    different pocket watches

    while going through my find (see previous post) I found these.

    a brail swiss pin lever, swiss lepine style digital, swiss bar style with reversed hands, New England scout pocker style, Pallweber jump hour (the 1st patented digital ). The 3rd wheel on this is weird as it has gaps in the teeth.

    Interesting pieces. They show some of the variety you can get in this 400+ year old hobby
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Someone had a good eye for interesting and unusual dials/pieces.
    Some very interesting ones in that 'pile'
