My watch for church today was an Illinois "Beau Brummell" with a period metal bracelet:

Today's watch for me was an Art Deco model having its first outing -- an Elgin in white gold with black enamel and a touch of bling:

The poor thing had a hairspring problem, but Mr. Toad kindly did the repair last night, and it's been keeping good time today. I'm so glad to get to wear it at last -- it even has its original WG mesh bracelet!

I've always had a soft spot for Hamiltons with "outrigger" lugs: great watch!

For Monday (and it won't be worn outside my home office! ;) )

1958 Everest / 500 movement (gold hands) Flex-Let bracelet.

The 500 movement just came to me with a "SOLID" crisp case. I had the bracelet in waiting, (now I sound like Jim!) :D The gold hands I believe to be somewhat rare? ...and for the purest the original dial and lumen on the hands.

There are a couple caps on the top side of the bracelet that need to be replaced (plating issues) and fortunately I have some.

Otherwise running nicely and a great example!
