    No probs Dave. I like the reference point of the "BUCK" on the dial. You think they were making a point?

    Good one Kerry, I never thought of it that way.
    D.A.A. Buck was involved in the early development of the dollar watch. In 1875, Edward A. Locke of Boston & George Merritt of Brooklyn wanted to produce a watch that would sell for $3-$4 so the common man could have a watch. The cheapest watch at that time was a little over $10.
    In 1877 they met with D.A.A. Buck who was entrusted to making a model watch according to Mr. Locke's specifications. It was a duplex with a rotary movement which turned around in the case once each hour. The main spring was nine feet long, no jewels were used and the total number of parts were 58. These were known as the Waterbury Long Wind Watch. (I will post one later).
