Rockford Pocket-Size Advertising Pamphlet (Ca. 1900?) "Click" to Login or Register

Well, I just came across another one of these neat pocket-size pocket watch wholesale advertising pamphlets. This one is a Rockford from around the turn of the century it would appear. Thought someone might enjoy it or find it useful, so I'm posting it below. Among other ways that this thing is cool, it shows the number of adjustments (positions, temp, and isochronism) for each movement that is marked as "Adjusted".

I'm not from down under, Eugene, but I spent two of the best weeks of my life in Perth and Fremantle while serving in the Navy in the mid 80s.

What prompts you to ask? Smile

Very odd. Looking at the pics on the desktop and laptop they are all right side up. But on my iPhone and iPad they're all upside down. Go figure,

Eugene, I'd be happy to email you the individual pics if you'd like, so you could rotate them to the right aspect.

Nice for anyone interested in the Rockford watch and the grades.
Will see about getting it linked to our "Technical Library" forum.

regards,
