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.
Image

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.
Image

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.
Image

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.
Image

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.
Image

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.
Image

Today, I'll start with the Vicky.
Image

This Jessica is kind of weird with just the single diamond on a black dial. I haven't seen one like it in the catalog but it's still kind of cool.
Image

I don't know when this Elva has last seen the light of day.
Image

Might as well finish up with this new Rado.
Image

I kind of got lazy about taking photos of her collection for a while, so I don't have photos of the rest. Then there's the half a dozen or so men's models that she snagged from my collection. I think she has a fairly decent collection.

Dave, I'm enjoying the posts of your wife's collection. She has a wonderful sampling.
I especially like the part about her snagging some of yours....I can relate to that. :mrgreen:

Thanks. She has a wide range of preferences but tends to prefer styles from the 70s and men's 30's era. Thankfully, the one's she has from me are only a strap swap away from me getting them back. Our wrist sizes are too different to share straps. Here's what she currently has from me.

The Greenwich is on her all time favorites list.
Image

The Norman is such a tiny watch, I should let her have all three variations, black dial, white dial and enamel dial but she only has the black version now.
Image

She is actually wearing this 14k white gold jobber case with 12 diamonds today.
Image

She's got my solid white gold early Cushion...
Image

...and my Cushion Form.
Image

She has the Pelham (now on an original bracelet that fits her).
Image

She has her own coral Wilshire and I have an identical example to hers.
Image

I put this Gary on a black leather strap for her.
Image

Very nice collection Dave. I like seeing the Lady's models being worn and appreciated. If your wife doesn't post, maybe she could pose for a few wrist shots. It's refereashing to see a non-hair wrist once in a while. Joel

I had her posting at WTF for a while but she only kept up with it for a couple of weeks. She thinks the internet is only for news, weather and reruns of adult cartoons (Archer, Venture Bros., Simpsons, etc.).

New Frederick Constant.
