Re: Genral pattons possible watch

Hi FlyingHippy, can't contribute anything regarding the watch, but the box is for a Omega Constellation de Luxe or even a Constellation de Grand Luxe (both having an 18K solid gold case - the Grand Luxe even has a solid gold bracelet). Is the insert still present? Most often, the insert is missing i...

Re: A Sea Scape II with grey dial

Ouch! Seems, I’m the fool of week! :( :oops: Well, I thought I’d be the first owner of a Sea Scape II among the fellows here…. But “Just 1 More” not only has one already, but both versions with the original bracelets. Wow. And it’s no “pure” Sea Scape II at all. Oops. But what is it? I don’t think i...

A Sea Scape II with grey dial

Until now, the only available info about the Sea Scape II was the catalog description from the 1962 and 1963 catalog: Hamilton-Catalog_1962_Sea-Scape-II_Detail.jpg Well, just recently I landed one – with the grey dial what ist just awesome! I’m only aware of another Hamilton with a grey dial, what's...

Re: 50s Timex with period-correct friends

That picture is AWESOME!!! I dont have any firearms pre-1983 or so but I am trying for one of the CMP surplus 1911s. I have a WWII Coca-Cola bottle and access to an olive-drab us army typewriter for the potential picture should I happen to get the 1911;) Thanks! As you don’t have a 1911 to be photo...

Re: 50s Timex with period-correct friends

Hello shadeone, a super idea - I really like this! That’s my approach too: composing stills with period matching items. As you seem to be a collector of typewriters: well, I own one vintage typewriter, what’s a “Fortuna” made by the German company Sauer & Sohn in the late 20s/early 30s. Well, in my ...

Re: K-409 with US Military Service Number on the back

Thank you all for the explanations and link! Ah, I see, he was an enlisted member of the Army of the United States, i.e., a draftee and not a member of the US Army. Interesting differentiation. I wasn’t aware of this “sophisticated” system (but I know now, that for example the famous 101st Airborne ...

K-409 with US Military Service Number on the back

Just recently I bought a K-409 (listed in the catalogs 1958 and 1959): K-409_08_1024x767.jpg Well, a nice looking watch – but in this case my interest is focused on the presentation engraving on the back: K-409_03_1024x767.jpg So, L. W. Thomas received this watch on Christmas 1961 (I'm pretty sure, ...

Re: Pierce Chronograph

Matt at thewatchtech.com has been doing Pierce's for me for years. If you ask him nicely he might do yours. He just did this early fixed lug chronograph for me. It's a unusual piece as it doesn't show Pierce on the dial but definitely is a Pierce. If anyone has any idea about the name on the dial l...

Re: Help to ID watch??

I think this watch movement is measured in calories :) Watch.jpg Well, at least, the Polish manufacturer measures the watch in Gramms. It weights 40 Gramms = 1.41 oz: https://angelinachocolate.pl/chocogadgets-chocohobby/zegarek.html Unfortunately, they don't have an English version of their page. P...

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

Randy, Marc and Dan: thank you very much for your kind words! Good to know, that I’m not the last who understood the idea behind the Dash numbers! But actually, I have to thank especially Dave for his database of the dash numbered Hamiltons, as well as all members of this forum who contributed to Da...
