    Subject: [NavList] Weems Second Setting Navigation Watch
     

    A Waltham, Weems, second setting, torpedo boat, navigation, watch has just been listed on ebay.It is in rough shape needing a dial restoration and probably a full service.It has been listed as an astronomers sidereal pocket. I don't think he actually knows what it really is and with the condition it is in I think someone could probably get a good deal on it.http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-Waltham-Astronomers-23-Jewel-Vanguard-Sidereal-Pocket-Watch-Free-Shipping-/172385835073?hash=item2822ff1841:g:3tkAAOSwB09YDkGX&rmvSB=true .Here is a picture of mine.I have only seen 6 of these and they are all in private collections except one that is on display at the Smithsonion in the Time and Navigation display.
