I was feeling different this morning, so I put on a Hamilton "Seckron" with black dial:

(I've had a white dial "Seckron", in the earlier case, for some years. Then I turned up an empty box for a black dial model, and Magpie was kind enough to find a watch to go in it.)

Beautiful, Magpie! I love the Seckrons. Knowing my luck, if I wear one, or my Elgin William Osler, someone would stop me and ask me to help deliver a baby!
Today, I wore a Hamilton Dateline A-688 Fontainebleau from 1971.

That Fontainebleau is pretty special looking, itself!

Thanks! I had to take a picture at an angle to eliminate glare.

If only they had made a men's Orné series. Great looking B&N bracelet too.
Real men wear small watches.

Great Gruen Cartouche Bettie. You should take a pic of all your Cartouches lined up- what a collection- for a few days now I’ve worn the Hamilton Blake.
