  11. Eh no rush kinda like the battered look. If I do fiddle with it won't be shooting for perfection anyhoo... Just less obvious
  12. Running fairly dang steady if left alone n upright.. 12 hours untouched today.. Might try to cosmetically fill the chip with some appliance touch up paint.. Dont need perfection no way I can duplica...
  13. Ok in my wandering Google looking for any info I think it's Swiss... Thinking possibly semi rare... Found a couple with the same patent info with split second hands.. So maybe mine was the budget mode...

  15. Nope no print cept patent date
  16. When I was fresh out of high school got a security job and I actually used one nearly like this... Mid 80s..thing looked like an antique then.... But that's just people hating it had to be built like ...

  18. Woohoo! 5min now think I got a winner!
  19. I hate spell check... Dumbass is what I was
  20. Oh one reason looks so clean is I was a dumbest and popped the case apart.... Roof had a dent I wanted to move to the back... Oh my that's fun you get 2 pieces in sneak the 3rd one in the first 2,fall...
  21. Afraid to hit it too hard with anything the crystal n face are put together almost like a tin can I don't wanna wash any dirt into where I can't get too
  22. Kinda love the dueling pistol cufflinks too hehehe watch is more my thing but they are dang cool
  23. Not this one.... Says on the front 100 day.... Wouldn't bet on it.... It just seems to barely tick... Even tho pretty accurate doesn't seem to have any extra momentum... Maybe 1/4 turn past the tick e...
  24. Thanks racer n Bruce I've discovered if you don't plan on accuracy you get decent results with fidling with these.... And even with my ham handed smacking it about... Its actually running halfway accu...
  25. I'm not the one selling it thinking of buying it
  26. thanks ive been wearing it every day since i got it running n polished the crystal some,..nice thing about digitals is no gears to get dirty,.hard to read in the sunshine tho! ,..anyone know what they...
  27. is the number on the movement or the case? wont be the same number LOVE those old walthams i find em hard to pass up when i spot one heheh very very cool
  28. boy not sure,..id talk to someone who actualy specializes in em first id push the lever to the center position n see what it does ,.. counter intuitive i know but if the lever was cranked over hard it...
  29. how minor?out of range on the small fast slow adjust lever on top of the movement?gentle adjustments usualy all you need just make sure to lock pendulum w the lever on the bottom front first.have a pr...
  30. thanks pops,...thought it was sumptin like that knew were older than 1972 know the music is very elaborately scored

  32. well Willard stopped making clocks in 1848 so its at LEAST that old,..very sought after banjo clocks like that were the first commercially successful clocks in the us think he made the first 8 day mov...
  33. https://billsclockworks.com/opinstructions/400Day.htm have a lot of the springs here hard to know what it takes on yours

  35. cool lil clock looks like a lux open heart movement wonder who was copying whom mauthe or lux or if they shared technology,..http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/113818-lux-open-heart-or-heartbeat...
