    Couple of new fixers

    Picked these 2 up recently to be added to the list of fixers, really must stop buying these.

    First up a Scully Special decent case and dial obvious damage and it doesn't tick, seems to wind ok and the balance is good so a problem in the train somewhere. All will be revealed when I rip it apart.


    Second Galaxie by Elgin very obvious damage case is good dial a little spotty, this does work but the keyless works are pretty stiff maybe a service and clean up new glass and who knows.


    The Scully came with a couple of Timex one in the spares bin, but the other is up and running well after a little tinkering.
    A

    All in less than £10 seems reasonable for hours of fun/frustration.

    Thanks got them all off the bay. The Scully and 2 Timex were 4.56 inc post and the Elgin 4.99 inc post, there are still bargains out there. I'll post some pics of the movements and finished watches when I get time to look at them.
