Re: Duncan 14K

In all the years I bought, sold, and restored Hamilton watches I never even saw one in the flesh. Definitely a rarity!

Re: Ever wonder what Lady Hamilton looked like?

That's certainly interesting. I'd never heard of Hamilton actually using a person to represent the product line. Here's a different Hamilton beauty, working on the production line. I suspect there was a reason that the photographer chose her to represent the job, and not Dick Slaugh (head watchmaker...

Re: A great watch from the prototype dept.

That is an absolutely breathtaking find. Wow!! I wish I'd had pictures of that when I wrote an article about the case and dial photo-etching project for The Bulletin several years back. I'm pretty sure I illustrated the sign showing that very dial.

Re: Hamilton (and Rene!) in New York Times

Yikes -- that's news to me! I don't even remember the interview, though that's because I answer so many questions I can't keep them all straight.

Thanks for the post!

Re: what is Hamilton's 11/16 lug width? (not as easy as you think)

Over the years I've handled literally thousands of Hamiltons with 11/16" lugs (the vast majority of Electrics were that size). I've used 17mm, 17.5mm, and 18mm straps for these. Invariably the 17 was ever so slightly loose; the 17.5 very nearly spot-on; and the 18mm a bit of a squeeze to fit in. Tha...

Re: please suggest Hamilton for my 18mm solid gold Bonklip

Many of the cld series of watches had special gaskets unlike anything made today. The method of gasketing was also different from traditional 'waterproof' watches. But in any event, these would never have passed a pressure test even when new. They were not made or marketed to be waterproof, just "se...
