Thread: Figured out a use for my Ebel promo picture frame.

  1. #1

    Figured out a use for my Ebel promo picture frame.

    Hey Cats,

    This was given to me by my Bud who is the boss at one of my favorite ADs, if cane with book style brochures and so forth. Is all leather wrapped with stitch work and lexan glass (which I removed).

    Turned out pretty neat me thinks.





    Peace,
    Preston

    Tragic! I'll give you a few bucks for it before you poke too many holes in it.

    Left is a Waltham military made for serviceman as a factory item not a forces issue.

    The other is an Elgin used for the same purpose but it's actually more of a wrist watch that got a lot of use as a military.
    There are schrapnel guards available for both.

    I did a full restoration on both including replacement mainsprings.
