Elijah Reedy Speaks
I am Elijah Reedy, head of Goldsmith Watch Works. What better way to introduce myself than a story from 2008 about a German Alpina WWII military wrist watch that Rock invested in back in 2008.
I witnessed that investment. Rock was pretty excited, the battle went back and forth to the wire with two other interested parties. It seemed the Alpina Terval with an illuminated dial was a hot item. These were time pieces that the German military would have illuminated after they purchased them
I witnessed Rock ultimately win the auction for this beat up German Alpina Terval for 139.00. 110.00 in parts plus several hours and Rock had this baby looking brand new. The model had one one lug with a steel bar the other with a spring bar. He hammered a metal pin into the spring bar lug. he said the other lug with steel pin was done in the repair center when the spring bar hole would no longer hold a spring bar; that in the 1940’s, many watches had steel permanent pins placed when holes were damaged.
When he was through he placed a leather fixed strap and added red 24 hours to the re-illuminated dial and made a beauty of a time piece that netted $499.00 bucks! He threw in an appraisal and one year warranty.
On that day in 2008 I was hooked! I knew that besides the jewelry I would one day restore watches. Thus restoration of watches and jewelry became my passion!
Well, while Rock was putting me through the management end of my education a few weeks ago. I came across a similar time piece on eBay. The only difference was the fact the dial had yet to be illuminated and it had both spring bars. I decided to make an attempt to snatch her. I did and for $16.00.
$16.00??? imagine that!!!!
