We did this already -

I love those 16 oz silver cases! I am thinking about asking Peter Wuischpard if he'll make me one!

I like them all and my ambition is to have one of each.

I am constantly amazed how many different ways have been thought up to achieve the same end result.

I like a lot of different types of cases. I love dedications if done well and particularly when you can trace them. I really like crisp new coin and sterling cases with interesting engraving and a nice patina.

Yep, those patinated sharp, crispy silver cases do have a nice smell to them!

How in the heck does one get to the engraving to shoot a photograph of the inscription inside of the back cover?

casemaker R&A

I couldn't resist picking up a late '60s model '57 Waltham last week because it is in a heavy silver case - I believe coin - with a cuvette name and dated 1871. Pictures to follow. I'm a sucker for early dated watches. This one is completely original and running. I'll just need to take it down for a good cleaning. Twice in one week, including this watch, I have seen the hallmark R&A. I hit the search button to see if anyone else has asked about it, and came up empty. Can I ask someone to recall info in head about the casemaker, or consult the Ehrhardt book that I am still looking for?

Do muckle cases have something to do with R&A?
