    My new old art deco period Jaeger!

    Well.. it's not exactly a watch..
    Sort of..

    I guess this came out of a 1920's-30 Buick.

    Will be restoring this to its original glory soon. It will make an awesome desk clock :)

    Nice curiosity! The Buick logo used on the dial started in 1913 and was phasing out in 1927, from what I can tell.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I'm sure that there's someone out there, maybe the Ukraine, that could solder some lugs on it and turn it into a wristwatch for you.

    Anyway, be sure to let us see the finished project.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    I know large watches are in fashion right now, but 80mm+ would be a tad over the top ;)

    Interesting that Buick chose to obscure the Jaeger dial signature....
