Re: Worst Franken Ever?

This is a great thread. Terrific hearing everyone's perspectives. I recently struggled over a Webster I received, which had a bad balance. I haven't figured out how to fix the balance yet, but I really like the look and size of the Webster compared to other later, smaller models. I happened to also...

Re: Help me learn: why re-dails are mostly ok here?

It seems like only vintage Hamilton collectors are aware that until the late 40s these watches weren't moisture or dust proof. So, when the elements started to affect the dials, a watchmaker would send the dial out for refinishing while he was servicing it. It was a normal part of a complete service...

Re: Automatic Chrono

Value probably minimum of $500, but look at ebay sold listings for pricing. IMO, $800 is a bit much to get it running again. I'd shop around online (there are numerous watch groups on FB with members who service watches). Try VWR in AZ for a quote. They did my Wakmann triple date chronograph years a...

Unusual 980?

Incoming January 2019

Pulled the trigger on a new 40mm Intra-Matic Auto Chrono today from René. A nice companion to the 2017 Intra-Matic 68 Auto Chrono I bought last year.
