    Perhaps these Weems are getting their long overdue recognition. Now all we need is for Hodinkee to do a little write-up and they'll be trading about 10k.

    Wow. Nutty people with money to burn or shill bids and watches will show up again.

    Had about a half dozen of the Longines small and a few medium (33 mm) and most I sold for was $400 for the med. model.

    Even had a movement for a center dial med. model. Can't recall what I did with it.

    Movado I assume is military by the solid lugs, but case is not signed that I could see anywhere

    I want to go back in time and hang on to everything I bought and buy even more.

    DON

    Why I am glad I was not a flipper nut case only sold stuff I did not like and that was not many. The stuff I kept because I liked it to much to sell I would not pay the price that stuff is selling for today.

    Also that movado movement was incorrect, should of been a 4 adj movement.

    Furthermore, I had inquired with the seller regarding the bezel locking crown tube: it has been cut flush with the case. Henceforth it will need to have a replacement tube soldered in place. Makes for a very expensive case and project (and wrong movement as you pointed out Paul).
