    Default Kudos to Chris Radek

    For those of you who have had Accutrons restored by Chris, I have to add my kudos for the work he did on my 175 year old M I Tobias pocket watch, he resurrected it back to life and made it look new. I will recommend him to anyone who needs a watch restored.

    It is an M I Tobias, Massey III from 1847, presented to my Great, great, great, great grandfather from his troop of the 7th regiment, New York National Guard on Christmas 1847 for being promoted to Captain.

    A very special watch. I love the engravings. That regiment has an interesting history. You should reach out to the New York Historical Society. They might have more records.

    What a spectacular watch! Really like the “pair case”. Wonderful to have it still in the family. About 50 years ago I was at the Hershey, PA auto flea market and came across a pocket watch that I bought. It is engraved as being presented to a man on his 78th birthday by his family. Still have it and had it serviced a year or so ago. Almost 60 years ago, when I was 18 or so I bought an early 1800s pair case pocket watch in a pawn shop for $12. It was made in London and has the chain fusee drive. A few years later an elderly watchmaker fixed the catch on the outer case and had it re-plated. Still have that one too.

    uscJake87, Don't worry about the history, I have every book ever written about the 7th Regiment.
