At my late sister-in-laws

...we found these two in a lockbox. Caravelle started after winding, bringing them home.

Big thanks to Kurt (mrsnak) for an assist with his extreme vintage knowledge.

Please extend my condolences to your wife. Going what you are going is never easy.

Love the Caravelle Tim. Caravelle was the first stainless steel watch I ever owned. Still have it as a matter of fact!

We'll be putting a battery in it, and if it works, we'll be selling it, Derek. Wink

Well, my AD is posting and selling the Casio for us. They have an ebay store, and were really impressed with the mint condition of the watch ("was it ever worn?"), so we'll see what we get, hopefully around a hundred. It'll be posted Monday.
Also took in some of the other jewelery that was there, to add that money to the "estate account" as well as some gold that Robin never wears any longer... wow, was that worth the trip. Along with that, and the pay she finally received for a couple of specials she worked on, really good week (for her). Wink

Great to hear Tim. Now I hope Vahram didn't let you lick my watch while you were there!
