  2. Anyone here wear a Hamilton Electric as your everyday, daily wear watch? Shut it down at night to preserve the contacts, of course, but otherwise 12 hours a day, day in and day out, just like it was originally intended when new 50+ years ago? If it had been restored by Jared, Paul, Rene, or Dan, with contacts changed, then regularly cleaned and lubed every couple of years, would it last like a regular manual or automatic wind watch? Just wondering. Would love to hear from the BIG FOUR Master Restorers on this question, or anyone else familiar with Hamilton Electrics...specifically the 505 mov

  7. No, not the modern A&F. Back in the day, Abercrombie & Fitch were premier outdoor/safari clothing outfitters, and had a star studded list of clientele. And they sold watches that Heuer made especially for them. Read on... http://www.christies.com/features/Vintage-Heuer-for-Abercrombie-and-Fitch-watches-8375-1.aspx

  9. Hello all, My wife was given this watch. It is 27mm dia and says swiss made at 6 0clock position. The face seems to say montblanc in italics, but the watch looks 40's and montblanc didn't make watches then did they? On the back case is stamped 2979. Inside are some scratched numbers: jewellers marks? and it says fond acier inoxydable. The mechanism says fifteen jewels. Does anyone know anything about it or how old it is? Thanks in advance for any help. sorry wont upload photo but it is here

  13. Hello , I'm new to this forum and I'm seeking help. I inherited two watches and I would love to know more about them as I'm pretty clueless and Google isn't helping as I don't actually have enough info to begin a real thorough search.

  16. Hi guy:) so ive been on here before for my grandfathers old Rolex`s and today picked up my first real watch. Ive always loved some of the old WWWs and was familiar with the rarity of the Grana. Now i have no idea if i got a great deal or lost a whole bunch. Some of the exact info he provided "This example is a part of a small consignment of Grana contract watches which were designated 'W.W.W specification' with white, A.T.P dials."A comparative example is illustrated in the notable publication British Military Timepieces by Knirim, [page 553]. The serial number for the watch illustrated in Kni

  20. Hello. Only discovered this site yesterday so please excuse any naive questions as I know nothing about watches beyond the post I read yesterday on Vertex watches, for which many thanks. Anyway, I have a Vertex watch which was given to my father in 1968 when he left the company Short Bros & Harland in Belfast. All it says on the front is Vertex, Swiss made. Nothing on the back. i saw in the post that these were often stocked by companies in the past as leaving presents, so I assume there is nothing particularly unusual about it. I hate things that don't work however so took it to a lo
  21. Hi, Below is a picture of a watch that was owned by my dad. I'm trying to find out a little more information on it, i.e. approximate year of manufacture, value (not that I would ever sell it) etc. I'd also be interested to know if the strap looks genuine, as to me it looks a little off for the style of watch. The crystal is very scratched but I'll be taking it to a watchmaker soon to have it replaced, the case cleaned and the watch serviced. easy photo upload Thank in advance.

  23. Afternoon all, I've been saving up, and am looking to buy a Rolex. I've done quite a lot of research, visited quite a few stores and have finally found a piece that looks great. It's an Oysterdate Precision (1974), priced at £3,350. I was just wondering what people's thoughts were on it - good value? good model? Any thoughts much appreciated!

  24. Hi. New to the watch forum but have been a watch enthusiast for as long as I can remember. Looking to discuss all things luxury watch related with like minded watch lovers. I own a Breitling Superocean Steelfish (2014) and have recently purchased 2 of the limited edition Tag Muhammad Ali tribute Carrerra Ring Master. I want a watch with a brown leather strap next to complete the hat trick of Steel, Black and Brown straps. Open to some suggestions from other members on this subject. A more long term dream is to own a Jaeger Le Coultre dress watch.
