A completed item for me!

The 1955 Hamilton K-454 "Sputnik" with the original issue Kreisler bracelet.

The dial has been refinished by International Dial. The silver scribes are printed and not scribed back in the silver as an original. The bracelet was new in a Kreisler case. The width is as issued 19mm, I added 1/2" worth of links to the back to make it 6 1/4" for my wrist.

A nice addition to my collection! They are many around just hard to find in this condition and rarely with a NOS bracelet.

Thank you! I had few regular Kreisler bracelets for this watch, none “long” 6 1/4”. Jim got me going the right way with pulling them apart and re-riveting sections in! I can wear them now. Not an easy process, however there are not many “longs” of anything available.
