Re: Jaeger-LeCoultre versus Hamilton - a reverso tale.

This is just one little tease of what Mark bought. There is some other great info in these files.

WRUW 2/18/18 through 2/24/18

Can you believe I don't own a Piping Rock?! Fortunately, I have a friend who let me borrow one of his for the afternoon.

Re: Lady and Tiger watch

There would likely be buyers interested in your watch as is, but condition is important. There is a For Sale section on this website, you would need to post photos and come up with an asking price.

Re: New to watch collecting. Need info on this Elgin?

With the wire lugs, it was probably originally intended to be sold as a ladies watch with a silk ribbon band, although it is in close to size to many of the men's models of that time period. It dates from the mid-to-late 1920s.

Re: Post Your Mystery Hamiltons Here.

Looks like a "Brockton" model from the mid-to-late 1950s. It is 10K solid gold. I've seen a number of these presented by GM. Very nice watch!

Re: Question About 1978 Sun Bowl Elgin

I'm a big fan of sports-related watches. I searched the internet and came up with these photos of a 1978 Sun Bowl watch, which I presume is identical to the one you have. Elgin stopped using the DuraBalance logo in the early 1960s, so that's not what the logo is on the dial. I'm not sure that's even...

Re: When it rains, it pours: 14K Hamiltons

Awesome Hastings! ;) :D Yes, and an unusual dial, too. It came from the collection of a prominent Hamilton aficionado who sought out black numeral dials. Those dials seem to have been less popular with consumers at the time than the gold numeral dials. The Hastings in solid gold has proven notoriou...

Picked up 3 scarce solid gold Hamiltons in the past couple of days: Oval, Glenn Curtiss, and Hastings.

Re: Post Your Mystery Hamiltons Here.

Thanks for the reply. Any thoughts on the likelihood of ID having the correct die for dial refinishing given the rarity of the watch? The only parts of the dial that are printed are the Hamilton name and logo. Many watches from that era use that same small name and logo, so International Dial likel...

Re: Post Your Mystery Hamiltons Here.

Your dial has been refinished. The printing is a little thick and irregular... it lacks the razor sharp printing you would normally see on an original dial.

Your watch is indeed a Lord Lancaster FF. Rare watch, I think I have seen only one other example.
