Hello, this is regarding a post 4 posts ago by 441victor, 3rd photo. The watch is question is actually not a 760 powered watch, it's actually powered by a Swiss AS sorted movement; Elgin Cal. 796. I originally purchased it a few Years ago thinking that it was a 760 variant, It's actually a very interesting movement in it's own right. The watch itself is a front loading 10KT Gold case, don't know if the case ever housed a 760, maybe someone can shed some light. Sorry that I didn't say as much when I originally posted that picture. Here's a few fresh photos of the watch and a picture of a spare Cal. 796 That I also own. I've also attached a picture of Two of my 761 powered watches to keep with the spirit of this thread.

So does this mean I'm done collecting thin thins or do I just need to buy a bigger box?
