Re: Around The World Hamilton

Did you ever forward the watch along? :D I would have liked to get it back a year or two ago. The intent was to send it hither and yon to different recipients for pics around the globe but, since we started, I have changed jobs and now do plenty of globe trotting. It's not the same thing but I've b...

Re: Hamilton TM-2601

What an excellent looking watch! Nice find. Seems like it's one for the photo catalogue.

Is that "circle" on the inside case back damage from the weight?

Re: Black Face Hamilton 20's or 30's??

Hi I'm new to the forum and am trying to identify a family heirloom. I've searched through all the catalogues and cannot find a single black-face example. It's a square design etched on sides, 14 kt gold, 17 jewels. As stamped on the inside case back, it's 14kt gold filled (the 1930's version of go...

Re: Black Face Hamilton 20's or 30's??

The dial on your watch has been refinished to black, it didn't originally come with a black dial. Looks great with a black dial, though. Bryan - This post reminded me of the discussion around SeanO's black dial Tonneau (here: http://vintagewatchforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=297 ). There was a lot ...

Re: FS: Hamilton 'Brooke' 980

Hi Doug Thanks for sharing your sister's watch here. I thought you may be interested in the following. The Brooke has an unusual case geometry (curved to fit the wrist so it sits up for ease of reading) and was only catalogued for sale in 1938 and 1939. These are factors that make it a desirable pie...

Incoming Model 22

Thought I'd make this post because I know I'm not the only one to have recently welcomed a Model 22, 35 size chronometer watch (aka ship's chronometer) after many years of looking. (There's your cue Tom....) There's some excellent online references covering the historic context and restoration of th...
