    Good day everybody Today I was sitting here debating on what to tackle ...well the first three photos are from an Ebay listing I won the other day. Watch didn't work, crystal was missing and hands had been broken off at the post. First thing was to tear the beast down and see what I had to deal with....okay, nothing seems to far out of whack. so tear into a touch farther....Yup, there's the problem....main spring drum had been messed with and wasn't seated in position correctly. Heck this far into the movement, tore down the remained and set pieces and parts in the denture cleaner tub and turned it on.
    After that was done, started the reassembly process and serviced with synthetic oil as I went along. Came down to putting it back in the case.... but first needed to locate a set of hands and a crystal, the crystal wasn't to hard to locate...a set of Ingersoll "Whit" hands, that's a different story...so robbed a set of hands off era correct "Buck" and sat down and painted them white... pure entertainment for a blind old man... Well anyways, here's the end result...1934 "Blinking Eye" Big Bad Wolf & Three Little Pigs Ingersoll Pocket watch, in running order.

      Ironic about that wolf, right ?
    5. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      He's sending you a wink or two...The Best Part about this.....basically paid very little, used spare pieces and parts to make it run again, and several hours of "Therapy" that didn't have to pay for...all good
    6. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      How does the story go ? He never did get that third pig ?

      Thanks Dave, rebirth of a child's treatment from years gone by.
      @ Eye4, I thought all three survived together in the brick house....now I'll have to check the story :-)
    9. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      The Disney version all three pigs survive...whew, I was worried for them for a bit
    10. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      So then it appears, the wolf went goofy ???
    11. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      LOL Eye4, might say he went "WEE-WEE-WE" all the way home :-)...oops that's the Geico pig...
      Thank You bladerunner22 for looking in, always appreciated!!
    12. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      Sorry ... Looks like the wolf turned dippy ... Then goofy ... See the transformation ???
    13. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      Sort of....but my thoughts...have you been in my meds? Sorry just joking, I haven't been giving anyone crude for a few days, and you won out... I won't throw anymore out there,,,
    14. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      Lol ...
    15. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      Stare at the wolf long enough and you will see Goofy ...

      LOL,Perry, thanks for the support and the chuckle.... I need a few more "Smalls" to fill up some space, so while I'm stuck here at home, I've been working out of the "Junk" pile and this is what I'm ending up with....only 587 more junkers to decide which one to tackle next :-)

      Awesome job on this Kerry
    21. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      Trey, grab a cup of coffee and have yourself a donut or two. Thanks for stopping in and wonderful complement, I truly appreciate hearing those, since I'm sort of a nit-pick when I redo something, I don't want to make something that's "restored", but made to function and still be in the original aged condition...if you know what I mean. There's a difference if something is still in mint condition after so many decades and something that someone has attempted to make it appear to be so.

      Good Day Alan2310, Thank you very much for looking in and showing the support. Deeply appreciated !!

      What a fabulous watch and story. You've done an amazing job!
    24. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      Good Day Vintagefran, Thank you very much for the wonderful complement, it's very appreciated and wish you a great day ahead :-)
    25. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      Thanks Mickey, it turned out pretty good, IMO. and all said and done I have less than 200 bucks tied up in it...might seem high to a view looking in, but we know the average price on these are several times higher than that for a working model.
    26. antiquerose antiquerose, 6 years ago
      Thumbs UP for the restoration !! Good WORK!!
