I have that Elgin, one of my favorites.

The spider web watch is just the epitome of 50s coolness!

I'm surprised you didn't grab the lot. I figured it and the triangles would be calling to you. :lol:

I picked up a small lot last week (Timex 200 ft diver, Breitling Stopwatch, Waltham Auto with box, Bradley Mickey Mouse)

Timex needed a crown stem and it has an original Topic strap which is worth at least what I paid for the entire lot.
Waltham had loose dial screw that fell into the rotor, I added the NOW Waltham strap you see in the after pic.
Stop watch works and just needs a crystal and the Mickey works and needs a crown.

So far these should be a nice flip lot.

Let's jump in!

1966 Hamilton Dateline S-675 / 674 movement (non-automatic) I have included a photo of the case marking for the manufacturer and I do not recognize it. On Dan's blog his case has a "D" serial number and this one does not?

New for the photo library and it is a Champion bracelet

Nice one, Pat. That's the case mark of Wallace Silversmiths.

Mo, I've been noticing some of those Timex divers: really cool looking.

Interesting: I've never seen a Wallace Silversmiths case mark before, although I have a Hamilton award Spectra to a Hamilton WS employee.
