WRUW 2/11 through 2/17/2018?

#1 Post by Magpie » Sun Feb 11, 2018 8:15 am

To sing for the early service (GROAN!) on a very rainy Sunday, an Elgin "Clubman 903":

The "Clubman 903" is a particular favorite of mine because of its unusual case (white, but with yellow lugs), beautiful butler-center dial, and very distinctive numerals.

For Sunday something special:

The 1954 Hamilton K-200 cld with the 14 KT yellow gold brick bracelet. 1954 was a banner year with a huge line-of new time pieces, these Swiss automatics were going to beef up sales. I guess there were always tests in the market; however a $375 for The K-200 cld was a steep price. Inflation would have them fetching over $3,400 for watch today. The gold in the bracelet weighs in at a beefy 34 grams. I found it interesting the price of Gold averaged $35.25 / ounce in 1954.

A true GEM!

I’m wearing a 1973 Hamilton Electronic Centaur (683006-4) today. It has its original JB Champion 13/16” or 20mm wide bracelet with 10k gold filled top caps and a stainless steel back.
