Old pocket watch that was owned by my dad's uncle. He died in 1929 and left each of his sisters 1000 in insurance that he had through the Rail Road. As you could imagine, One thousand dollars was quite a windfall in 1929 and they each used it to buy land, and build a home. Almost 90 years later the watch is running and the land is still in the family.


Interesting fact, they were all staunch Primitive Baptists, and there was some talk at the time of not taking the insurance money, as it went against their beliefs. A compromise was made by reasoning that he couldn't refuse the insurance, and the sisters never paid for it. Different times.

Yes, sir...that’s some classic railroad grade metal right there...with some great family provenance to boot.

Just a suggestion, sir...if you continue to run the Vanguard 1908, I would recommend a full service by a respected watchmaker [unless it’s been serviced recently] since the lubrication dries up after time...about 5 years. If you intend to let the Vanguard 1908 sit idle and not run it...a service is not necessary. I would estimate that a full service for the 1908 would run anywhere from $250 to $400...the winding indicator [up/down indicator] is a factory complication that will make a full service more in-depth and therefore somewhat more expensive.

My Vanguard 1908 says “hello”...I’m wearing it at the public library today...

Drinking Mexican Coke in a glass bottle with my pinky up fancy style. Culture is restored. Don't have to DOR now! :D View attachment 20613
Pictures like that get photoshopped into pictures that get people like me fired...

This is me showing restraint and not adding to the fine library of phallic artwork...

Just know that it would’ve been glorious...

Speedy Tuesday!

At Hooters!

LATE ENTRY: I’m having a bad hair day [again], therefore, I cropped my bad hair out of the pic...mission accomplished.
