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 ...

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!
