GreenBayStamps: That band really compliments a nice watch.

Today, a Hamilton A-651 from 1961 with original Kreisler bracelet. I hope the picture shows the dial.

I don't like to use the word rare but it may be fitting for this Elgin masterpiece.
Lord Elgin Ivanhoe in solid 14kt yellow gold. Case weighs in at 14.5 grams.
As far a style goes this one even gives the chairman a run for coolness points.
I'm happy to own it!

Great Lord Elgin Ivanhoe. It must not have been worn much. With that case design it would have shown some
dings, etc. if it had!

It is surprising not dinged. The spots on it are water from the snow blowing around.
I can't stop looking at it.
