I recently picked up this pocket watch and I must admit that it takes a special person to appreciate the, um, beauty of this piece. I am not one of those people.
The reason for this purchase was to obtain the very clean Unitas 6498 for a project.
So a couple of questions for the crowd.
Let me preface my first by saying that I have read the rules and am not really looking for a valuation of the piece, but would like to know if I am stupid for cannibalizing a perfectly good watch of such stunning caliber.
The second question is what would be the best source of a dirt cheap chinese clone to replace into the piece so that I can still wear it out to fancy dinners or possible the county fair.
I welcome all comments and criticisms.
