These two came from the Master Mariner Collection debuted by Jeager LeCoultre in the late '50s. The chrono is powered by a beautiful VJ-72 and the automatic has the cal 476-3 bumper. Both are solid gold screw backs. I bought the chrono at the National in July and the automatic yesterday at the Auburn Regional.

Geno,

It certainly would not have been worth a trip for you. This has become a small show. There were 134 tables and about 250 registrations. This years format worked well with a tailgate and mart setup Friday afternoon and the mart on Saturday only. The people who were there seemed to like it. The attendance seems to have been held down by a few major clock and watch auctions going on at the same time. An absolutely crisp original Howard series III KW in 18k changed hands. I sold a bunch of wrist watches and a couple of pockets. I picked up a cool sort of early Ham 936 PL and the LeCoultre.

There were a couple of California movement buyers there but not much in the way of quality movements.
