Handmade period style Kitchener leather strap band, Entirely handmade with hand rubbed edges. Rare historic military watch in very good condition. Rare watch in tremendous condition! The supply of early watches is going to dry up folks!My thanks to you all! Please check back, as in the coming weeks I will be listing handmade Kitchener bands, IWC trench watches, a Waltham Shrapnel guard piece, Demi Hunters, Longine Borgels, a cool Waltham Depollier, and a handful of nice affordable, in short, : some of the best Trench watches ever made!

Dedicated to getting it right. Right Price: the offered price is my price, no BS.
(I do discount to disabled Veterans) The offered price is what I need to get for the watch, based on the marketplace, costs, reasonable labor rates. While I see many sellers priced at 2-3 times the market, I dont go there.
Right Restorations: sadly far too many vintage and antique watches are restored and overhauled by hobbyist level, self taught amateurs. I receive repair work on a daily basis, and spend most of my time correcting poorly executed work. It takes about 10 years of full time work to become a good watchmaker, and a lifetime to become a great one.My restorations are comprehensive, paying attention to every aspect and component of the watch and I draw on 30+ years of experience. Its much more than the just getting the watch running! I invite you take advantage of my 30 plus years of experience in the vintage/antique watch business. I specialize in early wristwatches, mostly from the WW1 -WW2 era, enabling me to do the very best restoration work. I have or have been a member of the AWI, NAWCC, BHI etc. But nowadays mostly do business via the national and international mails. Introducing "Mickey", a 9 year old. We are very fond of him, being very handsome hes a hit with the ladies. MY SINCERE THANKS AND GRATITUDE TO ALL MY CUSTOMERS.
