Classic watches, watchmaking, antique tools, history, vintage ephemera and more!
Here are a few of my favorites!
Elgin Grade 288
This one, made about 1921, in an open case nickel case is quite typical.
There's a fair amount of cracking in the dial, but it just adds to the character and history of the watch, in my opinion.
