    hi everyone

    SORRY will start at 5 pm !

    Just a FYI . this is still a work in progress..... The Things With Springs Clubhouse room is meant for a Live watch forum experience with a small GTG. We are striving for a collector to collector conversations.. having collectors either email me photo of there watch ( or they can join the forum and reply to this thread ) so we can " chat" about in real time... Just to be clear we dont have to talk about a posted watch ... this is a free flowing room on topics on vintage watches and things around watch collecting ... And at the end of the GTG when everyone leaves the CH room... and the room no longer exist ... This thread will remain as a quasi record of the event and we can later go back and refer to.... Hear you at 5 pm EDT Sunday ....

    THINGS WITH SPRINGS CH CHAT 03/05/23
    Remember the Clubhouse room is only as good as the collectors that join in.... please post a watch, timepiece , clock etc you want to chat about.

    join the room

    After never having met in person, Bill and I were in the same room two days in a row this week, and Charlie has reports from both:

    I’ve been trawling eBay as usual and think I’ve spotted an Omega ‘Air Ministry’ that could be worth a punt currently at £160. It needs servicing but, I think that I could get it done by my Watchmaker friend for a good price. These are three that I spotted on eBay. Do you think they are all the same model of Watch?

    What are your thoughts about this 1935 Tropic Dial Omega. Worth a punt?

    Not at the same level as the Breitling, but an Omega I picked up about a year ago. Gold plated case, but I really like how it wears.

    Here are some other bargain basement deals that I spotted. Are any of these worth a punt?

    Some pocket watches that I was watching on eBay over the past few weeks. I nearly bought these. I really liked the J.W. Benson watch with ‘The Bank’ movement.
