Re: Engraving Photos

Here’s an unusual engraving on the back of a 1937 Sutton:

Seems, there was originally the monogram of the first owner which has been obliterated by the flowers.

Re: ZentRa Savoy by Hamilton

Wow! So nice to discover that my Hamilton 61002-4 has a ZentRa Savoy cousin. That box set ZentRa Savoy is a great find - I’ve not come across one. It uses a passport style document like its European Hamilton counterparts from that era. I was in Warsaw, Poland, earlier this week and saw for sale in ...

Re: ZentRa Savoy by Hamilton

Update: Recently I bought another ZentRa Savoy – this time, with box and guarantee passport. ZentRa-Savoy_60024-4_Still_01_1600x1200.jpg The new ZentRa has a ZentRa number 7010 and a Hamilton number 60024-4. The watch looks like this: ZentRa-Savoy_60024-4_01_1024x768.jpg ZentRa-Savoy_60024-4_04_1024...

Re: Automatic K-504 with an early Case Number

Sorry about that ;) I posted it upside down! You're welcome! Something like this just happens. I guess, you'll know the "710 cap" joke? 710.jpg :lol: :mrgreen: Sorry! Seriously: does anybody has one of the other candidates (K-507, K-550 and K-575) and could have a look on the internal numbers (if a...

Re: Automatic K-504 with an early Case Number

Hello GreenBayStamps,

thank you very much for showing your K-502 case backs! It’s a perfect match when you’ll turn them for 180°:

;)

Then, the number will change to

9960

What are, in fact, the first four digits of the catalog numbers for the K-502!

Automatic K-504 with an early Case Number

Just recently I bought another K-504. I had already one, but the other is more a parts watch. Anyway, when I compared the two I noticed something interesting: K-504_08_1024x768.jpg Both Case backs do have the very same number: 99644 Obviously, this is no serial number. But what is it? Just to show t...
