For today it will be an Olympic Logo 'Q' from 1977. This comes from the first era of all stainless steel models Timex introduces in the late 1970's. The odd thing is the movements were not the best quality compared to the case. So finding one in working condition is not easy.

Great watches today - the Pepsi colored Rolex GMT is one of my favorite aside from the copper / brown / rootbeer dialed version

Nice looking Timexes (spelling??) Morris / Mark - maybe we need a thread for the brand on it's own? ;)

Anyways, export Day / Date Hamilton for Thursday
case #36596
11
either that or it's post 1977

Yes, they are both from the same era and are in stainless steel cases.

What is the plural of Timex?

The pronunciation of the letter 'x' ends in an 's' sound, therefore you add '-es' to the word. For example: Box, boxes.

So 'Timexes' it is.

You could go with Timexeses, just to be safe.

Something new for me! Following Dan's blog I learned there was only two square automatics the K-405 and this 1959 Thin-o-matic T-401. Perfect Dial!
This is case is so much larger than the K-405, the lugs are actually a full 3/4". The Crystal is coming, the boys at Pabst, thought their body should have a watch!
Love it!

Pat, your post earlier today made me dig out the K-405.
Your T-401 is really sharp. But as an award watch; I wonder if Harold got stuck man! LOL JUST KIDDING, great piece.

I just missed on of those over on eBay. I'm not a Hamilton guy but squares get me every time. Something about them I just love.

Thanks Mark, just had a thought? :shock: Maybe Harold was replaced by Laverne and Shirley in the bottle capping division of Pabst! :lol:

Today an Elgin sportsman.
Now many of you know many of the watches from the sportsman line are base metal and not up to par quality wise with some of elgins other offerings.
This one happens to have a fully stainless case and a beautiful black dial. fitted to a duchess stainless band and it's one of my go to watches. It's got style, it's pretty big ,and I'm not going to hurt it.
Don't overlook the sportsman line. There are some winners out there.

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.
