Re: Babel Fish -- still not quite there

: here is a great babel fish translation of a
: Heuer listing, from ebay Germany . . . it
: includes some amazing phrases, and is well
: worth the read. I was following the story
: pretty well, until I got to the part about
: the "eye pasture".

: the link below will take you to the auction
: listing.

: Thus loves collecting tanks and fan of old
: classical chronographen, which is offered
: here raises surely many questions. Genuinly
: or not genuinly, he is genuine and
: originates from a large THIS YEAR
: collection. Grischa time World bought and is
: this clock official stock. In the technical
: expenditure of 03.2003 DAY THIS YEAR Swiss
: avant-garde Since 1860 is to be admired this
: Chronographe in steel housings on page 42.
: Here this Chronographe in beautiful solid
: brass housing is offered. Possibly a
: previous owner let insert even a view soil,
: or could also originals be. An old uhrmacher
: of THIS YEAR, is today still in the service
: does not say one white today not times to
: more which everything was built. Many things
: were not noted or noted which the collecting
: tank today be important could. But many
: clock companies in such a way are today,
: nobody took to which one as poison clocks
: will collect. The beautiful three-part brass
: housing has a diameter of 48 mm, an overall
: height of 17,50 mm. The impact measure for
: the yellow leather volume (of deer) measures
: 18 mm. The housing one sees that well comes
: from a THIS YEAR watch
: taschenuhr-Chronographen, which was
: converted into a wrist-watch. One sees also
: in the pictures from the magazine. Besides
: the military staff departments in the course
: of the 1 required. World war ever more
: frequently after bracelet
: armband-Chronographen. The junior Charles A.
: This year used his chance and his relevant
: experiences. With the raw work specialists
: John and Charles Reymond in Les Bioux,
: Vallee de Joux, he ordered 15-linige
: chronographen Ebauche. In the sales catalog
: of 1914 offered this year the Chronographe
: with minute counter as singularly on the
: market, owing to unlimited application
: possibilities high estimated in the world of
: the military, the medicine and the sport.
: After the turn of the century remained for
: the cool analyst Charles A. Predominantly
: did not entrust this year hidden, that to
: sportsmen, military and Mrs their precious
: time of the wrist-watch. Ratchet wheel
: schaltrad-Chronographen the Caliber is with
: the number (Calibernummer) marked 56615. It
: is in beautiful condition, nearly an eye
: pasture. It was in every detail examined and
: functioned perfectly. An eye pasture is
: naturally the beautiful and perfect white
: Emaile dial equipped with Arabic numerals,
: and outside around with a 60iger Minuterie.
: Between index 5 and 7 a small second is
: embedded with blued pointer. Above with
: index 12 30 minute counters, likewise with
: blued pointer. From the center a long fine
: blued pointer of central stop customer
: turns. The dial and the Caliber (view soil)
: are protected by plexiglass. The white
: Emaile dial is marked with the THIS YEAR
: Logo (signature). These chronographen is one
: of the FIRST CLOCKS series of THIS YEAR on
: the DIAL with the THIS year LOGO was marked.
: The whole is operated via the pusher by the
: upper elevator crown of the (12) goes (thus
: a Eindruecker Chronographe). Under crown
: (with 6) is as Zierde. Evenly as said
: already above, it many questions to raise,
: it is issued with us in the business and can
: be visited there. But it is to be found
: beautifully and surely very rarely. Grischa
