Re: WRUW June 19, 2017 thru June 24, 2017

Hey Mo that is an interesting watch! This is one from Hamilton that is just way out there! ;) I'm not sure what they were thinking, however with Disco and Polyester "Sans-a-belt" trousers, anything would be possible! For today the 1973 Day & Date 5007. People ask me about this every time I wear it, ...

Re: New Member

Just a thought about appraisals and valuing a watch or anything. It can become very subjective. I have overpaid for some watches and at other times felt I have "stole" them. As the old saying goes you need two people in bidding to get things interesting. Secondly, it is only worth as much as the nex...

Re: WRUW June 19, 2017 thru June 24, 2017

Very nice watches this week, Bluebonnet the Lawrence is striking! For me a 1968 Dateline A-680 with the JB Champion bracelet. Made for only one production year. Interesting note! I'm a slow learner, many of you already know this! :shock: I have had this watch for about three years, never wore it. It...

Re: Hamilton Auto Cal Delta in Stainless!!!

I'm not sure we would get anymore information unless an Ad popped up with the watch in it!

It actually is very nice looking watch, with very little wear.

I like the golden dial.... and chasing the correct crown! :)

Re: Uranus / Kreisler bracelet!!!

Thanks Susan! The bracelet is a dickens! I had parts a year ago, my attempt at trimming the leather with the insert was not a success. I'm sure there was a die they struck on very thin leather. So, the black pads came off a stainless bracelet. Oh here is the picture of the only other one I have see...

Re: Hamilton Auto Cal Delta in Stainless!!!

Todd, As you are aware it went at least 5 days in an open bid. I think the combination of it not being cataloged and the poor photos, the price stayed low. When I scan the library by numbers the library for 820004-3, it takes you to the 1972 Dateline A-596 with the different dial. In the number dire...

Grumpy, that is nice looking.

I like the documentation that can be found on the watches, these ads many times have a lot of insight.
