HI all, I've been trying to find a wind up watch head. Does anyone have a source or am I looking for a dinosaur? Everything that I've found to this point has been battery.
If you mean mechanical movements, Esslinger carries a selection of inexpensive ones.http://www.esslinger.com/mechanical-watch-movements/
Otto Frei carries a bunc of higher quality ones from ETA in Switzerland.http://www.ofrei.com/page_183.html
Thanks so much for your suggestion but I'm not a watch person. Would like one all put together!

Indian Jewelry Supply, Ijsinc.comhttp://Ijsinc.com, carries watches for mounting on cuff bracelets. They are either plain or have a Southwestern design. They are around $10. The descriptions doesn't say if they're battery or windup. Some are quartz movement and that indicates they're battery. Call them to be sure.
Thanks Rick, I did call them and they said all battery-powered.
