Re: 2018 NAWCC PacNorthwest Regional

I am going and will have a table with wristwatches for sale, plus maybe a bunch of pocket watch movements from scrapped cases. Be sure to stop by and say hello.

Holy smokes, nice watches! I like how you have the rounded leather band on that Hamilton Oval.
It only took me 25 minutes to get the band on the Oval... and it's a thin, soft pigskin. I've often wondered if they were originally sold with strap that had special curved ends.

Today my most recent acquisition, an Elgin "Ladies' Sport Model 136" in white and green gold, went on its first outing -- to church:
I had my eye on that one, a rare watch. Glad it ended up where it belonged.

April Arrivals... What's New?

March rains bring April sunshine and a bumper crop of Texas Bluebonnets... and a solid gold Oval.

Re: gold lapped defined

It refers to the process of applying a certain "appearance" finish to the gold, not the gold quality itself.

Re: Models not marked Hamilton.

I will sure I will think of some more, but I'll start with these: Whitney and Gladstone. Interestingly, both of these cases were made by Keystone. Sometimes the Custer model is signed, sometimes not. It was also made by Keystone. I've often wondered if the cases were cheaper if Hamilton ordered them...

Re: Hamilton 1935 Calvin, good or indifferent

Yes, that is a Calvin. It is a fairly scarce model and yours is in great shape. These typically show heavy brassing on the curved bezel ridge.
