Re: I think I'm gonna have to buy this

buying one is too easy and boring...build one from an old instrument panel!

add some led lights that chase via an rf sensor that triggers when you pull into the garage.

That's either insane or a movement swap.... :o
no a swap, that is all original. and yeah insane to think what they charge for these watches.
and while I was checking it for time keeping I noticed the sweep is not clicking on the seconds marker correctly.

Re: WRUW 11/25/18 Thru 12/01/18

1930's Art Deco by Gross - Swiss made 15 jewels 2 adjustment shock proof movement. It took some extra work but, seems to be running quite well last two days.
Last step will be to cut a new crystal and maybe lume the hands.
