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.

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.
