    Hello Everyone...

    Tomorrow I am bumping the time to 4 pm EDT.

    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....

    Remember the CH room is only as good as the collectors that join in.... please post a watch you want to chat about.

    Be Safe

    Good Hunting

    Was quite surprised at the interest in Vulcain Crickets, so I may follow up next week in showing more.


    To highlight the contrast in the sector dials, here are a few of the same models, but that have aged differently.
