Re: WRUW 12/24/17 thru 12/30/17

Love the ad! Lovely, isn't it? Actually, it's the back of a Christmas booklet (8 pages) - no printing date but I assume it's from 1954 (or maybe 1955?). Here's the front cover: Hamilton_Christmas-Special_1955_01_551x768.jpg Before Susan will get an heart attack: the green boxes are for Hamilton Ill...

Santa Claus was VERY generous to us: A Roberta for my wife and a Robert for me. Merry Christmas to all!

Hello Susan,

Re: Anyone Seen One of These Before?

Hello Susan,

when I saw this box on ebay I thought it was painted. Actually, when my memory serves me right, there are little white spots on the back of the box? Are you sure the box is solid-colored and not painted? If this box really is made of green Bakelite: congratulations!

Regards

Martin

Ah, interesting. It means: 20 microns thick gold electroplated (G = Galvano = electro plating; 20 = 20 microns or µm thick layer of gold).

Re: A ZentRa (Hamilton) Fontainebleau B and a theory how to date early Fontainebleau B variations

Thank you for this important research contribution. Do you have any information on the movement? Also, do you know what, if anything, is marked on the inside case back?
