Does anyone wear a Hamilton 500? I wonder how the ad campaign was with these? There is a certain wow factor there I think. "Ok, so, it is a watch and I won't have to wind it?!?!" A little part of history! That is why I love this site/forum.

You may want to check out Rene Rondeau's book: The Watch of the Future.

The fourth edition came out recently. Great book.
