For a modern off the shelf item….. this is the ONLY watch I will wear. ❤ my husband muchly for making it my Christmas present.
It winds itself by using a pendulum that swings with your body movement. You can see the jewels, the gears, the movement, the winding mechanism. Being on time has never been so much FUN! It’s ENJOYABLE to watch time pass.
Oh, and the model number, in case you wanted to track down one of your own: KC2486, made by Kenneth Cole

While gathering parts for a project I’m working on, I stumbled across a very nifty object that begs for someone to take it home and steampunk it. This poor lonely object is sitting on the basement floor of an antique conglomerate of dealers. I took pictures of it for you. I can give you their name and phone number and you can make arrangements to purchase it through them if you want. If they are unwilling to ship it, I’d even be willing to pick it up and mail it for you… though beware, its heavy. (obviously, if you pay for the shipping).
Secondhand Rose 14 N School St Lodi, CA 95240 (209) 339-1166
Buttons and knobs and graphs Oh My!!
It’s a working Oscilloscope. It’s $69.00 at the somewhat antique/consignment/mix of stuff place called Secondhand Rose in Lodi, CA. If you call and they say the What? Where?… It’s in the basement. Go down the stairs. If you walk straight ahead, it’s not the dealer RIGHT next to the stairs, but the one after that, on the right side. It’s on the floor behind his/her display case. I’m not selling this myself, nor do I get anything for it… I just think it’s begging to go home with someone who will treat it right. By right, I mean, do something awesome with it.
Closer view of the front
Manuals are available online. It says it’s operational and works. I know next to nothing about Oscilloscopes. They measure something about electricity. They make pretty lines and this thing has lots of knobs and switches and buttons.
