On this page you will find watches that are on a layaway plan. If you have any purchase that falls into this category please check this page to make sure your watch is listed here. If it is not contact me immediately. These watches can only be purchased by the person placing them on layaway. You may see watches marked On Hold, these watches have been spoken for but payment is coming by mail, these watches will not be listed here. On Hold watches will remain on hold for 7 days if payment has not been received by the end of 7 days and the buyer has not requested an extension the watch will be removed from the on hold list and made available for others to purchase. If you call to request a watch be put on hold please follow up with an email so I have a good record of who the watch is on hold for. This is important in cases when another buyer makes a payment for the same watch at about the same time, so I don't ship to the wrong person. This can and does happen as unlikely as it seems it would be.

 

There are no fees or charges for this. We offer layaway purchasing for buyers that may find this way of fitting a watch purchase into their budget useful. Should something cause you to need to cancel the purchase we give a full refund, including credit card fees, if any, when PayPal allows it, (usually 59 days). We do not have fixed payments for watches on layaway but we do request that you make the first payment within thirty (30) days and then make a payment each month. If the initial payment is not received within thirty days and you have not made other arrangements the watch will be removed from layaway. If the initial payment was made but no further payments received for 60 days you will be contacted to see if you still want the watch. 

If you make payments using PayPal send the money to tgrams@chartermi.net 

Payments made by check or money order should be made payable to Terry Grams.

If you have a watch on layaway please check the layaway page on the website to be sure it is listed there, if not notify me immediately.

Keep all of my emailed receipts and other records of your payments. If a receipt from me does not agree with your records let me know as soon as possible. Things like corrupted computer files do happen and while I try to maintain good paper backup records of layaway purchases they can stretch over a considerable period of time and I can make mistakes, I am a much better watchmaker than accountant.

Watches that are spoken for but not yet paid for that are not on layaway are marked "On Hold".  

If something happens and you cannot complete the payments I will refund everything you have paid. If you use paypal for payments when these payment are more than 60 days old they can not be refunded directly from the original payment so the credit card fees cannot be recovered. Once shipped watches sold on layaway are not returnable, if there are issues with the watch I will repair them but because of the length of time these watches are held while payments are being made I can't offer any return for a cash refund.

Also don't forget that PayPal offers interest free financing for up to six months on qualifying purchases.

Hamilton Grade: 992B

The movement was serviced 5/12/17 and the watch is running and keeping time.

This grouping is for the serious Hamilton collector and, in my opinion should not be used as an every day carry.

Included in this group is:

  1. The 992B movement
  2. The original bakelite case*
  3. The original outer box
  4. The original watch cloth cover
  5. A separate matching back mid emp. glass cover for use as a display case.                          

The gold filled Hamilton case shows almost no wear and some of the original factory brush marks as still visible.

The original Railway Special Melamine dial in excellent condition.

The original mid emp glass crystal in excellent condition.

Illinois Grade: Bunn Special

The movement was ser4viced 6/10/16 and the watch is running and keeping time.

Housed in a two tone white gold and yellow gold Bunn Special case. The contrast is best shown in the side view of the watch.

Porcelain enamel Illinois 23 jewel 60 hour dial has a repair at 12 and a hairline by 2. I prefer this dial even with the repair over a perfect standard dial.

New beveled glass crystal.

This watch would sell of about $1700.00 if the dial were perfect and the case had just a little less wear but this one is offered at below bottom book and is a real bargain.
