How do!


Now working on another project and I am looking for a few things This is a nice 826 that needs a seconds shaft, pinion gear, retainer, and sweep. I will look other places for a case, but this is a good starting point. Also, the "Find year from style number file" puts this at 1952. This screams art deco!!! What is the real year here, or am I going nuts (again!)?

Warmest to all ticking hearts!!!

Tomas G!
How be thee?

I don't think you're going nuts, you had already arrived at the nuts station long ago.

How about we start with some pictures? One of the watch itself, movement, and one of the inside of the caseback (where the Style Number is located).

Those will help greatly with an ID, date, parts, etc.

Great to hear from you recently. Inspirational to hear of your many congoing restorations in progress.

As soon as I get my camera on my phone working again, I'll send some photos, but I can from what I can tell, this 826 is somewhere around 1920-1930s. Thanks Mike, is always so very good to hear from you and know you are doing well.

Warmest Regards,

Tomas
