Picked up this little beauty today at the local NAWCC chapter meeting. Complete and in great shape considering it was printed in 1948. #watchmaking #saunier #nawcc #horology

This week our instructor let us loose on the ETA 7751 #watchmakingschool #moonphase #chronograph #horology

Just look at the beautiful finishes on this amazing antique pocket watch retailed by Shreve, Crump, and Lowe. The dial side bears a #tiffanyandco makers mark. Anyone have thoughts on the actual manufacturer?

Can anyone identify this little beauty? It bears the Geneva seal on the 3/4 plate and under the balance, but no other hallmarks. #vintagewatch #genevaseal #watchmaking #uhrmacher
