Something interesting to see.
the little popping and banging noises are the lens cap against the camera, and then my kids in their beds NOT GOING TO SLEEP!!! sigh. they're asleep now thankfully.
anyway, here are a few shots of my friend's watch. he's gonna try to sell it later, but i just wanted to share this with you all.
as far as i can tell (not from the book that comes with it though) this was made in the 1980s, but in the book is written the year 1978. i dunno....
how many of these have any of you come across? i found a couple sights selling them in the $4-6000 range. wow. but the last two ebay listings i found were under $1500. big difference. wonder why. hmm.
here are the links i found that i found...
so here is this thing in all it's shiny musical glory.
standing up like an alarm clock.
hunter style case with key ready to wind music box part. it's separate from the watch movement.
the backside. at first i thought it looked like some grotesque heart, but i think it's supposed to be a bagpipe. and then of course some other instruments along with it.
and i hadn't seen any shots of the movements... this doesn't really help. not much to look at and i'm not about to start tearing into it just to share a photo with everybody.
