The only clock guy's topic is that torsion subject and the "Sam" connection.

Finally made mention in the 149 listing, even if I had to restort to studying one of the least collected Manufacturers.

I am honored to be listed with the other 149 guys, many of whom have been my mentor for several years.

Default Research chairs

Henry,
I feel the same way as you in the sense that I am honored to be included with the names of these researchers and mentors who I have heard of and read their research for merely a year now. Also a great many people do not consider Dollar Watches to be as worthy of study as some other American Manufactured Pocket Watches, but I have tried to express the thought, that yes, they are an important part of the Study of American Pocket Watches. I'd like to thank Sam Kirk and Jon Hanson for their guidance and making the study of horology available to everyone.
