Re: 2017 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament "WatchFanatics" Gr

Rick, Sorry that the Hoosiers made the "Not Invited Tournament" once again, but maybe you'll have better luck with the next coach. I'm sorry to see Tom Crean go-seeing consistently bad Indiana teams always does my heart good :) . Perhaps a few chairs thrown across the floor in Assembly Hall might ha...

Re: P. S. Bartlett the man

Later in life, he owned a jewelry store in Elgin.

I have seen PLs signed for "P.S. Bartlett & Co, Elgin Ill."

Most of the ones I've seen have been 1883 model Walthams-they can be a bit of a head scratcher if you're not aware of this :)

Filled mine out. All I'll say that my pick for winning the tournament is fairly predictable :)

That would be a great game.
Coach "Muggins" has long been a thorn in our side. I hope the game happens!

Re: Hamilton on Ebay-What the heck is it?

Thanks guys for the replies. I honestly thought it was just a junky old Hamilton that I found in my parts box-I was expecting $20 or $30 for it. I toyed with sticking a new crystal on it but didn't feel like digging through the cabinet for what I thought would be a cheap watch. The case is actually ...

Re: Hamilton on Ebay-What the heck is it?

Thanks Cary...like I said I'm trying to walk a fine line between shameless self promotion and genuinely wanting to learn more about the watch(those of you who will know me know that I do have a legitimate interest in learning this stuff).

Hamilton on Ebay-What the heck is it?

Sorry-don't mean to post a link to a live auction(I should have put it up here before listing if nothing else), but this one has me scratching my head. I listed it a few hours ago with a $4.99 opening bid, and it shot to $76 within an hour. I know zero about Hamilton WWs, so I'm mostly just curious ...

Re: NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament "WatchFanatics2015" Gro

That was one hell of a game! I actually found myself cheering for both teams when they had a big play. The final score really doesn't reflect how good of a game it was-most of Wisconsin's big lead at the end came from KY fouling to get possession in (literally) the last 20 seconds of the game. Unfo...

Re: NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament "WatchFanatics2015" Gro

Wisconsin played a great game tonight. I wish them the best of luck to go out there and kick some Duke butts! One of the better games I've seen in a long time. No disrespect to Duke, but those were the two best teams in college basketball out there tonight. gatorcpa I am not be happy with the outco...
