Starting off a frigid morning with my Elgin William Osler model with bracelet, circa early 1930's.

Nice William Osler, few other timepieces look like that in terms of case& dial design.
Today the Blake, one I've grown fond of, thanks again Handy Dan.

Electicfunk, I have a great fondness for the Osler: my first Elgin was one I inherited from my mother.

GREAT LOOKING Elgin. They always seem to go far beyond my budget on eBay.

Also, awesome looking Accutron, Hamilton, Elgin and Hamilton.....

Very excited today :P It's off my work bench and on my wrist in time for the holidays. Here's my finished '57 Dial-O-Rama with NOS crystal. Boy, was it ever a task getting this precious back together. Still deciding on keeping the gen croc band it's on or a bracelet.
