Three watches up for grabs.

First, an early WSC trench watch. It has a good balance, but rust on the hairspring - and when I wound it, the hairspring broke after a short time running! A first for me. Setting is frozen, and I didn't want to force it. The back is dished in, but still snaps on tightly with no edge gaps. No crystal or minute hand. Great for parts or could be revived with a donor hairspring. Sold

Second, a poor man's diver? N510CA, all-stainless case, nice black dial with some paint off at the edges but complete lume. Runs and keeps time according to my timeographer, but not according to the hands! I thought I saw them move a bit, but am uncertain. They do set fine. Sold

Third, a Quadron, 157/8, on a vintage leather band. Not running with a broken balance. Everything else is good. The back is not worn through the gold; the front is worn on the corners. The dial looks original but has issues, as you can see. Sold
