One more out of the to do pile.
Running and keeping time.
As much as I love the 760 761's I always have trouble putting them back together.

BTW, just want to thank Michael for the Thin Thin database and all his hard work on it. Also, thanks to Stryfox for confirming this is a Thin Thin, case 6850 is indeed an "D".

Nice. It's a front loader. Hopefully yours won't have idiot marks on it from someone trying to take the back off. There is no seam. I can't figure out what on earth they were trying to pry on.

I was surprised just how small it is. It's about the same diameter as the Clubman and Wakefield, and 16mm lugs! Almost certainly the smallest ThinThin.

Oh, and my Thin thin in the post above, is a "C", not a D... :oops:

It certainly is small, isn't it. I've seen them listed on the bay under "boys" watch.

You guys are out collecting me again.

Might have to resort a shock and awe campaign.

Nice pick up Carl. I need to link one of Joel's pictures in. It will blow your mind for a Thin-Thin.

I know this is in your database, at least the first dial variant, but here's my pair of Thin Thin C's, case 6850

Michael, awesome Bro!
With those single-tree lugs that one has to be tough enough! :shock:
Did that one have a name or merely an impersonal model number?

That's all there is, 441victor (joel) posted the image ages ago on a driver's thread. I stumbled on it a few weeks ago.

I said it was awesome, it's very Polarus in its look but it's a Thin-Thin.

I have nothing else for it yet but if one pops up on fleaBay it will be a bloodbath for sure.

I had forgotten I had posted that one. I grabbed it from an ebay auction and actually got the model number from an inside case shot. It’s a 4431 and the case is 10k by Queens. Here’s a pic from another auction showing the same model.

Image

The image is a little off with just enough reddish tone to make me wonder if it's colored gold but it's probably just white.

I guess I’ll take the opportunity to show some other unknown models that I’ve shamelessly borrowed pictures of.

This is another 10k Queens cased Thin Thin ‘30’ but no number.

Image

A Thin Thin ‘30’ with no model.

Image

A black dialed model that doesn’t match up to any of the white dialed models. Again no inside case pic.

Image

And a couple of grade 760 dials.

Image

Image

And just to mess with anyone that thought we had the Thin Thin L lineup nailed down, here are two obviously model 4448 cases with different unknown dials.

Image

Image

I’m smitten by this one. A model 4447 Queens 14kgf case with a dial to die for.

Image

And lastly a dial that I believe is another variant of the only ‘27’ L model we have an ad for but in black.

Image

Gotta love Thin Thins for the hours of amusement they’ve provided if nothing else. Joel

I just got this one in. Needs lots of work I think it will be worth it. It's pretty darn cool in my opinion.
