I've heard that this model Timex is considered very collectable. Anyone have information or photos? Thanks.

I may be mistaken, but weren't all of the movements, or most of them using the V-conic movement? This uses a balance wheel in which the staff of the wheel ends in a "V" and this V sits into a cone shaped receptacle. This was supposed to eliminate the need for jewels.
