    1940s Juvenia Bumper Automatic.

    Sorry for the lack of progress on my collection thread: I haven't posted it because my spreadsheet became corrupted and I'm having to start again from the beginning. Which is annoying, and, like a watch eating pixie, time consuming. So, to make up for the lack of a collection post, here are some shots of a Juvenia Automatic I recently bought:






    Still has the movement dustcap, which is nice:



    A very clean 17 jewel bumper movement, which will need to be serviced:





    And, lastly, a wrist-shot:

    I didn't realize there was such a thing!


    Nice watch JL. Don't feel the need to use a spreadsheet - I agree, they are too time consuming and frustrating.

    Okay, I'll try and find another way to list them all when I get around to doing the thread.

    Thank you. As to your not having an example, I just can't believe that. You must have one somewhere.

    Still looking for a functional bumper in my collection. I have a Zenith Cal. 133.8 to be restored (central second hand stem broken, dial is trashed - and no cash!) which would be nice to get going. Yours has an Adolf Schild Cal. AS 1250 in case you didn't know:
