    Hello Wingman,Bob & All, I to have childhood memories about my interest in watches and clocks. every Tuesday I would go with my Mother by train to visit my Grandparents. On our return we would walk up a hill to the Bus Station, Which took us past a watchmakers called Charles Groves. I would look at a pocket watch which was made by the Smiths Company.After much debate my father said if I could save half he would give me the rest for my eighth birthday. ( This was 1955) Many years later I bought my Wife her Wedding ring at the same shop. Sadely the shop is no longer there.But Im happy to say The Wife is. Clive in cornwall U.K.
