Roy,

Yes, I did the skeletonizing/customizing myself just for fun a couple years ago. Just trying to see what weird design I could come up with.

Roy,

Thank you. I found the watch in Ohio. I collect unusual watches and this one sure stands out in group Smile

I have this high-grade American-made vintage model laid out for tomorrow. I bought it new back in the late 1960's or early 1970's,

Jeremy, I love the watch with your daughter on it. Great idea! did you install the dial or is there an outfit that is doing that?

Here is what I wore today.
A Hampden lever set with the Diadem movement.

Thanks Tom. I took a picture of my daughter, trimmed it to fit in the case and removed the origional dial. Then I used a punch for the cannon pinion opening. Dial dots helped me secure the picture onto the movement support. It was fun and rewarding. I have made several others for my mom and dad. I just love your Hampden watch. Maybe someday I'll be able to afford something nice too.

Today my "Oris"

I called the timepiece a "Wind Indicator".

Oris have kindly replied to my e-mail requesting History information etc.

"Dear Roy

According to our watchmaker this is as you already now a Movement 605 Kif
Automatic with power reserve.

It was produced from 1950 to 1960.
The movement is said to be as complicated due to its power reserve.

The price then was about CHF 200.- approximately £ 95.-.

This is all information I could get.

Thank you for your understanding!


Kind regards,
Fabienne Muster
