Re: Jack/IWW

there were not many guys who could provide the scope of Jack's work 15+ years ago... he's rescued plenty of classics from the scrap heap... a versatile and talented guy, who filled a growing niche! I always had excellent results and easy dealings with Jack... one of the good guys! :thumbsup: I wish ...

Raided the safe box on Monday to pick a few pieces that needed some wrist motion. It's been awhile since I last wore some of these.

Re: Can I pull this off?

that's a nice example!

I got into this crazy hobby buying 50's/60's vintage Connies and Seamasters (only a couple $100 at the time) but soon tired of the smaller size, plus I really had no need for 'dress' watches... but if you're in a suit & tie alot, these do rock :thumbsup:
