One Pic a Day (1 of 7)

August 13, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Here is my first photo/pic for my list of seven.  If you didn't read my previous post for instructions click this link.

My first pic is of a Westclox pocket watch owned by my grandfather.  I searched on Bing and Google extensively but could not find a match.  I have a few emails out to some watch repair shops that specialize in vintage watches.  So I am hoping for some feedback.  In the meantime enjoy photo 1 of 7.

Update from a watch repair shop:
 

This watch is called the Man-Time and was made from 1966 to 1968. The model number is 40058 and it retailed for $9.98 when it was new. There were three models:

40056 Chrome and Gray

40058 Chrome and Black

40060 Chrome and Charcoal

There was also a vertical model.

Here’s a picture of it in the 1966 catalog

I am glad you found my blog.  I am a photographer with a passion for awesome shots.  I go to great lengths to capture many of my photos.  I will re-visit a location over and over knowing there is a spectacular photo just waiting to be had if I am there at the right time.   I also enjoy finding how to do some abstract projects (check out my time-lapse post) and will be writing about them.

Send me a note via my contact page for some projects you would like to see me try and write about.  I am not afraid to try almost any project.  Doing the obscure forces me to do things that I don't do with the typical photo shoot and helps me learn even more.
