Hi Everyone! I struck “pay dirt” ❗ ❗
All sorts of clock movements to purchase! Nothing over $70 and most are around $39! Go get some but leave a few for me! 😆 All you have to do to purchase is email them with the product number and they’ll get you set up to purchase!
OH BUMMER! I try to click to email them, and it says not email option not available!!!!! UH OH!!!!March 19, 2014 at 2:32 pm #56527chris mabbottParticipant
Great site Peggy, but what about us Pocket Watch guys, nobody loves usMarch 19, 2014 at 2:49 pm #56528
I wonder what these guys are doing with the clock cases?March 19, 2014 at 2:50 pm #56529
They have pocket watches… but I’ve found out that to click the ’email us’ links, they don’t work! What a bummer!
Here’s the pocket watch and watch page. It’s under watch restoration from their home page.

Peggy, you da gal 😆 thanks for all the links, that will keep me busy for a spell..
Paul, I thought the same thing, where are those cases?? I have the same feeling when I see movements on eBay, I’m sure the silver/gold cases have hit the smelter so it puts me off buying just a movement, even though I might need it, robbing Peter….
That and those bloody steampunk artists 👿 Honey, where’s my shotgunMarch 19, 2014 at 4:38 pm #56536
Arutha, maybe you can email that clocksmith guy “Jeff Smith” and ask him where you can get some empty clock cases.March 20, 2014 at 3:16 pm #56537
some of these watch movements you see would have had gold cases, all that craftsmanship gone to be melted down to make naff rings or chains
I was reading an article about this guy who was working in Clerkenwell just after the war. Customers were bringing in old verge pocket watches which the jeweler was buying for the gold. As soon as the customer left the movement was removed and the enameling smashed off of the case so the gold could be re-used. The guy writing the article said he lost count of how many watches ended up like this as at the time there was quite a gold shortage. When he thinks back now to that time it makes him feel sick. I had a similar feeling while reading the article
Peggy, I dont need any cases, I just wonder were all those movements came from, they were in cases once. I just hope this guy isn’t throwing out the cases just to sell the movements although in this day and age a complete clock is worth more than just the movement.

Worth some thought, for sure! 🙄
