    This question arose in my mind after seeing old pocket watch movements converted into wrist watches, still without shock protection. From my limited understanding of the durability of balance staffs, it seems like that may be a bad idea without adding a shock protection system if they are...

    Let's face it, GP just doesn't get the same amount of love as those "other" brands. Certainly not for a lack of quality, innovation and beautiful design, and being a bit more scarce in the marketplace than the big boys just adds to the thrill of the hunt. I've had the pleasure of owning...

    I recently purchased this Universal. It is functioning quite well for what I suspect to be a 60 some year old watch.
