    so you're not bitter at all then...

    I'll post a nice Hamilton made pocket watch then.... more stinky poo.

    just to be mean.

    you'll recognize the movement as a 992B with a bit of tuning/marketing added...

    It's a much better picture for sure, without the flash, but it looked pretty bad before, that crap on the bezel isn't out of focus [emoji23][emoji23]

    Gallet Trench circa 1916..... Sterling silver case with .935 and standing bear hallmark.

    Uncommon damasceening on a uncommon 17j 4 adj movement.

    Love the screwed down chatons, whose genesis stem from pocket watch movements.

    I think Dan Henry nailed it on design and size on these model 1939 and 1947's. Neither too busy nor big.
