I can't help but notice a predilection for Hamilton watches with this group and I'm feeling inadequate having never acquired one. Although I'm now looking for an Illinois Futura, I'm not averse to getting my hands on a Hamilton. What's a good model to start with? I'm partial to white gold or stainless steel.

Thanks,
Dana

Dana,
I think your observation about the predilection for Hamilton wristwatches is very valid. Although I personally own a number of Hamiltons,I also have a lot more assorted brands of wristwatches both vintage and modern. Let's face it, the vast majority of quality wristwatches in the last 60 + years have come from Switzerland or Germany.

So please feel free to share with us anything you have. Big Grin

Dana,

I have just a few Hamilton wristwatches.

My wristwatch collection primarily consists of unique styles of Bulovas. I like wristwatches that may have unusual lugs, fancy crystals, or different dials. I also have a few Gruen wristwatches.

And ... I do collect Disney character watches and clocks. Smile

As Dave indicated, please do share your wristwatches with us!

Here's a really nice Benrus with a brown Stingray strap.
