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.

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.

Thanks stryfox, I appreciate the encouragement you've provided! Because of the way this watch has to be taken apart and reassembled and the added jump hour mechanism with seconds pinion, it was a new challenge for me.

Thanks eclecticfunk! The Dial-O-Rama is a watch that I've wanted for a very long time.

Thank you retroworx!
Especially with the holidays almost here, I want to say that this forum has really helped me grow with vintage collecting and making repairs. I'm grateful to so many who freely share their knowledge and wisdom and especially the members who have directly provide guidance and encouragement.

Thank you, everyone. All my best to all for healthy and happy holidays!
