I'm going to be selling most of my collection...

#1 Post by vintagehamiltons » Thu Dec 28, 2017 9:50 am

One of the reasons I started collecting wrist watches was to wear them. I worked in an office and it was fun wearing a different watch every day and it took me several months to go through them all. Each watch got wrist time 3-4 times a year. My wife and I have been fortunate to be able to retire early and I can't let these just sit in a drawer; they need to go to new homes. I'm keeping a dozen or so. In time I'll probably just keep the SS watches.

We've relocated to Florida from Wisconsin and we're not quite settled yet. Soon I'll be getting them listed here to give forum members preference. If they don't sell here, then to ebay they'll go. Plan on a COA unless I state that it was done recently. Here's a link to my Photobucket wristshot album for your perusal and below I've listed the ones I'll be keeping for now. Some fantastic watches will be available.

Some of the watches in that album have sold in the past. I kept the photos to preserve them in the various threads they are in, as well as the photo thread. Any I don't have anymore I'll note in the title.

Tom, I"d be interested in hearing the pricing on some of your Electrics. For some reason, I can't seem to send you a private message. Could you contact me? Thanks. Mike

That’s awesome. Looks like some awesome Hamiltons are going to find some good homes.
Best of luck!

Tom - where in Florida are you? (PM if you prefer) My wife and I get down there at least once a year and travel all over, usually for Spring Training. If you want to have dinner, pick a BYOB and we'll bring a couple bottles of nice wine.

Dennis! Long time, bud. We live in central Florida - The Villages to be precise. I'd love to meet up some time.
