Re: Exploding Hastings, opinions??

The lines look pretty rough and crude for a factory job. :?: The luminous is also not very neatly applied.

Re: Heritage Auctions... Anyone get any watches?

I wonder whose collection those came from? There were some astonishing rarities, and even more astonishing bargains among them.

Re: Hamilton 14K White Gold Ladies Watch

Hamilton made literally thousands of different styles of diamond ladies' watches over a 60-70 year period. While many were listed in Hamilton catalogs, Hamilton also offered custom cases which could be special-ordered. As an early factory promotion pointed out, "Under this program jewelers may recom...

Re: Electric Desk Clock

Yes, the gold watch was for 15 years. Thereafter employees got jewelry.

That seems out of balance somehow!

Re: Vintage Ladies Hamilton Watch

The dial does appear to be refinished. The letters in the Hamilton name are incomplete and irregular in appearance, which is definitely not up to factory standards. That is an extremely simple dial, however, so re-refinishing it correctly would be a very simple process. The movement could certainly ...

Re: Compulsive Solid Gold Hamilton Buckle Questions

Definitely not original, the shape is incorrect for a 1950s Hamilton buckle. Still, a nice item!

Re: Compulsive Solid Gold Hamilton Buckle Questions

While I hate to say 'never' when it comes to Hamilton, in 35 years of collecting and dealing I've personally never seen an original Hamilton buckle without the Hamilton name. Given how common it is to change straps (and buckles) over many decades, I'm strongly disinclined to believe it left the fact...

Re: Hamilton Everest lug holes?

I'm not sure which came first but many Electrics can be found with holes either drilled through or only on the inside of the lugs. If I were to guess, I'd say the drilled through came first.

It's a Hamilton timepiece that runs on a battery — would it surprise you to know it is not working? :lol:
Just slap a quartz movement in there and be done with it. :lol:
