No ladies watches here yet so I thought I'd add a couple of Nancy's.

1960 cocktail watch, recently overhauled by the Toronto RSC. They still have all the parts for this 1460 movement, the smallest ever made by Rolex.














1937 with original telephone dial and expandable bracelet.

There are some real beauties here. I tried posting this to the Vintage Member page, but I could not get it to stick. Here is my 'Vintage' TT Air King. Age, limited production and rarity give it the Vintage moniker (IMO).

I also have a couple of old Rolex.....

....pocket watches!


This one's late 1930's, British military issue with the basic (very basic) caliber 548. The case back has the correct British broad arrow, originally used by the Board of Ordinance and more recently used by the Ministry of Defense, to indicate British Crown property. Now you know why convicts' uniforms in old British movies looked like they did. .

The B designation indicates that it was a backup timepiece carried in a holder in a vehicle or vessel. This one has been verified by the Toronto RSC, overhauled recently, and it still runs like a champ. No bling on this one, it was designed and built for a purpose.








Here is my most recent acquisition, an early 1930's gold plated. I received it a couple of month or so ago, pretty good shape overall. I might have the case replated, and the dial and hands cleaned up one of these days.....
