Show us your favorite timepieces; Sun, 29 March 2020 18:56

Sure has quiet here lately, hope everyone is safe and sound. Show us your favorite timepieces and give some of your personal reasons why.

One of my favs is the VT Huntsman, I love unique lugs and this one fits the bill. I also like the roman numeral design of the era. I have many dials like this in other models. I'm also a fan of patina.

When it rains, it pours

Cal 315 & cal 705; Tue, 10 December 2019 01:52

I purchased this case about 5 years ago thinking I'd have no problem finding a movement/dial for it.


HA! I've been searching since then and just this past week finally found the same strap model but with plenty of wear. The dial was a mess with dirt & old lume. Cleaned it up last night.


A couple weeks prior to finding the replacement, I found this model, intending to use its movement/dial as my replacement, but now it will remain as is.


Moral: Never give up. Cool

The crystal/dial size is the same for both 315/87 & 705/87

This is the first little Gruen cocktail watch I ever purchased.
The bracelet I purchased separately for this.
It was the only watch I had posted to the Other forum before it disappeared without warning.

Wristlet 47

Cal 827ss (826); Thu, 21 November 2019 01:18

Model name : Wristlet 47 (MB designation)
Type : sweep second wristlet
Period/date : early-mid 1920s
Gender : Ladies'

Case Maker : Wadsworth
Case Material : 14k white gold filled
Case Serial : 6645601; 6645633
Case Style no : N/A ; hinged casebacks

Caliber : 827ss - movements stamped 826
Movement Maker : Gruen Guild (Aegler)
Movement Serial: 1465889; 1506869

The 1st one I found I thought the case was non original.
After finding the second one with the same case & both very close numerically,
and matching the Masterbook entry, I now believe the cases are original.

I'll update with photo of dial backs when I remove them.
