      All,
      I am very nearsighted (between -6 and -7 in both eyes). With astigmatism. Now, in my late 50's I also have significant nearsightedness.
      I thought a flip up visor - which I could wear with my glasses would be best. I purchased an OptiVisor with a flip-down loupe. But not happy at all with the visual quality.
      I know you get what you pay for in optics. What is the best type of device for someone with old-bad eyes.
      I have never used a regular loupe - but thinking that may be the way to go. Any of you guys (or gals) have a reccomendation?
      -Paul

      I have an acquaintance who is closing his shop due to health after 43 years.  He has a large quantity of parts, stems, crowns, crystals and all the paraphernalia one would accumulate after a long period in the business.  He needs to liquidate his shop.  This isn't a "Hey do you have a __ for a __." kind of post.  We're talking serious stuff here.  Mass quantities.   If you need parts, equipment, etc. for your practice, please let me know.  I will pass along his email contact  to you.  Obviously, this is useful primarily only to those in the U.S. due to shipping costs.  But he has a huge amount of useful goods and is 100 miles South of Atlanta.  PM me if you need something.
       
      Thanks,

      Hi, I have a few bits and pieces, and clocks. And I am very interested in horology tips, conunundrms etc.

      Would it be interesting for this forum to set up a list where we could exchange things like parts and tools?  I happen to have duplicate tools from my lot purchases, and feel that those could be better used. No money involved. Would that be feasible?

    • I found this info online. Which translates to - I think they are mistaken about the logo, since it shows two mountains not three, and the Blüemlisalp massif is kind of round the corner out of site of the main village so far as I recall, although you can possibly see the Fründenhorn
    • Its actually quite an attractive piece, though all those extra rocks in there might make it a tad heavier than strictly necessary.
    • I've placed my usual derisory bid on a number of "Kander" watches, over the last few months, and finally I was successful, securing this 21 jewel non runner. What-er watches? I hear you cry.  Kander - named after the river that works its way from the glaciers high up in the Berner Alps, past the now sadly defunct watchmaker's former home of Frutigen (postcard below). This relatively small maker like many others bit the dust in the "quartz crisis" in the 1980s. Now most people have probably never heard of the Kander river, nor would they associate the mountain peaks on the watch maker's logo with anything in particular, but in fact they most likely represent the two peaks in the background on the right of the postcard, which dominate the view from the village.  How do I know? Simple, I climbed the Balmhorn when I was around fifteen in 1979, and later completed the Balmhorn Altels  traverse (climbing the Balmhorn crossing that obvious ridge in the picture to the Altels and descended from there), about ten years later, and have been through Frutigen many times, though not for a good few years now.
    • Nice job. The next one will be even better ;-)
    • Very nice watch collection.
