The ones, I thought about your search for, were analog with Arabic numerals. I can't remember if they had minute marks though.
The gruen dive watch in the tackle box looks interesting. Any info on it? Is it one of the broken ones?

Is it one of the broken ones?Aside from needing a service(movementi s fine, but just won't stay running), crystal, and correct case-back; it is pretty neat. The bezel rotates on it as well. It is a 17J manual wind, and has one serious issue, the back isn't the correct case back. The OG screw-on back is missing and a generic case-back was pressed on. Hopefully a correct case-back can be sourced at some point.
The watch hobby has been neglected as of late, so I decided to dedicate this evening to sorting out the watch boxes and deal with watches laying all over the house. Got the watches sorted into five boxes and a tackle box for overflow. I wonder if, since TimeLord LV. 3 is five watches, if I could be Dr. Who. j/k..hahaAnyway, here are the boxes. Let me know what you think about the sorting. I did it based on how much I like the watches. Although, if they are in the main two boxes, I really like them. I don't have a focus in this hobby, so there are many many different brands and models to deal with. Box 1:Newer watches-Top(Image removed from quote.)Drawer(Image removed from quote.)Box 2:Vintage watches-Top(Image removed from quote.)Drawer(Image removed from quote.)Box 3:Omega watches-They look great, but three of them need a full service.(Image removed from quote.)Box 4:"Beater watches"-(Image removed from quote.)Box 5:Cigar box with "smaller" men's vintage watches.Watches sitting on top of box-(Image removed from quote.)Tackle box:Misc watch stuff. Mostly non-working watches, but some working watches I don't care much for and might use for parts, bands, parts, etc. Extra bands, pins, and etc.(Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)
Thank you much, clown! Indeed, it is one of those 1980s/1990s brass mil-spec-replicas that were sold on TV infomercials aimed at WW2 veterans.I have had a couple of them, but combined the two into one really good one using the best parts from each.
If I pick another one up I'll PM you. I've seen them at yard sales, markets, and the store I work at from time to time. Usually less than $10 and just needing a good cleaning, leather strap and battery.
