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.

On the Fourth Sunday of Advent, I wore an Elgin "Touchdown 202" (a.k.a. "Mermaid"):

For Advent IV, I chose a Hamilton Seckron (early version):

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.

That's really cool. I don't collect Benrus really but this one I would grab in a heartbeat!
Good job!
