    $5 vintage JLC in thrift store

    Hope springs eternal. I just found a 1960's SS slimline in a Goodwill: manual, quadrant dial, fair case, clean crystal, missing stem and crown. It's off for an estimate on parts replacement and overhaul. Fingers (and all other appendages) crossed for a few weeks.

    Now there's some Luck! I work in a thrift shop/ antiques mall, but the best deal I've gotten so far is an accutron (working) for $15.
