Is this a Penfield?

grumpyguy: I noticed your beautiful Penfield on the What Are You Wearing Today thread. Is this a Penfield? I need to get it repaired. I think it needs a new mainspring. I used to wear it until that happened.

Re: WRUW 9/2 through 9/8/2018?

Magpie, beautiful Gruen. Also, beautiful matching Bulova Rite Angle watches that you and mrtoad wore. I meant to post my Bulova Rite Angle black dial right under it, then I was running late, so I didn't. Then the whole week seemed to be me running from place to place. Maybe, I'll have a chance to po...

Re: WRUW 7/22 through 7/28/2018?

Yup, 1951, so no name. Doesn't appear in the 54 catalogue. But, by golly, it has the original bracelet. Tuesday's watch is an Elgin 6720: http://mrtoad.net/Media/201807WRUW/Elgin_6720.jpg Not bad for a $15 watch, running well and complete with bracelet! (Does anyone know whether this model has a na...
