

WRUW 10/15 through 10/21/2017?

For church today I wore a Gruen Orné 4:

Mr. Toad, who knew this model was my "Grail" watch, gave it to me for my birthday last year.

Re: What do you do when your Movado Ermeto wears out?

Well, this is a lot better than a "pendant watch" I once saw, which had been a Gruen Carré!

Re: Fred's New Book...

Could the book be finished and on it's way to the publisher? Looks possible.
Yes, the book is indeed finished and is now in the hands of the publisher. (Pray without ceasing!)

Perhaps, if he finds some time, Fred will drop in here and give further updates . . .

Re: Marquis

I always enjoy your beautiful photography!

The "Marquis" is a model I'm very fond of, and it looks as if you got a lovely case. (You can probably improve the dial with cleaning, but patina doesn't generally bother me -- particularly if it's an original dial.)

Re: 1929 Mate

I'm very fond of dials with interesting patina, so I like the evenly speckled effect on yours. Cheers!

Stunning watch, Grumpy, and what interesting provenance!

Happy birthday, and best wishes for a great year ahead!

My watch of the day was a little Gruen Orné 3:

Re: My first Illinois - Advice/Info please

Well I scored a NOS Beau Dial from Fred and I couldn't be happier with the results.
I reckon so -- your Beau Brummel looks FANTASTIC!!!
