I really hate base metal watches. Always pitted. Just assumed the Sportsman line to be al BM. Learn something new.

Really nice Hammies and Elgin's so far.

Tonight this big Elgin Surf with the 645 auto, 17 jewels.

Great surf grumpy. Not bragging, I have an Nos one with original leather. While it is awesome the downside is as cool as a watch it is I'm afraid to wear it out of the house. The strap I conditioned but I'm afraid I'll damage it wearing it.
I really should just put a new strap on it and get some use on it.
The design is great. It's large, the dial has a ton of character, the lugs are cool. Really a winning design.

my case is worn, but I did score the current NOS dial for it.

Always torn on the NOS watches. I have a NOS bumper. Just can't bring myself to wear it for more than a few minutes :lol:

Thought the Star-Glo was appropriate for today.

A wonderful Christmas present from Movingman with Coronado's help. Sorry Bryan for the reflection but I couldn't get the numbers to show up in other shots.
