Neal welcome. Sounds like some nice examples of American pocket watches,congrats. I'm sure you'll get them running hanging here,whether you want to learn repairs or find a trustworthy man to do it.
As for the wristies they aren't my thing-but lots of other men are into them and I'm sure will comment. See you on the board,friend. :D
Keep winding things,

Hello Everyone...
My name is Mike Turner. I have been a watch collector for several years. My main collecting interest is Elgin Pocket watches.
I am really looking forward to enjoying conversations with other watch enthusiasts here on this forum.

Thanks for allowing me to join!!

Welcome Mike,

I have seen some of your posts on the NAWCC MB.

This is a smaller, more friendlier group and I look foward to your questions.

Thanks Jim..
I like friendly people!
Sometimes, I do get tired of trying to be on my P's and Q's when I post... then there is always someone who will tell you what is wrong with that old common watch (and, that it is just another old Elgin... of which there was a bazillion made) even if that is not what what you were asking... I'm sure you know.
I look forward to posting and learning here!

Mike

(P.S., I tried to learn how to work on watches over THERE..... but some high and mighty people tried to make me feel stupid. I really was but I didn't need anyone to point that out... LOL. Anyway, .....)
