It's been talked about for ages but Dan has finally prompted me into it..... Kicking off the Amazing, Around The World, Travelling Hamilton Hayden!
Here's the plan. With some help from Dan in the Maintenance Department, my Hayden has taken the first "public" leg of its around the world journey. It may be coming your way and, if it does turn up, then all you need to do is take a photo of it with you, preferably with some landmark in the background to prove its bona-fides. (May I suggest you resize the pics to 500 pixels wide to keep them standardised for this thread). After that send it to another person from this community - "who" is up to you, but the spirit of the exercise is for the watch to travel far and wide.
We know the ATW Hayden started life in PA in about 1949-50 and presumably there it stayed until it went to Perth Australia in 2010. In February 2012 it was transported by sea to Durban, South Africa via Singapore and from there by road through Zimbabwe into Zambia, arriving there on 28 May. Unfortunately there is no photographic record of these legs of the journey.
On 15 August it travelled by air back to Perth and then by air to PA to be ministered to by Dan. Who knows where it will turn up next and where its journey will end! (For clarity's sake let's assume the watch remains my property until further notice)
