Not exactly new to the watch game my father reapirs antique watches and clocks as a hobby and does some work on the side for other collectors so I have been around them all my life but I came into some extra cash through a lucky auction purchase and sale so I thought I would start my own collection.

Got real lucky at an estate auction great prices if i had brought more cash my collection would be much larger. My father got a few great time pieces too. There are three more i need to add to this list once i find some more info on them.
