    You're telling me. I think I'll go into the scrap business and call it horological rescue, just to ease my conscience.

    I think this ad is from the same company that owns watchco and the vintage shop in Little Collins St.

    Cheers

    They're spoiled for choice too, every family has pocket watches in it passed down as heirlooms, they're usually well looked after and moisture free, and they've never been worn to death. Yet they still pay nothing
