    Sunday Market bargain of the week #1

    Just picked this up at my local market for $15. Wound it up, set the time and its a beauty! It needs a new strap and a general case and glass polish - but that's about it.

    Good going Tony. It really surprises me what's out there unappreciated by so many. Where do you get new crystals from?

    I'll visit my local watchmaker on the Kapiti Coast.. Blair at WoB should be able to help you out or Auckland Watch Company in HSBC Building Arcade in Queen Street. .
