What a belting find!

Recommended Posts

Trip to the charity shops today, looking in the cabinet of one shop spy an old vintage watch. How much asks I, £20 says the woman! It’s only a Jäger lecouture isn’t it 😮

then in another shop a beautiful accurist circa 1950 fully working for £4.99

That JLC is very nice. Looks like the 1950&60' omegas of the time.

You made me look, very nice indeed.

Yes the crystal is a smoked acrylic which really needs either the scratches polished out, or replaced! And the watch back could do with some scratches polished out too where some nugget has used the wrong tooling 😞 but the watch runs beautifully and is well worth saving.

Yeah £20👍

Nice gesture, not everybody would.

 I had a mate who found a high quality cartridge bag in the ladies handbag section of a charity shop.

 They didn't realise what it was and he got it for next to nothing.

His wife shamed him in to a donation.

So now fitted the Accurist with a new (vintage) strap and am quite happy with the look. The strap needed some light reshaping to ease it into the watch shoulders. But it fits perfect now! Just a light scratch on the crystal to polish out now and it’s done!!

I keep all my watches. I will never make any money :lol: 

I have a drawer full of about 40 wrist watches! Around 25 pocket watches and 14 clocks too :oops: 

The current clock I am working on! It needs a new dual cylinder pendulum.
