    I like it.
    I need to start hitting the road and finding some of these incredible old watches people are finding at garage sales and such

    Curious as to what the connection is with Damas.
    Does anyone know?
    I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

    Damas was a long-established Swiss watch company. I found this about Damas a while back:

    "Beguelin, Ch. Ed. & J of Tramelan, Switzerland. Beguelin started his company in 1903..... They have gone through numerous names, all variants of the name and place of the factory. i.e. 1920 Beguelin & Cie. Tramelan was listed as a separate company. 1923 Beguelin-Tramelan. 1924 Tramelan Watch Co. SA. successors to Beguelin & Cie. 1925 Beguelin and Tramelan were both listed separately. 1949 Beguelin & Cie. Des Montres Damas et Tramelan Watch Co. 1951 Beguelin & Cie SA. Damas. 1966 Damas, Beguelin & Co. SA. 1974 Beguelin."
