They're trained to spot jewelry or expensive watches = potential for big tips.

Must have been a while ago. Th Feds busted the Gold Club several years ago. They sold off the furnishings, building and lot. There were plans to demolish the building, but it appears that it had been converted to a nightclub.

OK, I was thinking more classic guns/watches, but this is cool too! Glad to see it at least seems to have the mod's blessing for now - was afraid it would be "off topic" with so many semi's. Keep 'em coming!

Ok I see your watches and raise you a Randall knife.

Seeing as this is the revolver forum. How about a 29-3, a 29-2 Nickle, and a 57. Along with those I have my old Movado, My Rado which I like, but it is a little dressy for casual attire. Mostly I wear my Rolex Datejust. The Randall Bowie is, well a Randall Bowie.

So that was a cheap solution to the itch.
Honestly, I did just the opposite of you; I took a black GMTII and installed a Pepsi bezel.

Wow - these are great pics and inspire me to maybe take a few to add! I've recently inherited my Grandfathers old Waltham pocket watch with his initials engraved on the back (don't know much about it yet - still doing research - it's an open faced model with the dial next to the 3).

The only old guns I have of his and my fathers are long guns, but I may have my own old revolver that would do just the trick.

Keep em coming!
