I seem to have caught some sort of bug , just over a year ago I was well into rep watches of all sorts ,then I bought by chance one of Martin's builds (Irate03) needless to say something happened because I have sold off most of my other watches ,and bought another lovely build from Martin.
recently I decided I wanted to make one of my own, and set about my "cunning plan". anyway ,thinking that a build with a "Cort" at its heart was beyond me I set about buying a couple of Molnija's , starting with 4 3602's except one turned out to be a 3608 ,stripped of its transfer gear mechanism. then I saw an early "Molly" , quality well above the later ones with bevelled edges to the bridges , recessed screws on the gears, and nice decoration , and bought another 5 of those (1951-55) halfway through this "binge" my father in-law spotted a Cortebert 616 in his local flea market, and after some discussion he bought it for me at a spiffingly good price , not enough I bought another of the same watch (Speciale) online . and yesterday bought a Hamilton 917 from the good old USA. (err... not pictured )
so that's my tale of woe, and having just received all the necessary stuff to create a 3646 from Gordon, I get the feeling that things could get tricky in the coming weeks / months.

100 years later and still keeping railroad time. Just replaced the damaged crystal on this one with a Sternkreuz N. At some point I'll upgrade to a mineral glass. My photography doesn't do the movement decoration any justice...
