Ahhh, the Bulgarian "artist" strikes again!  Amazing what can be achieved with bits of junk and a soldering iron sad.  On the tragic side, more and more orphaned V&C movements are flooding the market to be abused in this manner. OTOH Berny, I had to rescue this little chain fusee movement circa 1830s...
Dean, do you own a soldering iron?

I can mount it up in a decorative flower pot, called it property of Russian nobility, and make a fortune...bwaahaaahaaa enlightened
Great idea, DeanHow about this.

Get one of those Russian doll thingees, you know the one that has a doll in side a doll inside a doll etc. And on each doll's head a progessively smaller watch, from a large PW to a small pendant. Case doesn't matter as long as it's a VC movement. Then claim its from the long lost Romanov estate, a favourite of Rasputin. You'd clean up!!
Good idea...they seem to appreciate

Some suggestion: This might be the start of a nice project with the re-birth of this watch with the help of VC  or the Hour Lounge community ?
Berny, my first thought

was to encase it in a lucite or plastic holder so that it could be viewed while running.  I don't want to case it as a vintage watch for fear that someone after me might try to pass it off as genuine broken heart.
