Thanks for the help. I will find the Ad and submit it with the posting and try to get the 3 stars.

On another note, I have just purchased a large lot of second hands for the 7AK calibre watches and if you know of any one who needs a particular one I will be happy to oblige. I also did the same with minute and hour hands and the same offer is extended.

I am just beginning to really get immersed in this hobby and having some real fun.

I replaced the sec hand with a gilt. Now it is as it should be. I am ordering some movements for parts and will be getting the watch repaired soon.
