Watch oil and watch pins for hairsprings

I've been hoarding 'small things' for ages and they've been looking for a home. The printer's tray that J bought me for my birthday will provide a perfect home, as well as giving me even more of an excuse to buy 'small things'.

Dad has given me this lovely old Watch Oil bottle which he says was his dad's [ I think he used to make clocks as a bit of a hobby]. It's branded J.D. Windel, and has such a funny little label that i had to draw it.

Also in my collection of 'small things' is this little box which neatly follows the watch maker theme. I found it in a charity shop in Kingsbridge last summer. and still contains 3 of the original 'watch pins for hair springs'.
