Hi All, I am starting the feb contest. In order to add a little carnival attitude, I am giving the winner "Choice"! I really liked Richard's lottery, it seemed to have the right amount of numbers for the amount of members..so Richard graciously said I could use it if I liked. I have chosen these from my personal collection (they are all personal..I don't sell watches yet...) I thought Id go back to the 70s,
Here they are, a 1973 Automatic with a nice blue dial and Roman numerals, and a 1977 Marlin with a black dial and cushion case. Both have been running well as I have had them out for testing for the last few weeks. The auto could use a new crystal, I don't have one the right size and it does have some what look like stress marks, the Marlin needs nothing. Both keep fairly good time (within a minute or so a day of each other) Closest without going over gets their choice!
Eleven (11), since I will be 53 on Feb. 11. February is "Jack History Month!" I share that day with such notables as Thomas Edison, Burt Reynolds, and Leslie Neilson. Combine them together and you have me! On the more controversial side you can add Sarah Palin and Sheryl Crow. BTW and FWIW I will be 53. I was born at the start of a three-day snowfall, and I look out my window it's starting to look like 1958 all over again!
