    Watch out(no pun intended) as the horology bug can bite hard. My habit started when my grandfather died and i inherited his 1950's gold Juvenia watch. Now it needed service and speaking with the local watchmaker i was drawn into the world of vintage watches which i started to collect back in the 70's. After a long stint in broadcasting i moved south and turned my hobby into my profession selling Patek, Rolex and other fine watches for one of the top jewelry stores in south Florida. Music and horology are passions of mine. Both my watches and music equipment are arcane technology that i love and collect.
  16. Vintage Yamaha CR-2040 is a monster receiver and offers 120w per channel. Excellent condition with unmarked face but some marks on case. Yes it works but some lamps are out so i would recommend a service. Due to massive size and weight pick up only. Located in the West Palm Beach FL area. Was $850. Price reduced to $750.
