#1)1973 vintage Accutron. Battery change attempts have been futile. One of the 2 or 3 guys that work on these can probably get it going but I'm too cheap and lazy and I have my Spaceview to satisfy my Accutron jones. I can provide a good "experts" name to the winner. (if there is one) I bought this at an antique shop years ago and it worked well for a few years.
#2)O&W (name unknown) 40 mm. Runs and keeps great time. BUT..... crown skips and doesn't always wind. Date and time set but winding is sketchy. New crown around here would probably run 200+ so it's up for adoption. I bought this new from Westcoast Time many moons ago.
#3) Atlantic Worldtimer. Again a crown issue. Crown is very tight and tough to wind and even set time and date. Runs but not recommended to handwind until crown issue dealt with. Also purchased new,by moi. probably 12-15 years ago.
#4)Timex Intelligent Quartz. More intelligent than me anyways. I could never set it right even with instructions. (that I no longer have)
#5)Seiko Kinetic. About 40 mm. Bough new some years ago and worn a lot so it has some "character" Should fit a 7 1/4 inch wrist. All it really needs is about a thousand million shakes to get fully charged.
#6)Daniel Mink Diver. Around 42mm. From when it was a real company run by the elder Minks before their son sullied their good name. Runs and sets fine. BUT....the dial/movement needs to be re-seated. (something like that) When the crown is pulled out to set the time the dial shifts in the case.
Any questions pleas feel free to PM. Good chances for tinkerers or if you have more reasonably priced watch guys near you.
