Job lot story, part 2…
Also in the lot are two watches with engraving, variously TW, but one a Lusina is further engraved from 'Lord and Lady Knollys, Bermuda, 1941-1943.' Knollys was the governor of Bermuda at the time. Yet again, one gets caught up in the should I, shouldn't I conundrum. The movement on this Lusina is shown here (I haven't taken the time to track it down yet), but the main case is corroded (back is SS and perfect)... should I, shouldn't I send this off?
And this Felca was in there, too. I love the dial and I'm certain that it would clean up nicely. The ETA 1093 ticks and so probably just needs a minor service. But mein Gott im Himmel just look at those lugs!!! A salutary tale, here. Anyone reading this that likes expanding bracelets, feast your eyes on this mess. Uggh. This is what happens to lugs with those blinking things. But…should I, shouldn't I send this off for repair?
