Great watches there....I love the Racecar on the caseback......and it doesnt suprise me that Oris used their movements....see....Oris I think was a bit of a Movement slut. ETA's, A Shilds, and I think even Ronda Autos at one point were found in them.....the Star I have Has a Shild inside her.....I think now they are all in house movements in them. Great post and Cheers!!!

Granted. But then these movements weren't about "Looks". Jpeg Attachments

Sure. But maybe he's not ready to donate them as a pass-around watch. Wink

An excellent collection! Thumbs up! You have a couple that are new to me.

Anonymous User313November 29, 2011 02:49PM

I have a large bunch of them, They were given to me by my watchmaker.

BobbyMike355November 29, 2011 06:11PM

Re: Like you said, they get no respect, and in the meantime they are vanishing due to the perceived lack of value that they have. Someone has to care or else the world of Horology will become that much poorer with their absence.
