Went to Hattiesburg, MS yesterday to a big outdoor Antique/junk sale. I'm always on the outlook for old watches that don't work to disassemble and use the parts for steampunk projects. Was lucky enough to find these for a dollar apiece. Already got them disassembled and ready to go for the next project.

One of these days I need to thin my supply of watches. Now I buy junk watches and most are battery so I buy for face alone. I do not like putting all those small parts in there. I will use gears only. Just a matter of choice. But I have a ton of Disney and so many watches that I pull from the lots I buy and keep those seperate. Have a ton of junk watches. Before steampunk got popular you could buy junk watches by the pound on ebay for practically nothing. Shipping was the cost. Also flee markets was another source.
