Today, my Hamilton K-420 from 1961. I included a picture of one without the original bracelet, and this one with the original case and bracelet. Notice how the watch's hooded lugs go perfectly together with the original bracelet. The bracelet is by J.B.Champion.

Note: Please add this one to the photo album, and to the original bracelet album. Thanks.

Nice Wittnauer. I have this one and one with a blue dial. I love your choice of straps with it.
Great bracelet on that black dialed Hamilton.
Nice watches!

Great idea, semroc, to post that 1944 Bulova for D-Day! Today I'm continuing the World War II theme with one of Elgin's "Service Watches" from 1942, the Model 6607A:

And here's a 1942 ad from the Saturday Evening Post that shows my watch's sibling, Model 6607G, which has a slightly different dial:

Not wanting to copy Magpie and wear another Elgin 6607A, I wore a little Hamilton. It's from a later war, but it continues the military theme:
