My wife's collection.

#1 Post by Dave » Mon Apr 30, 2012 6:00 am

She doesn't post on any forum so I will display them here for you. I'll add a couple or a few each day. We'll start with this nice little LeCoultre that may be her favorite watch.
Image

She wears this Girard Perregaux quite a bit.
Image

The Edgewood is one that I personally favour (design-wise...not for me to wear. :? )
Image

Much more to come.

This Winona was only listed with this dial for one year, 1937.
Image

Seriously, the girl likes her diamonds and this 1950 Hamilton J4 is one of her favorites.
Image

She's got a few Hamilton Asymetrics, starting with this Cassie, mate to the Cascade....
Image

....as well as this Juno, mate to the Thor.
Image

Time to throw in another non-Hamilton.

Here's a variation on the Thor style. This on is called the Celesta.
Image

I don't know much about this Gruen but the Old Lady wears it a lot.
Image

I find it amazing that they could fit an automatic movement with date into a watch the size of a dime.
Image

Here's one of the ladies' models from the 1964 catalog supplement. This one is the F59-1.

At the risk of creating a whole string of images of boring square watches, I start with the Lora today...
Image

...and continue with the Doris.
Image

This is the style that she really likes, where the gold band and bezel seem to be a single piece.
Image

Here's another example of that style.
Image

One more non-Hamilton to close out the day. This early 60's Bulova was her mother's.

I knew the name of this one at one time but I forgot now I'm too lazy to look it up. Edit - Vignette.
Image

This Sandra reminds me how badly I need to get a men's Turner model.
Image

The 70's are always good for adding a bit of funkiness to a collection.
Image

This little coral Bulova is today's token non-Hamilton.

I'll start today with the Linden Hall.
Image

Another one of those tiny little squares, this time an Elgin.
Image

This Martha is actually out of service right now with an unknown malfunction.
Image

This quartz Hamilton was added because of the aforementioned style where the band is integrated into the bezel.
Image

I will close out the day with another of her favorites. I think this LeCoultre model is called the Caprice.

This white gold Holly is not unappreciated. She wears it often.
Image

I love the dial on this '40 coral Lorna.
Image

We're not done with the diamond models yet. Here is a Desire JJ.
Image

She's not all vintage.

I believe this little one is called Faith. That's not damage on the bezel...just a wierd reflection.
Image

The Jenny seems to be a sort of ubiquitous ladies' Hamilton model.
Image

I haven't properly identified this one yet.
Image

Here's that band/bezel combination again.
Image

I'll end today on a real vintage note with this enamel dialed Muriel. Sorry about the hair in this photo. I'm digging into some of my oldest, most amateur attempts at photography with these ones.
