    Watches to Fix

    I've bought quite a few vintage watches that were purchased in lots and so I've ended up with quite a few that require service of some sort or another. I'm already keeping a watchmaker fairly busy so I thought some of the great guys on here would enjoy having some of them and maybe could get them running themselves.

    Hopefully, there is no prohibition against giving away watches on WUS and if not, I would like to offer a small lot each day from now until Thanksgiving Day. I'm open to suggestions on how to give everyone that is interested a shot and if no one is interested I will just donate them to Goodwill. Today the first person to PM me with their address gets this lot. Will ship to any address and not just the US.

    There is a Bulova Accutron that is in good shape, Zenith Cosmopolitan that runs but has no back, Sears 7 jewel, a Deluxe and a Cornavin, none are currently working but all are in decent shape cosmetically. Here are pics and I will mail tomorrow to anyone interested in fixing or getting these fixed. (or at least trying).

    EDIT: THIS LOT HAS BEEN CLAIMED AND WILL BE HEADED TO NEW ZEALAND TOMORROW. (another lot will be posted tomorrow 11/20/2015)

    The Cornavin is interesting as it's a sibling of the (in)famous "Jessica", with Poljot movement, Taiwanese dial, and Hong Kong case.

    Hmm, New Zealand. is it Trim perhaps?

    Was thinking about the Cornavin, but may already have that one as well over $1000 worth of its siblings.
    I'm a watchbreaker not a watchmaker.

    The squarer Accutron has given up its movement meantime to resurrect this nicer one that Mike sent as part of this watch giveaway..
