For Sunday I wore the 56' Transcontinental A, 661 movement with the original issue Kreisler bracelet, extended to be 6 1/8".

This has been a tough one to complete... and is still a work in progress. The marker on the end of the second hand still needs repainting.

Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer Automatic H777150

I love this classic look; homage to Hamilton's WWII ships' chronometers.

An interesting new acquisition today, a late '20s, maybe early '30s Gübelin. It has an unusual sterling case with 14k gold accents, not a combination I recall seeing often. And it's tough to photograph because the contours on the corners reflects like crazy creating the appearance of brassing, but it's not. And I can wear it without feeling like I'm cheating on Gruen, because it is indeed powered by a cal. 157 Quadron movement.

For Thursday the 75' Auto Date Duncan, with the original issue bracelet, with no identification on it.

837029-14 (Gold Plated) for being plated it is in excellent condition.

Happy St. Nick Day!
