Another watch that is in the mail is a 16 size South Bend with a grade 215 movement. It’s in a little worse shape. The case needs to be replated, it needs a new balance staff, new hands and possibly a new dial. Looks like I can get the staff, though I need to check with my books to make sure it’s the right part. After that comes the fun of figuring out whether it’s friction fit staff or riveted:)
