Built from NOS Parts

#1 Post by JerseyMo » Mon Aug 22, 2016 6:02 pm

Almost 100% NOS parts and the only modification is the use of the red sweep.

NOS - Case with crystal and bezel ring, Crown Stem, #25 movement, date wheel.

Used - Sweep, date ring, movement spacer.

How does it look?

Thanks Carl, I just ordered a Red, White, & Blue Nylon Strap for it. That should really make the dial pop!

Yes that will look good.
I have a local guy that that does antiques and such. He calls me when he finds watches to ask me if he should buy them.
I had him pick me up a lot of timex watches. Probably a bunch of poor stuff but the price was right. I'll probably have some questions when I get them.
There was a newer indeglo in the lot that he liked so I told him to keep it as a finders fee.
