David:

I found an old book (available free in PDF) printed in the late 1800’s on the topic of lubrication. One of the lubricants discussed was paraffin based. I wonder if what I am seeing in these old single plate pocket watches is what’s left from that stuff. They show pictures of small whales and porpoises where they open up their heads and drain off the oil. They also have pictures of the processing plants.

Strange…

Later,
Tom
