Anyone have a Chronograph A they're willing to part with?

I have someone looking for a Chronograph A and told them I'd ask around... anyone have one they're willing to part with?

Here's the image from the photo library

Re: Langford that just sold on eBay

Yeah, I thought the same thing. Nice Langford case but the rest was not correct, including the 980 movement.

Re: April Arrivals... What's New?

Here's a new addition to the photo library... a 1962 M79-2 with it's original bracelet and original box. I've seen red boxes before but never with a watch. My new hypothesis is red boxes were for the M-series watches. https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-752rshEmrTU/WtJq0plCHsI/AAAAAAAATds/Xx0uNV3uRQwUW1B5XNo...

Re: October Arrivals... >>> What's New?

Go for it Dave.

I had to update my blog to get rid of photo bucket links too. What a pain! But my blog has 650+ models on there so if you need a photo feel free to link to it.

Re: System of the Hamilton Dash models (4 or 5 digits plus dash)

That's a great list and makes a lot of sense.

I had noticed the same thing on the 800-series models but didn't make the connection between the 63 and 64 and the 689 and 694 movements.

Very helpful though. Thanks for sharing!

Re: Some nice Hamiltons on eBay lately

The Sherwood dials are so fragile too that one in great shape should really demand a premium. You see more K-475's than you do Sherwoods... not that you can draw inferences on values.

I love that automatic version... let me know if you want it overhauled and on the blog!

Re: Unknown Hamilton

Interesting... looks like the dial is refinished (and not that well). Maybe it was a Tiffany and maybe not. It does make you wonder how the watches came about though.

Re: Some nice Hamiltons on eBay lately

I happened to get this Sherwood T in February. I had to dig deep to get it but I've never seen another for sale. Came with it's original box too. Anyone want to venture a guess on what it's value would be? It's hard to say when there aren't a lot of comps. https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-nMoI_LuJMKE/WpIh...

Re: Hamilton Sentinel WWII TWA presentation watch

Awesome research Bryan. I wonder when the Sentinel officially became the Secometer?

Re: 1931 Perry - WGF/YGF?

Maybe... the last four digits of the case back serial number are typically stamped onto the back of the center of the case and scratched into the inside of the bezel (as pseudo Roman numerals). So if the case back base serial number 654321 you should see 4321 stamped on the center and IIII III II I ...
