    I confess that I bought this watch with every intention of quickly flipping it. The problem is that I put it on while listing items on eBay; cleaning a few watch cases; taking photographs .... And, despite what seems to be a ridiculously small size, this is an incredibly comfortable and easily read watch. No wonder people claim it helped win the second world war.

    For those not instantly familiar, this is a Waltham A-11 circa 1940-1949 in a Keystone case. All original, right down to the canvas strap.

    Resurrected from my stash of scrap watches/donors/future projects. This one caught my eye. Found with a gawdawful green strap on it, and now having been the beneficiary of a thorough service, it is something a bit different. Close to 50 years old, and represents a typical styling trend for that time. This one has a 21-jewel ETA automatic wind movement, dial is private label for the Canadian Birks Jewellers. Bracelet temporary until I find a suitable leather strap for it. Just what I needed! Yet another watch!
