    New addition

    Just got this in the mail yesterday:









    The serial number on the movement is 19808876. I bought it off of ebay... heres the link:

    I'm going to give it to my grandfather (from all his grandkids) on his birthday this month... he'll be 89. Was looking for on that was made on his birth year, but did not see any that I liked or that were reasonably priced.

    I like it, seems to be in great shape. I'll have to look for another one for myself. :D

    Looks to be in pretty nice shape. It's probably worth a service and cleaning if you are going to give it as a gift. That way it'll run well for many years.

    It looks like an exceptional watch. I'm sure grandfather would love it.

    What's that engraved on the back?

    That movement has seen nothing but good care... nice catch!
    "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!
