Re: FRED'S BOOK: Illinois Watch & Its Hamilton Years - WHO GOT EM... CHECK IN

I picked-up my set on Tuesday from my PO Box. I am slowly working my may through the volumes. This will take a long time, I think. So far, I love it! (And while I had already read much of it, seeing it now all complete is compelling!) The big problem is that I have about 30-feet of various art and w...

looks fake to me. show pic of the movement.
Which movement?
It's that thing inside the case that (you likely already know) is stamped either "Made in Hong Kong/Taiwan/China" or perhaps merely "ROLEX" about 25 times. :D :lol:

Re: 2018 NCAA Tournament "WatchFanatics" Group

Is there a list of all of the prior-year winners? (We need a plaque! Or perhaps a travelling trophy. LOL)

Re: Hamilton Hands

It's odd that these image vanished...as I never hosted my images at a 3rd part location. I will locate the images and replace them.

Re: 1931 Perry - WGF/YGF?

Here are 2 pics of a Consul (sub-6) dial and 607 movement inside a nickel "spacer". (The other 2 Nickel-stamped Consuls on each side have different movements inside them.) The solid 14K section of the center included the lugs and gold around the center spacer was removed before I purchased this move...

Re: 1931 Perry - WGF/YGF?

The Illinois Consul, for example, is found sometimes with all three pieces in 14K solid gold and sometimes with solid bezel and back but base metal midsection. In the latter event, it is always so mark...

Re: 1931 Perry - WGF/YGF?

All of this said, there has never been a discussion of 2-tone Perrys (that came out about 5 years later and are not solid gold). The Square B and Perry coexisted for one year, 1931. Is the Perry a Fahys-cased model? What would be helpful is to collect serial numbers of seemingly two-tone watches. I...
