So over the last few days, 3 watches arrived at my house ether via the mail or the local thrift store


The first was a gold plated Timex automatic that i got from the thrift store at half price day for $16. it was made in 1976. It keeps excellent time and I wore it for a full week and it has been running very well.

The other 2 are vintage solid gold Hamilton watches. Both were bought from a seller named Dan Keefe who owns the Hamilton Chronicles Blog. Both were said to have been serviced and since they are featured in blog entries showing the tear down of them, I believe the serviced claim.

The first is a 1950's Hamilton Sinclair in 14kt Solid Gold with 14kt or 18kt gold markers. It was a service award for a GM employee (25 years). it came in its original box

Here is its blog

The second one is a Hamilton Thin-o-matic T300 in 10kt Solid Gold. This is a micro rotor watch It was also an award for a employee

These 2 Hamilton watches will compliment my 1960's 14kt gold Hamilton I got from the thrift store for $30

There is something about this timex that seems to say wear me. I wore it while working on one of my cars, repairing computer equipment and doing all other sorts of things and the watch did not lose a beat. Plus when I took off the old expansion band that the watch came on(it was sized to small) there was no wear on the lugs at all. I replaced it with a more blingy/gaudy expansion band (hey, you ether go big or go home)


Oddly enough despite those solid gold goodies arriving the other day, I am still wearing that timex today.
