Re: Lady and Tiger watch

Here are some images from Google.

While some of these may be redials and have subtle variations, you will note that the dial should have a rectangular format, like the watch itself, not oval.

Re: Lady and Tiger watch

Re: Caution to eBay Sellers re Item Condition

Thanks for the heads-up on this. You are welcome. Crazy, isn't it? I am not at all surprised that you didn't get anywhere on the phone with eBay, but hats off to you for trying, LOL. I would never have noticed the change they made to the wristwatch Pre-Owned definition it hadn't been brought up by ...

Re: Caution to eBay Sellers re Item Condition

This is not quite right but, it is closer since it states that there are issues. I would rather it be called As Is \ found. For parts or not working - Mo, that description would indeed be fine, but it is not an option in the Wristwatch category — there is no "For Parts/Not Working" dropdown there. ...

Caution to eBay Sellers re Item Condition

Hey, Folks, I just noticed a wonky change to the condition settings eBay is making available for watch sales. Previously, a watch listed with the "Pre-Owned" designation covered vintage watches that were both working or not working. Here is the old standard for the Pre-Owned designation: condition d...

Re: 80s Diver Prototype?

I have some documentation/confirmation that this indeed a golfing watch. Just need to find the time to go back into my records and hunt up the info. . . .

Re: Compulsive Solid Gold Hamilton Buckle Questions

So, in conclusion, whether the buckle was solid 10K or 14K gold, Hamilton did not often stamp the buckle tangs ("pins"/"tongues") with the gold composition.

Re: Compulsive Solid Gold Hamilton Buckle Questions

Susan, when you say “when Hamilton downgraded to 10K”, I don’t think it was a downgrade, I think it was to match 10K solid gold buckles with 10K solid gold cases especially in the 1950s when there were a lot of 10K solid gold Hamiltons. Oh, I didn't mean that Hamilton downgraded and put 10K buckles...
