WRUW June 19, 2017 thru June 24, 2017

Start Monday off with a 1961 Accumatic IX B with an aftermarket Kreisler bracelet.

I like the golden dial.... and chasing the correct crown! :)

Nice examples. Today I'm going with the Stainless Regulus II. JB Champion bracelet. Not original, but close. Interesting that the case was made in Switzerland. I don't know of any other Hamilton Electric Watch cases that were made in Switzerland?? Anyone?

Snap, Sutton for me too, but AGN version. Fabulous dial on yours Tom. The new crystal arrived for mine a few days ago, and I finally had the chance to fit it and wear this lovely watch for the first time since I restored it.

It's a really lovely size on the wrist isn't it, and I just love the way those tubular lugs curve around the wrist. I need to choose a better fitting strap from my box for it though. Unfortunately I have no 9/16" straps, and the 14mm look a bit narrow to me, so I'll have to take a sliver off a 16mm strap I think.
