Re: New Member

Thanks to all who offered their input. When I walked away from that appraisal, I figured that it was not an accurate number. The guy was pretty young, not to say that is the all encompassing reason. However, there is an older guy with salt and pepper hair, who I've seen often on the show. He was the...

I took this watch to the Antique Roadshow event that was held in Green Bay yesterday. The appraiser valued it at $300-$500. He complimented the watchmaker who worked on it for me. He also said that the hands were not original. Any thoughts?

Hello, I have been haunting this forum for quite a while and decided to jump in. The only Hamilton watch that I own is what I believe is a "Ericsson" from the 30's. A little research about the person it was presented to: It seems that he was a promenant Green Bay Area business man. If I got his iden...
