  • That pocket watch roulette wheel is very cool. I want it.

  • Cool. That roulette wheel must be worth pretty decent scratch to a collector, no?

    • There’s a similar one in much better condition on ebay for $400 or best offer. Maybe if the finder got it cleaned up? Or maybe the provenance is rare… The ebay one seems to be a mass-manufactured thing of a common/ recognizable brand.
