Left to right:

Hamilton Electric Ventura, rare 18k solid rose gold (export version), black-colored dial, leather strap

Hamilton Electric Ventura, rare 14k solid white gold, black-colored dial, JB Champion bracelet

Hamilton Electric Ventura, 14k solid yellow gold, rare diamond black-colored dial, JB Champion bracelet

Hamilton Electric Ventura, rare 14k solid white gold, silver-colored dial, JB Champion bracelet

Hamilton Electric Ventura, 14k solid yellow gold, black-colored dial, leather strap


A note about the bracelets above:
The JB Champion bracelets are original to the Hamilton Electric Savitar II model. I chose to add them to these watches to match what Elvis Presley did with his Ventura. I also put a two-toned silver/black strap onto the silver-colored dialed example.
