    Re: Elgin - Trench Watches of the Great War - WRUW

    Well this threads gone in a completely different direction.. maybe when i get my Borgel back i'll start a "Trench Watch WRUW".

    Until then, Scott i see you collect Eberhards.. would you mind keeping an eye out for those Eberhard trench watches with the fully hermetic cases? As in the case within a case, crown and all. I want one.

    Thankyouuuuu.

    Yes 28a that's fine, but I actually don't see very many of them, but will pay more attention to their trenches! Scott

    Re: Elgin - Trench Watches of the Great War - WRUW

    Thanks mate, appreciate it! There was one on ebay a couple of weeks back but it had swivel lugs.. not a problem except one of the lugs was missing so i figured that might of been expensive to fix. And it was about $200ish more than i wanted to spend for a first watch.

    Now i'd like to find one.

    I looked much more closely to-day.
    Note all the big bidders pulled out at 500$, you were bidding against a novice.
    Adam - already asked for an immediate reversal, even pointing the seller toward this discussion, don't forget also, I'm still a 'novice' as well !! Best Scott

Thanks ! Just let me know your thoughts on why and I will tell him a renowned Horologist is questioning the watch !! Thanks ! Scott

    First, please drop the "renowned" - Thanks.
    OK
    Let me add what I think
    Dial is reworked.
    Movement and case do not match.
    Case is definitely NOT Eberhard
    I do not think crown matches case
    The bridge marked EBERHARD, may be original EBERHARD piece, but I don't think it was original to that movement - just my feeling.

    Sorry, if I had bought it, and I buy badly at times too, i would always suspect it was Franken.

    Sorry

    I am not an expert nor I am renowned.
    I am just a simple guy that has a passion for Horology.

    No more or no less.

    That's fine Adam - already heard from the seller, he's happy to cancel the transaction immediately ! 'No problems' he said ! In fact it's already reversed, hard to believe it was that straight forward, not true for most sellers -Cheers, Scott

    WE NOW RETURN YOU TO YOUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED TRENCH WATCH THREAD.....SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED....
