Antiques Store Find

Post by AJC on 2013-03-18, 15:46

I was spending the last few days at the Delaware beaches and found this little guy for $28 at a little antiques store while my girlfriend was looking for an old box to restore to keep my watch tools in.



It's ticking strong and keeping time, but I'm going to polish the acrylic crystal and replace the old twist-o-flex with a matte, no-stitch, dark brown leather strap.

I also saw an ubercool Wakman braille watch but $200 was a little crazy.

Fitting that I bought this watch at the Delaware beaches and the bridge looks like Delaware.
