    Thanksgiving Watch Giveaway Day 5

    Okay, same rules as before. The third person to send me a private message "I'll take em" after 8:00pm Eastern Time 11/23/2015 wins this lot.

    The first watch is a 25x28mm Omega that runs well and that someone certainly got their money's worth out of. The case is pretty worn but it does keep good time. I can't find a movement number anywhere and this thing has been serviced a dozen times so someone really loved this watch long time.

    The next watch is a 32mm aluminum Webster that is wound tight. Aluminum was quite expensive long ago and was considered the metal of kings and queens until there was an inexpensive process created to manufacture it. Actually was more valuable than gold at one point. The movement is a one jewel movement and the case and dial are in great shape and it's obviously very light.

    The third watch is an Elgin calendar 35mm with a cool 70's dial and orange second hand. The watch runs well and the only issue is, you have to keep the crown pulled out to set the time. It has an AS 1916 movement.

    Good luck all!

    And a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend also from me (even though we don't celebrate this in Germany). I got my own Thanksgiving present today when I got a parcel from mmarc77: a Zenith "Tank" watch with form calibre 8 3/4 F from 1941 in excellent condition. I will post some pictures in the near future when the lighting is better (I leave early and come home late). A huge "Thank you!" to mmarc77 for making my day.

    Thanks to mmarc77 for my Thanksgiving giveaway. Was able to change crystal using a new modified Hamilton crystal I happened to have. Haven't serviced it yet but it is running quite accurately i.e. within 20 sec per day. Looks great. Thanks!

    And I finally got round to taking some piccies of the aforementioned watch - before it went off for a service. I posted in the Zenith forum:

    A pre-Christmas pressie - finally some pictures!

    Once again: thanks, Marc - it made my month!
