Default An Ambulance full of watches & parts

Some of you may recall a post I made about a fellow named Alex Archbold who runs an antiques business called Curiosity Inc in Edmonton where he uncovered a Seiko "Pogue". He also hosts a YouTube channel under the same name. Personally, I find his videos very entertaining. Thought you watchmakers and tinkerers might get a kick out of this;

This fellow has had some great results. I remember an episode of his channel where he scored a ziplock bag of watches which consisted of several vintage Omegas and Seikos (one being a nice 6139 Pogue type but I don't recall the color). This episode above is quite a windfall of misc. watch shop supplies, stock and furnishings and goodies.

Nice Pogue cases in that lot and really clean H link, also looks like a panda case and bracelet maybe, bright looking yellow inner bezel. UFO case, bezel & crystal and kakume dial.

That is just ridiculous. The haul of crowns is a gold mine, but getting it to market...oy.
