    Lindbergh-Weems Second-Setting Watch
    From: Ed Popko
    Date: 2018 Sep 21, 07:08 -0700

    One of NavList random 'three-pics' (fabulous idea Frank) brought up Gary LaPook's fun writeup and recreation of the Lindbergh-Weems second-setting watch.  http://fer3.com/arc/m2.aspx/LHA-listing-minute-looking-for-LaPook-jan-2015-g29895

    I have been somewhat house-bound lately recovering for short hospitalization so with nothing better to do, I wrote a PostScript program to recreate the various watch faces. I cut them out of paper and make a kind of pseudo watch and play with finding the sun's GHA.

    Attached is the master set of clock faces.  A joke, I guess, but fun none-the-less. Certainly not as creative as Gary's Dymo watch recreation.

    What is surprising is how little 'how to use' information there is on this watch. And it's quite a collectors item too. Longines recreation, at $4,000+, doesn't provide much information either. Perhaps yuppies willing to pay this amount are more interested in show than substance. Gary's al-cheapo recreation and writeup gives more information, by far, than anything posted.
