As seen in these identification threads. I am downsizing and trying to find good homes for these. The only one in the threads not for sale is the YGF 676 - that one has gone to my wife.

1. WGF 676/181 - good balance but missing hairspring, missing hands
2. Guildite 181/155 - runs, missing stem/crown
SOLD 3. Guildite 183/155 - runs
SOLD 4. YGF 183/137 - runs, missing stem/crown
5. WGF 181/137 - runs with pressure on crown, stops shortly after

Timekeeping not observed. Watches only observed for 5 minutes. Setting works on all watches with crowns. For watches without crowns, I consider it running if I shake it and it keeps ticking for more than 15 seconds with escape wheel advancing.
