The case is certainly restorable. It could use a new crystal but they all can from back then.

Here's a secret: women's watches are cheap. Particularly small women's watches. Go surf eBay for the favorite unattainable brand of your choice, hand-wound, women's watch, go from lowest price. I see nine Rolexes for under $200.

And when you're dumping estate jewelry, you take what you can get. So when that JLC goes for $7 (plus $10 shipping!) yeah you're mad but it's one thing out of a thousand you're unloading.

But yeah I'm pretty tickled.

Oh brilliant, there's so much beautiful junk. I have small wrists, I may actually be able to pull something off here. If not at least I have my next mothers day gift set. I hope she enjoys broken watches I broke even further while cracking them open.

Look for 70s vintage women's cellinis. A) they're beautiful B) they fit on men. Friend's father wore one since new; he died and she's wearing it now.

If a good deal comes around I'll probably pick one up. You're a horrible influence man... I've already spent close to $5k this year on watches, and I'm planning on picking up a Garmin fenix 5 once my pro deal comes through.

Dayum dude I've spent like $70

Granted I've spent like $15k learning how to make them...

Yeah, people like me are the reason you're taking those classes.
