Hamilton Electric "ALTAIR"

#1 Post by Juan Luis » Thu Jan 05, 2017 8:32 pm

After seeing it "in-person" I finally realized why Rene fell in love with it. Photographs do not do this very rare timepiece justice, in my opinion!

Always a pleasure to see you, Jean Luis.

(And that Altair isn't bad either. :D )

Nice one Juan. Yet another gem to add to your already super high end Electric collection.
Congratulations. One day I may too get to touch an Altair. Envious? Me? You bet! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Is that a redial? Most of the ones that I've seen have developed spots on the dial over time.

My Altair dial has the specs Jim refers to.

I am jealous!
