    Some time ago I bought a grab-bag and I am still amazed about the goodies I found. I have tried to find more bags worth buying but it never happened again:(

    This watch was also in the bag. The watch shows some signs of wear but only if you take a closer look. I believe the markings are as following "17 Jewels Incabloc Montauk" - I don't have the watch in front of me and my photographic skills are in dire need of improvement.

    What I love about the watch is that it keeps time perfectly! You wind it up and it runs like new. I also like it because it reminds me of a watch my father bought me in the late seventies.

    I know that the watch is not worth anything but to me it doesn't matter. I prefer it over my quartz one because it doesn't need a battery!

    Thanks for looking:)

      It's very nice freiheit :) I love grab bags too. I found a brass Victorian Intaglio brooch in one of mine ! As you say it's never happen again.
