    Second jumbo of the day, out for dinner this evening. These are so light on the wrist I found myself checking if I dropped it. Used to a Speedy or SM300 during the week.

    The Canadian firm T Easton & Co. used the SOLAR name on their house brand watches. Hmmmm! I wonder.

    My white dial 2943 is due for a spin on my wrist soon. Good to see an even scarcer black!

    I'm actually not wearing this... too nasty. I only bought it because it was so very nasty... a Swiss attempt at a cheap watch (20 francs) it was patented in the late 1860s and had a pin escapement and no center wheel... apparently we just don't need that pesky thing, check it out... no staff in the center... WTF! You can hear it ticking all the way across the room, well... clanking actually.

    thank you Herr Rosskopf.

    Likewise with my Ingersoll Yankee! Movement made circa 1905 by the Waterbury Clock Co., for Ingersoll Bros. five and dime stores in New York. Ingersoll was the largest supplier of watches in the US, later absorbed by U S Time (Timex). Ingersoll produce almost 100 million watches. These watches were called “dollar watches” because they sold for $1.00. Back wind, back set, pin lever, the crown is a dummy. Farmers liked them because they made such a racket that the sound drowned out the sound of their Hart Parr or Rumley Oil-Pull tractors!
