Re: Model 1629 Home Run

I would say your watch is a Senior 680.

The Home Run 1629 you reference is the same watch with a metal band which has a brickwork pattern, different than the band on your watch.

Re: Knock, Knock, Who’s There? Hamilton Bentley!

The Bentley was catalogued from 1937 to 1939, but was made through at least 1940 or 1941, and maybe a little later.

Here is the movement serial number list so you can find a movement in the correct range:

Re: Knock, Knock, Who’s There? Hamilton Bentley!

You also need a 982 movement, and the correct dial. That dial is from a Clark, not a Bentley.

If you search for 982 movements on eBay, you might get lucky and find one with the correct Bentley dial.

Captain Rice

Thanks to excellent customer service from my vintage Hamilton parts supplier out west, I was able to get my new Captain Rice ready to wear less than a week after I rescued it. First one of these I've had in quite some time.

Re: Nookster's Grandson

I spent a little time with Nookster's grandson a couple of weeks ago, and can report that he is super cute, well-behaved (he slept through dinner), and interested in all sorts of shiny watches and things.
