    Letís see those Masonic watches?

    Anybody have any Masonic watches they would like to share. eBay is full of crappy ones. Iím trying to get an idea of who manufactured them to zero in on my search.

    Just saw your post. I canít post photos right now but Iíve got a couple, nothing super high quality. Iíve got a Bulova quartz with the square and compass on the dial that was offered in a Texas Masonic magazine probably around 2008ish. Iíve also got a Barclay Watch Co. automatic (ďThe MasonicĒ) that was designed by a watch enthusiast Brother in Pennsylvania (who sadly passed away a few years ago). He designed a few different models that can still be found on eBay I think. They were not extremely high quality, made in China with Chinese automatic movements, but at least they were designed with pride by a brother and were limited and numbered. He also did a pocket watch (ďThe FreemasonĒ), which was an homage to the rare and expensive Dudley, which I own as well (the Barclay homage, not the Dudley).

    Unfortunately I think if someone would want a really high end Masonic piece today, youíd probably have to commission a one of a kind piece from a watchmaker. Or get lucky and find something really vintage.

    Owned a Bueche-Girod in the 80s with a 17 jewels handwound movement. A remake of the late 70s.

    Apparently it is a Chinese automatic G3201Z. Supposedly itís based on a Seiko design.
