For Monday something new for the library:

1960 Hamilton K-460 Automatic, driven by a 667 movement, the crystal size is 28.8 mm, the watch was issued for only one year, I have not seen another one.

I have the original Kreisler bracelet, (it came with it) however it will need some work on the leather. :(

Just a sidebar the stretch portion of the bracelet has 25 links, a regular has 16 and a long has 19. I'm not sure who added the links, the person must have had a HUGE wrist :shock:

This is a great big watch that looks nice on your wrist. The bracelet is an aftermarket Gemex, which looks pretty nice!

Awesome looking watch. Secondly, do you send the bracelet out or do it yourself? Any pointers?

I was indecisive all week in picking watches, so I'm going to make it easy on myself. This week I'll wear those in my collection from the 1942 catalogue.

Nice Elgin Grumpy. Pat, you’ve done it again! It looks NOS. Today I wore the Automatic “A” from the Hamilton Illinois line.
