Re: Getting old and liking gold....

Great looking watch, a Hamilton (for which I admit to having a liking for anyway, owning several myself), and a 7750 to boot. definitely worth keeping over any of the current crop, in my opinion. Pleased for you, sir.

Re: The Pocket Watch Gallery

I think your man is the same fella that did the 4992B in the article I referred to. "HandyDan" is his moniker. Very impressive skill set for Hamiltons.

Good luck with the hunt!

Constellation Question

I acquired this Constellation Pie-Pan watch earlier this year, and have been very pleased with it except for one little thing. When looking at the minute hand, it extends past the point where the dial makes its downward break, thus creating the shape which has given this style its "Pie-Pan" moniker....

Re: The Pocket Watch Gallery

watchaholic: check out the Pocketwatch Data Base for Hamilton watches. Type in your movements serial number, and it will display a lot of useful information about your watch.

Re: The Pocket Watch Gallery

With reference to your Hamilton 4992b and the twelve hour dial...there is a site called ""Vintage Hamilton Watch Restoration" where the watchmaker has done a service on one that looks like yours. He disassembled it, cleaned it, and reassembled it, complete with pictures and detailed discussion of wh...

Re: What would you tell yourself?

I think now that I would buy fewer watches, of better quality. I miss my Rolex GMT Master terribly, but lack funds to get another. So for me, I would get the Speedmaster much earlier than I did, along with a G-Shock for work, and a Marathon Navigator for low-light and dark. Exempting my two heirloom...

Re: A 500 year history of how to set your watch

I don't know about selling phone in 3 minute blocks, but in the '30's, '40's, and '50's, aviators used the longer lines at the three minute intervals to time procedure turns during approaches to airfields at night and in inclement weather. When I was a rookie avionics tech, I would set my watch by t...

Re: C11 seconds hand returning to 59 second point?

Haven't had a problem with my CW's doing this, but did have to reset the hands on a couple of others. Check the C11 manual, there should be a process for setting the hands after a battery change. Sans manual, one can get the reset process by looking up the instructions for that particular movement n...

Re: C65 Trident Diver SH21 Limited Edition review

Just finished reading your review, it was very good. Learned/relearned things unknown and forgotten. The watch looks very good, speaking to my liking for blue-dialed watches with simple numbering. Thank you.

Re: nope, nope, nope, nope, oooooh!

Hi, Lindsey, good to hear from you again! My experience is mainly to start with a watch seen wherever or whenever, and follow where the search leads me. One link after another, mostly driven by something seen on the forum, or in an advertisement, or on the net. I usually have an idea of what I like,...

Nice catch on the BBMF C4, Guy. A great looking watch.
