WRUW 11/21/2021 thru 11/27/2021

Happy Sunday!

For me today it is the 59'-60' Hamilton Electric Converta IV with the prototype (Silver emboss over white) dial. The swooshes going around are silver instead of gold, and there are radium dots on the hour. :)

It is a nice look, something Hamilton never went to production with.

For a so called "common"round Electric that is a stunning watch + bracelet.

Thank you, I am a bracelet person. :lol:

For Monday, I will wear the Converta IV with Grey dial and the two-tone bracelet.

We have learned there are different degrees of grey. The one in the middle image, (not in the watch,) came to me from René.

The dark and light one appear to be less common. The bracelets are all Gemex 19 MM.

I did clean the hands up in the final image.

Today is wrist time for my Ericsson. A beautiful presentation watch from the 30’s.

Those are terrific looking watches. My day is better for seeing them.

Today, I’m wearing a ‘39 Shrine Game Accro. It was fun looking at the bios of the players from that game. No legendary names, just a whole bunch of stars that played a little bit of NFL football, were WWII vets, and (except for a couple that didn’t survive) went on to business success.

That is an interesting "Shrine Game" watch. If they could only talk! :)

For me today it is the 54' K-350 with the black dial.
