What did I miss out on?

#1 Post by mrcardigan » Mon Jul 11, 2022 4:15 pm

So, today did that classic of finding something i was considering bidding on, then utterly forgetting it was close to the end time.

This was the only photo, and description was non existent. What did I miss? It went cheaper than i was going to bid...

Kenilworth? Not a huge miss. Unless I’m wrong and it was something more special.

I thought both those, but wasnt sure and ruled them out. The case looks too straight for a kennilworth, and the crown is slightly recessed. Into the side. Oh well, missed anyway 🤣

I'm sticking with Kenilworth. They do have recessed crowns and I'm guessing it's the odd angle of that photo that makes it look less curvaceous. But maybe you've seen more pictures of the watch and confirm that it's definitely not a Kenilworth.

That was the only photo they posted. Yeh, that was my final conclusion too. Glad it wasn't anything rarer I missed. Couldnt see anything else in Fred's books it could have been.

(Relieved really, i have about 40 Illinois and Hamilton watches waiting in the resto queue as it is! 🤣🤣🤣)
