    Two Ten Dollar Watches

    I love bargins and thought I would show off what I consider two of my better bargins. One of the most important components in collecting affordable watches is fnding someone to service them at a reasonable price. I have found a local shop that sevices most manuals for $48 (previously $40) and most automatics at $65. The two watches were taken out of the $10 pile at a local watch show I've shown both previously. The first is a Phenix and the other a small Junghans pocketwatch. The Phenix required a crown and crystal the Junghans a mainspring and bow. Serviced and repaired total cost of each was under $75.

    Very nice! I think you should put a black leather strap on the Phenix!

    Two excellent buys. The dials on both are in super condition.
