WTB: Hamilton Fontainebleau Crystal (GS CY1000)

Want to buy a crystal for a Hamilton Fontainebleau (the first Fontainebleau - not the B model) - GS code would be CY1000. The person who's willing to sell it to me, should be also willing to ship it to Germany.

Best regards

Re: A Helzberg box, a Helzberg Time-o-matic and the Winton Story

Hello „Dadistic“, hello „Magpie“, Thank you both for your kind words! It’s fun to solve a puzzle and to write about it, but it’s just GREAT when others enjoy it! News! The puzzle meanwhile is solved!

Re: A ZentRa (Hamilton) Fontainebleau B and a theory how to date early Fontainebleau B variations

Hi "Namespetra", hum, you hit a nerve…. well, I tried (!) to get the movement out of the case - but for this purpose, it's necessary to separate the male winding stem from the female stem. So, I pulled out the winding stem - but the two pieces did not separate. Before something damaged, I gave up an...

Re: ZentRa Savoy by Hamilton

That's a very classy and clean looking watch! My 61008-4 runs a 61 caliber movement. Your research into ZentRa Savoy by Hamilton is revealing an entire collection of models. Keep up the good work looking into this German-American-Swiss horological partnership. Oh, I totally forgot to ad yours (and ...

A Helzberg box, a Helzberg Time-o-matic and the Winton Story

The Helzberg box [/u] Some months ago, my 76 years old father moved to my neighbourhood. I helped him a little bit when has renovating his new home. One task was to get rid off all the belongings of the former owners (some tons of old stuff to be brought to the junk yard). Before we removed all the...
