Re: WRUW 1/26–2/1/2014?

Fresh coating os snow fell in the early morning, so I'm going with my 1966 '600 ft' diver by Timex. Among the many firsts of this watch are, first true dive produced by Timex and the first all stainless steel case. Also features a Tropics strap. http://i802.photobucket.com/albums/yy303/jerseymo58/Fr...

Re: Hamilton Automatic - Rotor problem

I turned the half head screw and that allowed to two small bearing gears to lift off. So now I know that is there to hold them in place.
Took another look under 20x mag and the center seems to be one solid part.

That brings focus back to the center screw...

Help To ID Longines Year and Model Name

Picked up this Longines today. From a qucik net serach I found it similar to many of the Presidents series. But no direct match. I'd guess early 1950's. Anyone have additional info? Since taking these pics, I've cleaned up the case and band. http://i802.photobucket.com/albums/yy303/jerseymo58/DSC074...

Re: Homage to Hamilton or Elgin ??

I think of these as The Poor Man's Piping Rock 8-) I have two varieties of these hinge-lugged cases, one with a similar enamel bezel and one without the bezel but an engraved version of the case: http://i1282.photobucket.com/albums/a540/retroworx/Watches/A90441CD-71B5-4CA7-BF4E-C1A66CD4E56B.jpg htt...
