Waltham M.59

New postby Marty101 » Sun May 28, 2017 7:12 pm

Friends I have been working on a Waltham model 59 for over a year now...and finally getting somewhere. In fact,she's almost done...except for one thing. I have found the regulator arm is replaced and I need a new one. Are any other models candidates for a switch? I have to ask,I have to hope....because getting a junker M.59 can take another year easy...and that's if I'm lucky. :(

Sorry to bust your bubble Marty - Model 59 material is unique to itself.

Neil,I appreciate you popping it-thank you.

But would you mind taking a look at this one for me? I have never seen a model 59 AT&Co. and I'm not sure...doesn't that cock looked switched?
-Sorry,I can't get a pic for some reason! Maybe some new tech ebay has-? - anyway,here's the Ebay Item #172707778983.

Marty -

My apologies but I took a long break from GH - I did see that movt and it was all good. Sorry not to tell you to go for it! AT and Co grade 59's are quite scarce.

I went for it big time but so did a couple other men-she went way over anything within reason...I bid over $400 and lost.
