    Great boxes Vim! I love wood products, and the wood you chose has nice grains and appearance. I recognize a few of those 218 variants. I have examples of next to far right (top and bottom roll), and far right, middle roll. Perhaps another as well. Nice 218 collection.
    Nice displays Skypilot, Spaceview, and AccutronRedux (can't believe all those original cases in the drawer, sheez ).

    I thought it was about time I posted a pic of my second box of serviced Accutrons. These are all 218s and are all different from those in the first box. I am now making another two boxes out of a unique form of New Zealand Kauri.DSC02050.jpg

    In reply to Accutronitis and Skypilot, I have just four 214s which I will service when I have done some practicing on old movements. It has taken quite a while to build up a supply of 214 parts. Good 214s tend to be a lot more expensive than 218s and I usually miss out when I try to buy them. I keep all my serviced watches running on alkaline batteries which cost me less than 10c each, when bought in a pack of 200. I guess that there is a divergence of opinion on whether Accutrons should be kept running or not. The electrolytic capacitors will last longer if kept with a polarizing voltage on them, but I suppose index wheels must eventually wear out.

    Vim203, great collection of 218's and another fabulous box. Seeing your collection reminds me I'd like to pick up an "up/down" dial, and what about those stainless with vivid blue dials! Not sure I've ever seen one of those before.
