...today, as most days, I wore my super-doober Hyundai 'got-it-from-my-dealer-for-$4.95 and an extra-battery' watch...set it to the daily time signal and proceed to regulate all my clocks, pws and wristies by it...of course, it isn't my dressed-to-go-to-meeting' watch but it's as reliable as my Santa Fe and as accurate a timepiece as I have in the house...Jim C

For a time today I wore my Girard Perregaux Seahawk. The movement is a 15J Swiss (A Peseaux I believe)and aside from being pretty good looking, keeps excellent time. It has the best dial that I've seen on this type of watch. I believe these watches are very underrated.

Today I wore my Christmas Fossil quartz wristwatch. On the dial is a picture of a Christmas tree, very colorful!

This is usually reserved for playoff time, but today was an exception. (Hockey fans will figure it out.)

Special Favorites...

I wore the combination you see below to the Chapter 37 Meeting in Pittsburgh this past Sunday. The Ball ORRS 25-Jewel Trainmaster wristwatch in the gold case is a special favorite. And I guess the rare Ball-Hamilton 21-Jewel Order of Railway Conductors with multi-color dial along with the chain and fob which came from the James L. Hernick Collection is more than special. Like the previous owner it's a legend.

Thanks for the opportunity to share these with all of you.

Lindell,

Those are quite beautiful. I never thought of the idea of wearing two watches! Eek Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Thanks for sharing. Want to talk about the legend? Confused

...thanks to Lindell (he sent me several xtra straps for the Santa Fe fob I won @auction here) I finally was able to 'strap on' this little 3/0 beauty (has lugs; may be military?)which I got at an auction recently for $5CDN (was even a better bargain since I paid in coin Smile)...a new staff, crystal, bath, powder and perfume and voila!!!...s/n dates it in 1913...I love it!...Jim C

Jim, that is a rather unusual dial, too. What is the movement?

Wore on of my personal favorite restorations to a business lunch today. It's a Longines deco from the 1920's.

to the Fairmont Hotel. Thought you might enjoy a view of the lobby at the Fairmont Hotel in New Orleans, decorations of angel hair and flocked Christmas trees extending a traditon for many years.

Thank you Bill. I wish I could oblige your request, but hesitant to pop open the back for further inspection as the watch is in mint condition, without a scratch, running, and keeping good time. I can tell you on the back of the case is stamped W-14K Gold Filled.

My curiousity is roused as a result of your question. Eek Hmmmm.

...you can do it Stephanie!!!ever so carefully w/the watch coddled in a cloth in the clutch of your hand carefully but surely separate the case at the most likely point w/your most likely instrument and then voila!!!POP!!!but then maybe you should wait for JD to advise..Smile...Jim C

My guess is that this is a remarkably fine example of the Hamilton Watson, from 1936. It is a very lovely watch.

Hamilton Secometer I think. It doesn't exactly match any of those in the Rondeau book, but it does have the hack setting feature. 10K bezel and lugs, back is marked 'base metal'. Unlike many Hamilton's with a sweep second and 18 jewels this one is marked 17-j. I would post a picture of the movement, but it's very snug in the case and I don't want to do any damage trying to get it out and back in.
