Lots of Timex parts!

I recently puchaced a entire watchmakers inventory and tools.

With it came hundreds and hundreds of Brand new Timex parts.
There must be 500 crystals, every shape and size imagineable!
maybe 400 crowns gold plate and silver
Stems up the wazoo!
I can not even begin to count the hands!
second hands, hour hands, minute hands, subdial hands!
And then there are just hundreds of parts I have no idea what they are!

All parts are new in the little envelopes with the part # on them
Most are in the blue clear plastic cases with the part # reference inside the cover

Some are in blue styrofoam boxes with dividers
all of the hands are in little clear capsules individualy.

The only parts that don't seem to have a # are the o-rings.
Probably two hundred o-rings of different sizes
They are in the blue boxes

The old watchmaker worked on watches until 1977
So my guess is these parts are all for ? 50s to seventys?

If anyone has a use for these parts let me know.
I would like to see them go to use.
I am not into watch repair.
I just wanted the bench and buffing tools.
But i had to buy it all!

If someone wants all of the Timex parts $50 plus shipping?
Is that a fair price?
Or maybe just trade me for something?
I can e- mail pics if someone is interested.

If I'd seen this first in the sales forum, I'd likely be very interested. However, to protect the fourm, I refuse to buy from people who disregard the rules and sell in the discussion forum, even if I see it later in the sales forum.

I certainly did not mean to offend you.
I am new to the whole forum thing.
This forum is not very easy to navigate for me.
I apologize to anyone who I may have offended by my obviously sheer ignorance!

I was just trying to help someone who may have a use for Timex parts.

I'm a gunsmith not a watchmaker.

Thanks for the welcome by the way.

I apologize again for posting in the wrong place.
I'm a idiot.
Parts are sold.
Moderator please delete. ( I would do it myself, but I'm not sure if that is against the rules)
I'm glad to see these parts go to a good home.
I was only trying to help someone out who is into Timex.
