Re: Jaeger-LeCoultre versus Hamilton - a reverso tale.

Mark,

really exciting new insights!

Interesting also: the initial name idea was “DUO-PLEX” (page 4 of the letter to S&W) – no idea, why they dropped this name, but it was a good decision, for my opinion.

Regards

Re: Anyone Seen One of These Before?

When it turned out, that Susan’s green box is legit I had an idea of the background of it. But I wanted to wait until I received another box to compare with Susan’s green box (the seller paired the box with a Parker B – I was “hot” for the box only. But getting a Parker B in addition to a box isn’t ...

Re: WRUW 12/24/17 thru 12/30/17

Love the ad! Lovely, isn't it? Actually, it's the back of a Christmas booklet (8 pages) - no printing date but I assume it's from 1954 (or maybe 1955?). Here's the front cover: Hamilton_Christmas-Special_1955_01_551x768.jpg Before Susan will get an heart attack: the green boxes are for Hamilton Ill...

Re: Anyone Seen One of These Before?

Hello Susan,

when I saw this box on ebay I thought it was painted. Actually, when my memory serves me right, there are little white spots on the back of the box? Are you sure the box is solid-colored and not painted? If this box really is made of green Bakelite: congratulations!

Regards

Thank you all.
You are right,It writes PLAQUE G 20 and then the hallmark of HAMILTON.
Ah, interesting. It means: 20 microns thick gold electroplated (G = Galvano = electro plating; 20 = 20 microns or µm thick layer of gold).
