Acquired this NOS 1990s Hamilton King Chrono III (automatic Valjoux 7750) with box, papers and strap. (This pic does not show the original strap — I removed the original one to preserve it and was too lazy to swap it back on for these photos, LOL.)

Very impressive
That Chronograph is stunning.
I'm also a sucker for boxes

Susan, nice stuff.

For me I assembled this and am wearing it today. It can be new to the bracelet section and may replace the missing photo in the library.

Nice additions. This one just came in. A 10K White sold gold Parker. I've never seen one in White Gold. One for the photo thread.
