Re: Ritz

I know a collector in Texas that told me years ago he has a solid gold one. Never saw it, and have no doubt not to believe him, he also has two platinum Hamilton Ovals. Tease! WOW would THAT be something to behold... I guess there are some closet collectors that just hang on to the good stuff and n...

Re: FRED'S NEW BOOK IS HERE!!! NEW UPDATE

I am so glad you offered them here for the Forum to have first shot.
Glad the limited edition set was such a huge sellout and hope the few
remaining sets get to Forum members before they are all gone at that
crazy low price.

This watch is very cool! I love seeing what everyone wears. Do you have to have someone pop your neck back into place after wearing it?
I call it my chiropractor watch, because I need an adjustment after a day on the wrist! :lol:

Re: Illinois Square Cut Corner

Thanks Fred. Happy with your comment. Thanks owch. I bought the watch without crystal. It's new. Polish a crystal is complicated. You need cerium oxide. Thanks Andy. Effectively with new hands and crown the watch is more nice. Thanks GJH. I have made the restoration. Best regards. You did fine work!

Re: ITS BACK.

Anytime Pedro. This is what we are here for. EVERY one of us was a new collector and we have ALL made mistakes along the way. No one likes to see anyone get burned. I made it a promise to the forum that every time I saw someone blatantly not telling something important about a watch, I would call th...
