Hello again. Just wanted to say thanks for helpful comments in regards to my Waltham. Now on to new things her are some photos of my Fusee. I hate to say that my friend is wrong but I think he was way off the mark on the age. Ive checked the hall marks and it dates to 1877. He said he thought it had been re-cased, not too sure about that. The case # is 2123 but the movement reads #2725. Both are marked C Strickland. Love the fact that they even put the address on it 45 Park Street London on the movement. None the less, I could give a dang that its not 18th cent. Its a family heirloom that what counts to me.
I saw a post about someone traveling to France and asked for advice, thought I might try the same. I will be going to Moscow in a couple of weeks and thought I would keep an eye out.
Now I am also on the hunt for a Ball Cleavland Railroad watch.... unfortunately to replace my grandfathers that was stolen years ago. That would have been nice to have. My grandfather was one of the last steam engineers.
