Re: Post Your Mystery Hamiltons Here.

Re: Regretting a sale.

Re: Elgin Rochester 1957

Re: WOYB - What is on Your Bench April 2017

Just a 90s Certina DS Sapphire quartz that needs a new calendar wheel which I hope I'll be able to find (someone replaced the wheel for some reason with one from a ladies watch...).

No pic of it yet...
