I will trade someone a 311 with good balance, no dial, stem or hour wheel, for like watch in a 500 caliber. I am looking for the nice little plate that holds the stem proper in place. These seem to strip out, but the 311 I am trading does not have this plate either. Pix provided later, but want to see if anyone is interested first. Welp, gotta go play Army!!!

People you thought were your best friends will stab you in the back to your face!

Love them anyway.

I take that back.............the balance is NO GOOD!!!!!! It was so full of dirt that after I cleaned it, it revealed a broken pivot, now that's dirty!!!
