August 2017 Incoming

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.

I know I haven't been on the site much lately but I have managed to add this limited edition Intra-matin 68 Chrono to my collection. Actually, I've never had it on my wrist. My wife snagged it the very first day and I think she plans to keep it.

Almost got me. When you see Masterpiece on the dial like that, it means it came from the Presentation and Awards Division. I haven't been adding any these to the photo threads...yet. I don't really have any information to put them in a proper context yet.

Hey, Dave, there had been talk before it was released that the Intra-matic may be too big. (Is it 42mm? I can't remember.)

Any chance we can get a shot of it on your wife's wrist for reference?
