    More local bootsale finds

    Not had a lot of late .. stinking weather up north but here are a few

    A pulsar with two languages for the days of the week English and German i think .. never had one which did this before



    the second is a solid silver Waltham pocket watch which is working great for a change but will need a new face .. are there any tricks to picking the right one I think it dates from 1905



    And the 3rd one well this has got me going mad when i seen it i almost put it down as there was only one hand and i could not get the back off but the clasp on the ring had me intrigued .. finaly got the back off and found a ?? strange movement well if it is a movement as there seems to be no way of winding it up .. and i am now thinking it is some form of a stop watch HELP !! what is it and how do you make it work ?

    The last piece looks to me like a pedometer? That would explain the one hand, lack of balance wheel and lack of crown.

    Third one is a pedometer
    Attach it to to your belt - walk and graduations (I guess) are miles

    I have two or three

    I also have a pedometer but it is a New Haven and the movement is a bit more... well crude.
