Re: Vancott, 10k & 14k

I've seen at least one Secometer C in a box labeled as a Vancott, posted on this forum, with the case and 748 movement serial numbers matching the paper Vancott label on the outer box. So it seems Hamilton named the earliest version or some version of the Secometer C as the Vancott.

The postman always rings twice...

Today I was anxiously awaiting the two parcels containing these rare ones. I had another nice Spur earlier this year, but it has been several years since I've had a blue enamel Elgin Model 212.

Re: Advice On Viscount Model Watch

Very nice watch.

Your photos are good. With a few more photos from different angles, I think it would bring between $500 to $800 on eBay.

You could start it at $9.99 and let the auction run.

The one on the right is a Morley, I believe. The one on the left is a Mason, again that's a guess.
Your guesses are correct.

Re: 2018 NAWCC PacNorthwest Regional

I am going and will have a table with wristwatches for sale, plus maybe a bunch of pocket watch movements from scrapped cases. Be sure to stop by and say hello.

Holy smokes, nice watches! I like how you have the rounded leather band on that Hamilton Oval.
It only took me 25 minutes to get the band on the Oval... and it's a thin, soft pigskin. I've often wondered if they were originally sold with strap that had special curved ends.
