Re: WRUW 8/25 through 9/2/2018?

Today a ZentRa Savoy aka Hamilton 60015-4 Well, I hired a new assistant for my “studio”, Mr. Handerson. Mr. Handerson will help me to make wrist shots, because my personal skills are limited when it comes to wrist shots. Also, Mr. Handerson is totally hairless and doesn’t move it all even at a long ...

Re: Hamiltons in the Movies

Recently, the 2014 movie “X-Men: Days of Future Past” was shown here on TV. Well, I’m no big fan of such Superhero Comic movies, but I’ve to admit it was entertaining and more intelligent than the average Superhero movie.

Re: Top 10 (or 12) list of favorite Hamilton wristwatches?

I just re-looked at this old thread... and not one Piping Rock in the bunch, amazing. Seems, you missed this one: There are so many, so that the following list of 11 is limited only to those offered before World War II: Meadowbrook Piping Rock Coronado Langley Whitney Putnam Seckron (D89 dial) Bagl...

Re: More Hamilton "Stuff"

I love that era of Hamilton promotions, particularly that typeface: Just screams 1950s style. So when I saw it in 3 dimensions, instead of the usual catalog and print advertising, I went after it hard. ;) I can understand that! And here’s your display in action: Timely-Topics_Sep1952_p03_Hamilton-w...

Re: More Hamilton "Stuff"

Hello Susan, congrat’s for the „stuff“. While „Darth Vader“ is cool, the watch display is just awesome! It really makes me envy. Do you have a photo of your “shrine” with all you Hamilton “devotional objects”? The only Hamilton “stuff” I own worth mentioning is a dealer’s sign. Hamilton-Dealer_01_57...

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 ...

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...
