    Well I posted to soon... I returned to my desk from my little photoshoot in the cafe to find a package on my desk, from a bit far south of the border... So back to the cafe it is! :D

    You have, and share a righteous selection of photos of, a spectacular collection. You earned the title "watchdaddy1" in high style.

    Thanks, man! :thumbsup:

    For the record...I don't believe my father-in-law's Hamilton automatic is considered vintage...I purchased it new for him from a Hamilton AD in 1996...but 2 out of 3 ain't bad. :thumbsup:

    My father was in the Navy, so I saw these bands often as a kid. They might be part of the reason why, like a crow to anything shiny, I am obsessed with watches.

    Wonderful! If you are not already aware, VWF has posted Hamilton dealers catalogs for reference, if you'd like to learn more about these heirloom pieces. http://vintagewatchforums.com/viewforum.php?f=21&sid=418976f844f04b5a26dd370445bbd135

    Very cool beans @TexOmega...I remember seeing those bands while on deployment and on liberty in the PI [Cubi Point/Subic Bay] in the late '80's and early '90's...and now I'm kicking myself for not getting one! Regardless, I had a personalized belt buckle [see pics below] made in Olongapo while I was there...now if I just had the technology to convert it to a watch band.

    This arrived today. Need to adjust the bracelet a bit and think about what kind of leather strap I'd like.
