    Little Tiny Omega Pocket Watch

    Got this little pocket watch at a yard sale for $1. It's cute, but the mainspring is toast. Serial no. dates to 1899 or 1900?

    Measures a little over 35mm in diameter, I was thinking it might be a good one to send off to the Ukraine, and have

    a pilot's watch made, or maybe to Mumbai, and have the dial re-done in green.

    What do you think?

    People try to find watches that have not been butchered by some Ukrainian Dr. Frankenstein, and not repainted in Bombay, and while having a complete watch you want to destroy it... No, sorry, but that's vandalism.
    You can also get a wristlet made for it.

    I found that Testers paint works wonders on dials, cases, hands, heck, it's the duct tape of paints

    Why would you do that to a pw? I'd have it cleaned up but not altered from its original unless you didn't have a case for one, two if some other .... was missing so bad you just have to replace the dial and everything else. I'd hate to see what crap would be altered on this pw.

    Please don't feed the animals. I'll let you decide if I'm talking about the animals in ukrain/bombay or the animals on this forum... ;)

    I'm thinking you're right, maybe better off unprovoked. Methinks some of the original sarcasm has been lost. By the way, I just noticed the link to your
    website : very nicely done. Much to explore there, I'll be spending some time there this afternoon.

    Maybe I should break down and update it, like I've been meaning to do for .. what, a year now? Sigh. I had so much enthusiasm when I started...
