Derby, U.K.

I collect wristwatches, very eclectic mix with brand new Hugo Boss and 1920's Elgin! I love Seiko's and Bulova's, anything unusual.

  2. Hi, it has been extensively ground down. Scroll down to find your model shown on this pdf. Cheers, Bob.
  3. COMET was a brand name for mining belt grips, for joining the ends of the belts together.
  4. I also agree that the blades are very worn, and when closed both blades are not touching the inner back as they should, so your surmise that they were of a "billhook" shape is probably correct. Tha...
  5. Thanks UncleRon, I too thought the knives must be worn, but the tang is undamaged, the pivot pin is not loose, and the blades lock tightly into place with a nice "snap". W hat are the chances that two...

  17. Great watch Jev! They still made the Academy Award models though in Canada up until 1968 at least. This ad from Watchophilia that I found, amongst many posted there, has two models, a man's and a la...
  18. Found out through vintage newspaper ads that this called a Legionnaire, and came in several guises
  19. Filmnet, try using 1200-1500 grit wet/dry paper to sand the scratches out, then use Brasso to clear the crystal, as it will look cloudy after the wet/dry paper. This is only for acrylic/plastic cryst...

  21. Hey, glad to give you some proof and back you up Bud LOL! Last ad on it's way.

  28. I wish I was over there, sounds like you are lucky. Our thrift shops in the U.K. don't get much quality watches, best I did was a Oris alarm clock!

  30. Thanks, Kerry!
  31. Thanks, Kerry!
  32. Thanks, Kerry!

  35. Thanks, Kerry!
  36. Thanks, Kerry!
  37. Thank you!
  38. Thanks, Ringo! Mended the spring myself, made one out of a straightened-out coil of a tiny spring, works perfectly. I was quoted $60 with tax for a new one! I told the seller as he said it worked perf...
  39. Thanks, Kerry!
  40. Thank you, thisoldwatch!
  41. Thanks Kerry. Wearing it now, with black alligator band as the original is a little small for me. The pics really don't do it justice.
