The permanent wristwatch display moves closer to being completed.
This week we completed the drafts of Chapter 1 (1900 to 1915) and Chapter 2 (1914 to 1919)
Chapter 1 is titled "Ladies First" and Chapter 2 is "WWI" - I am most pleased with these graphics, I have bought and used some outstanding American WWI "Dougboy" or also affectionately referred to as "Sammies"
I will post pictures of these.
Then I installed three donations:
First a GLYCINE movement donated by Emre, its a super piece that bridges a technical gap between John Harwood "bumper" and allowing that style of automatic to be easily serviced or repaired.
Here is a picture of that piece on display.
Next was a donation by Eeeb, one of the first quartz timepieces incorporating a stepper motor, launched by Girard Perregaux in 1971, it used all american electronics, but mechanical parts from Jaeger Le-Coultre
Again some pictures:
Finally a third donation from a NAWCC member who has an outstanding collection of Character and Novelty pcs. This is a rarer 17J version of the J Ward character "Dudley Do-Right, a dim witted but conscientious Canadian Mountie. Here you go:
all good stuff. to-day the lights were also installed.
I am just now waiting for a few outstanding pieces from Gallet, and the display is complete.
122 Pcs with 76 new or never displayed before.
