Next to the Hamilton Glendale, the Pinehurst is, in my opinion, the most beautiful wristwatch Hamilton ever produced. It was made in very small quantities...perhaps 250 in yellow gold, and 680 in white gold. This watch sold for more than I had wanted, but less than I was prepared to pay. I will post a photo when I have one available.

Tom,
Thanks for asking. I own "only" 30 wrist watches. All Hamilton. My goal is to collect a diverse sample of the myriad of beautiful, amazing designs this one firm created. My "Top 10 List" would include the following, in no particular order:

1930 Yellow Gold Pinehurst (256 made)
1930 White Gold Pinehurst (668 made)
1930 Green Gold Engraved Oval (109 made)
1930 Two Tone Gold Engraved Oval (several known to exist)
1928 Two Tone Gold Barrel, plain bezel
1923 Two Tone Gold Square, engraved bezel
1930 Yellow Gold Bryd (285 made)
1961 Yellow Gold Flight I
1962 Automatic K-475
1958 18K Yellow Gold Ventura

Some of these are pictured in other areas of the IHC message board. I could provide you with photo's if curious.

My wish list included the following, in no particular order:

Platinum Oval
White Gold Oval
1929 Glendale
1931 Cambridge
1930 Flintridge
1931 Oxford/Oakley
1929 Spur

As each Senator says everytime he speaks on the Senate floor: "I reserve the right to revise and extend my remarks"!

Bill,
Thanks for the reply and your top ten and wish list. I like Hamilton wrists also. I probably have more than 20 but not any of the ones that you have or want. I try to follow the ABCs and buy condition.
