Key to abbreviations: "APW" = American pocket watch | "cal" = caliber | "ct" = carat weight | "ctw" = total carat weight for multiple stones | "DS" = double sunk (for dials) | "dwt" = pennyweight (20 per ounce troy) | "EPW" = European pocket watch | "g" = gram (31.1 per troy ounce) | "GJS" = gold jewel setting(s) | "HC" = hunting case | "hl" = hairline | "hls" = hairlines | "HS" = hairspring | "J" = jewel(s) | "K" = karat of gold quality | "KW" = key-wind | "KWKS" = key-wind key-set | "LS" = lever set | "mm" = millimeter | "mvt" = movement | "NOS" = new old stock | "NR" = not running | "OF" = open face | "PW" = pocket watch | "QS" = quick set | "ref" = reference | "RR" = railroad | "S" = size | "s#" = serial number | "SS" = single-sunk (for dials) | "SW-LS" = stem-wind lever-set | "SW-SS" = stem-wind stem-set | "WW" = wristwatch "Running" only means that the balance and escapement are performing in healthy fashion and without apparent defect, but does not guarantee timekeeping or warrantee future performance; unless otherwise noted, our timepieces are not serviced by us, and we do not know when they were last serviced from our sources. We do our best to indicate any potential problems or needs for repair. The Jones & Horan plain English grading system follows this general order from top to bottom for mvts, component parts, metal dials, hands and cases: Mint | Near Mint | Excellent | Fine (the average grade for most used, running watches) | Fair | Poor. We no longer use "good" as a grade as it can be misleading, so it only applies to function (see below). We then describe any salient defects that should be called to the attention of the potential buyer. With respect to wear, we also use the following terms in order: No wear | Hardly any wear | Very little wear | Little wear | Very light wear | Light wear | Medium wear | Ample wear | Substantial or abundant wear | Worn out. These general terms are used in combination with precise descriptions of defects for further elaboration where needed. Enamel dials are not necessarily graded, but called "flawless" when free of cracks, chips or hairlines, which are structural and always noted. Surface defects such as scratches, discoloration or graphical defects may be present on a perfect dial, and are noted separately. The term, "Good," is only used alone to indicate that the watch or its function is doing what it should be doing, as in "good running order, good repeat function and tone, good chronograph and date functions," etc. These functions are not rated or graded. "Good crystal" means without meaningful defect, as does "Good dial." --------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------ Terms Of Use

We will e-mail you an invoice no later than the morning following the sale, if you are a winning bidder. (Please note that these invoice e-mails sometimes end up in "spam" or "junk" mail folders, so please check there if you have not received one.) We are not set up to accept credit cards directly, despite the fact that the "Payment Methods" tab would seem to indicate so. That is a page that is "an overall Hibid account setting" and cannot be removed, according to the programmers. Hibid is the company that hosts our auctions on their website. If you add credit card information to place it "on file" with HiBid, that information does not transfer to our software after the auction.
Free domestic shipping except where otherwise indicated in the description of a lot. A SHIPPING CHARGE WILL BE ADDED TO ALL INTERNATIONAL INVOICES. Please note that the auction contains a few lots that we will not ship, and shipping these lots only will be the responsibility of the buyer. These include some larger, delicate, and/or heavy items, including some of the clocks, a music box, a sign, etc. Each lot contains clear shipping notes in the description where needed. For the rest of the lots, we will ship in-house as follows: For packages valued $300 or less, we ship USPS Priority Mail, signature required, for Domestic Customers. All packages are insured. Items WILL BE SHIPPED TO THE ADDRESS ON OUR INVOICE unless you request otherwise by phone or email BEFORE making payment. For packages valued over $300, we ship via FedEx 2nd day. IF YOUR PURCHASE MEETS OR EXCEEDS $300 AND YOU DO NOT WANT ITEMS SHIPPED VIA FEDEX, PLEASE NOTIFY US WHEN MAKING PAYMENT. Domestic customers: If you desire faster delivery, please notify us immediately. We will add the shipping surcharge for the expedited shipping to your invoice. Once payment is received (including the shipping upgrade fee), we can arrange FedEx overnight shipping. International Customers: Feel free to contact us for a quote on shipping charges. For shipments valued at $300 or less, we ship via USPS Priority Mail in our own boxes (not flat rate). Where the value is over $300, we ship via FedEx Priority International. IF YOU DO NOT WANT ITEMS SHIPPED VIA FEDEX, PLEASE NOTIFY US WHEN MAKING PAYMENT. We have found FedEx to be the most reliable and safe method to ship higher ticket items and get them through customs. We have also found that when shipping via USPS, in order to have tracking available past the United States border, we must ship in our own boxes, not in the cheaper flat rate USPS boxes. We do not change lot values on international shipping documents. ALL SHIPMENTS ARE INSURED.
