I've not shown anything new here for some time, so today I present:
New to my growing collection, some high quality American pieces, in average condition mostly, but worth a look :)
An Elgin Father Time grade, a victim of Polish 'watchmaking tradition', with damaged balance, likely non original hairspring, filed dowen pallet cap jewel setting and bent down balance bridge. Despite the damage works (and looks) pretty good... RR case, with a crack in the caseback...
A Hamilton 950 - converted in the factory from stem to lever set. Badly damaged movement has non original hairspring and pallet fork and no longer keeps 'RR (or even close to RR) time'. Some rust in the movement as well. Outside - good as new, somehow...
Next, a high grade dustproof Keystone Watch Co with the 'notorious' fading dial made of some kind of plastic. Personalized dial, recased...
And beautiful, lace doily Elgin grade 155 HC watches, from 1st and 2nd runs of the grade.
The 1st run piece, with replacement hands and recased, but in adorable condition:
And the 2nd run piece, with non original windnig gear (I had it replaced with a well polished original by now), in origial GF case
And last but not least, as they say, 16s Veritas grade Elgin (this one I might have already shown here, I'm not sure..):
