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.
