    Can you refresh my memory on exactly which thread you're referring to?

    I just went through 14 pages of threads under that description and can't seem to locate the one you're referring to.

    Re: A fascinating early wristwatch

    So just out of interest, has anybody here ever seen such a hulking great tonneau case for pocket-watch movement, pre Russian Revolution?

    No, can't say that I have. If it was made by IWC, I'd call it a "Große Fliegeruhr".....!
