WRUW November 11th through the 17th 2018

#1 Post by GreenBayStamps » Sun Nov 11, 2018 11:10 am

For me today the Funky looking 55' K-504 with the 661 movement and original issue Champion bracelet.

As you probably are aware there are two different dials for this model. Additionally this dial is common to the K-550.

The K-550 is at the bottom...

Nice watches Pat.

Today I’m going with a 1950s or 60s Wittnauer Automatic with a Foster bracelet.

Nice example. This is one model I do not have in my collection.
I had one nice black knight, but i stupidly sold it. I've had a few come in lots, but usually the dial or the case have looked like the Cincinnati Bengals after playing the Saints.

I just finished putting this one together last night.

This is a 1960 Elgin Thin Thin. While I have this square version with linen dials, this is the first time I've found this dial version in good shape. Additionally it came with the original Admiral expansion band. So far, the 27 jewel, 761 is keeping great time.

For Tuesday the 61' Accumatic IV B, with an aftermarket Kreisler bracelet.

I have been chasing links for the bracelet and they just came available. This really means another bracelet was available I could steal links from for my goofy wrists.

I really like the bracelet, almost more than the perfect watch! :lol: Do I have a problem?
