I'm sporting this new addition to the fleet - 1959 T-402 with Budweiser logo.

The seller's description was:

HAMILTON BUDWEISER BEER WATCH
10K ROLLED GOLD

QUARTZ MOVEMENT
SWISS MADE
VERY RARE WATCH

NEVER OPENED
NOT WORKING

The only accurate part of the description was the first four and the last two words... it was definitely opened at some point, as it was missing the second hand, an hour marker, the oscillating weight and the stem!

1918 US Army Issued Elgin Black Star Dial Trench Watch.

This one still has the original factory black oxidized finish, original factory crown, original factory glass crystal.

Quite hard to come by with the black finish still intact!

Nice watches.
Today I'm going with a late 60s early 70s Hamilton Chronograph.

Nice Stuff this week as always!

For me the 68' Dateline A-583 with the original issue Champion bracelet.

The dial actually is a larger presence when you have it on....
