Here'a a truly near-mint plain JR with the standard dial. It had seemingly never before been serviced when I got it a 4-5 years ago.
Well Well Well... Look what someone has been holding out on.
Incredible JR Rick.
WOW.
G, I like to keep some powder dry.... :lol:

Re: What are the longest 982/980 watches?

Here's what my collection yielded... Bentley - 39.77 Clark - 42.65 Carlisle = 42.45 (that was surprising, I thought that would win) Dickens - 42.37 Sutton - 42.78 Winthrop - 42.33 (a dark horse few remember) Richmond - 40.30 Gilman - 43.70 Linwood - victor at 43.80mm Thanks Dan! It's clear that the...

Thanks guys! Please keep the sizes coming.

Randy --- just out of curiosity, how long is your Byrd?
I can't believe that Roger let that one slide.

Re: What are the longest 982/980 watches?

Thanks guys! Please keep the sizes coming. Randy --- just out of curiosity, how long is your Byrd? My Byrd is 39.5 mm. The Wilkinson and Ericsson are each 40.0 mm. Of course, they are wider than the 980/982 watches, so have a larger presence on the wrist. That's the main reason I was never very int...

Re: Dial Hall of Shame

Illinios 1.jpg Illinios 2.jpg I think I've now seen 4-5 different examples of this exact same ILLINIOS misspelling. With this in mind, I BET that there were a lot more of them long ago printed from the same plate. I'd LOVE to see the back of these dials to see if it could perhaps be original! For w...

Re: What are the longest 982/980 watches?

these are off the top of my head. Longest gold's would be Richmond, Gilman, Foster, Ardmore, Andrews, Gordon-Barton are all large/long Gold Filled. Carlisle, Clark, Yorktown are the three longest. I'm sure I missed a few. Thanks Mark! I would think these might be up there also: Gold: Bentley, Senec...

What are the longest 982/980 watches?

I have never been an avid collector of 982/980 watches. Can anyone tell me which of these cases are the longest, and how long the longest cases are? (The longest 5 or 6 solid gold and longest 5 or 6 GF models would be nice to know.) I would have thought that this would have been discussed here in th...
