Holy crap! Well done. That is a whole lot of hunting.
Was that wrong? Should I not have done that?

There use to be a old watch shop I use to go to in Nile's Calif. called the store it were I got the bug for vintage watches a cool little town for antique shops. Well use to pick up watches there it's out of business now. Then antique fairs a good one is alameda point at the old NAS Alameda base it's on the tarmac four hours to walk through it talked to my sister the other day she said the last time she went a lot of watch sellers. Then NAWCC marts and regionals the SF chapter at the San Leandro boys club has the best marts for cool vintage wristwatches miss that mart every other month tell you I never knew why the DWC bay area crew never checked it out and then the NAWCC regionals were there are rows of table with watches for sale and then old reliable fleabay but the deals are drying up and Forum sales section were deals can still be had some times all most forgot found a few things at military shows the ones you can still find civil war through the present stuff they had two a year in the bay area I would find issued watches and aircraft clocks at those 15-18 years of hunting and I sold some also a few I miss.
