    Polar express and one comfortable cat. I never thought this was a cute watch, I just somehow ended up liking its awquard looks. Some say it's an albino sub, some a sub par Rolex design. Some hate the cyclops and others want it to grow up in size (this is the 40mm not 42) and while I agree with all of them I just like its imperfect personality. Suits my own. I would like it at 42mm, would like a clear dial, would love a punchier look... But then again, that'll be another watch for another time

    Seeing the Hamilton Seckron reminded me of my Rolex Prince Observatory Duo-Dial "doctor's watch" of which I am the second owner. My late father bought it in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (Canada) circa 1933 when he was watchmaker for a local jeweller. This watch (unfortunately) is Canadian cased. Most of these I see are in karat gold. This one is gold filled, and it shows it. This watch was used as a "loaner" watch when my father ran his own business. It is totally original,and unrestored, and it shows it. Some folks might have had the dial done, but I plan on leaving it as is. I have seen a number of these over decades, but this is the ONLY one I have ever seen that has 18 jewels, and is adjusted to 6-positions. I don't wear it often, but once in a while.

    This is one I happened on at a farm yard sale. I asked the owner what the price was, and she said it was 50 cents. I had a $2.00 coin, so I gave it to her upon which she was digging for my change. I told her it was well worth $ 2.00 to me. The dial was yellowed and water damaged, the chrome case was worn through to the brass. When I got it home, I opened it to find it has a 21-jewel Kurth Freres/Certina movement in it which is as beautifully finished as any top line watch of it's era- circa the 1950s. Highly finished even behind the dial! Self-wind, micrometer regulator, etc. long story short. After parts, dial refinish, case re-chromed, and cleaning, I enjoy wearing it once in a while-like today.
