July Incoming 2018

#1 Post by Just 1 More » Wed Jul 11, 2018 4:29 pm

A few days ago during my routine Kreisler search on eBay I came across what I believe to the Original bracelet for the Palisade it was listed by itself I quickly checked the seller's other listings and sure enough he had listed the Palisade, I sent him a message asking if he removed this band from the watch he replied back that Yes he purchased the watch from an estate sale & remove the bracelet. I scored the bracelet for $29.95 plus shipping I was the only bidder but was out bid for the Palisade :( but I had a back up I called Mark & he said Yes I have one sitting on my work bench which I purchase. Now here's when the debate has been who the correct maker of the bracelet :?: I had thought and stood by it was Hadley because my Gold Palisade I purchased came with a Hadley I believe Tom or Randy said theirs had Kreisler so it very well may be both here's both Palisade front & back views of the band both have the same style tri fold out claps.

My Palisade has a similar, but not correct bracelet.

Yes Jim, my YGF Palisade has a Kriesler band on it. The tri-fold clasp looks like your WGF band. I remember we discussed this a few years ago, maybe at Mark's?

Noticed something in a case lot that looked familiar.
Matched the blurry pictures of the engravings to a Square Cut Corner Large, in nickel (I asked the seller to transcribe what the caseback said.) Bought the lot, figure I could use it even if I was mistaken and it’s 6/0.
It arrived, yep it was 3/0. Fred hooked me up with a dial (thanks!) so now it’s just a matter of getting a 1928-ish movement and a stem. Stem’s gonna be the fun part.
This is one of two known examples of this in nickel.
Will make a full post when it’s done.
