Default ROCKFORD--DEAL OF THE CENTURY FOR 149ERS ONLY

BY 149 MEMBER JOHN FOGERTY--Here is a view of what the handbook looks like at $9, this is a special offer for 149ers!



This is a new publication and based on all new research. It corrects errors in Rockford’s published serial number listings, and it fills in many of the gaps and omitted runs in the original lists published by Rockford. Also included is a listing for serial numbers above 824,000, reconstructed from observations of surviving watches, plus movement illustrations and production estimates.

It's 95 pages and sized at 5½” x 8” for easy use at marts, flea markets and elsewhere. Comes in a protective padded mailer.

Superb quality book and binding for the price.


Honestly, as I am a Rockford hound, with a public database of Rockfords online, It will take me a month or so to go carefully through it, cover to cover.

Huge Kudos to John Fogerty for a finished work.

Default from John F

A new work with original research on Rockford watches. Errors in Rockford’s original published serial number lists are corrected in this handy book, and it is further supplemented with movement descriptions and information filling in many of the gaps in the original listings, as well as for runs that were completely omitted in the original serial number lists published by Rockford. It is also heavily footnoted with data on variations within runs. Also included is a listing for Rockford watches with serial numbers above 824,000, reconstructed from completely new observations of surviving watches, plus movement illustrations and production estimates.

This conveniently-sized (5½” x 8”) handbook is just the right size to carry for easy reference at marts, flea markets and elsewhere, and is securely spiral-bound to open flat. 95 pages. Comes in a protective padded mailer.

$15.00 to non 149ers
