And for every good story

There maybe one of rescue!  I rescued this guys grandfathers watch when he so empathetically sold it off on ebay... hey... what a great kid.  Got this rare Physician for a silly price... like I stole it out of his grandpas sockdrawer... (yes, he seriously said after his grandpa died he found this watch in his sock drawer and now its on ebay)

Saw that Jerin but I didn't bid because of the 13AL movement. Parts are equally scarce. If were running I doubt you would have it now.

Nice grab Dude, who knows, a good clean and lube may be all it needs.

That's awesome, I think you'll make out like a bandit. I have a 13AL with a broken staff so if you need anything off it, let me know. I may even have some staffs but I'd have to hunt them down.

Some people just don't appreciate history.

Nice rescue Jerin!

I really like the band.  I've got a similar band on a c1930 President (if I remember correctly).
