Grumpy that is a excellent example!

For Monday I start out with a 1964 Hamilton Everest II, with the original Kreisler bracelet, running a 505 movement.

Wow, another Hamilton Electric with an awesome design.

Is there any info on the design work/team that did the electric line?

Tonight, this early 50s Elgin Seaward. It runs a Swiss source, 17 jewel auto. I have it on a sharkskin strap.
