    early 20s Illinois...
    P1000449.JPG P1000485.JPG

    BUT.... I was outdone at work today!

    one of the guys at work, knowing my addiction to watches says " here, I brought in my grandad's watch for you to look at"

    I expected one of the usual: a 1920s 12 size American pocket watch in poor condition but NO!

    We got this! An Irish made (Dublin) silver pair cased verge with a fusee from the mid 1770s.... and the friggin thing is running!

    WOW!!!

    and all that scroll work... the pretty piecing of the balance cock... all hand done!

    The non-quickset date on the 1675 is as much of a pain as everyone says it is

    Late in the day post but I love this little guy. The band is the most comfortable I own. Even better than my beads of rice.

    True, but that would probably come with a divorce instead of a hang tag....

    Yes, it is. It has the Cricket alarm movement inside, which IMO is the best.

    bright-barking crickets, and only one winding crown; reverse to wind the alarm :thumbsup:
