    This is a formal request to change your avatar. Seeing the pretty girl and then the hairy wrist is so jarring it still bums me out every time I come across one of your posts:(

    For this evening and tomorrow...

    Hamilton W-10, caliber 649 (a modified ETA 2750), hacking, circa 1975. Although at first glance it appears to have a pressure fitted back, it is a front loading one piece case and requires a special crystal compression wrench to open. This reference is the successor to the M.O.D (Army) Smiths W-10, and I believe was the last of the general purpose mechanical watches that were issued.

    Damp and cloudy day in Chicagoland. But my SM300MC and a nice downtown backdrop brightens my day.

    I don't doubt it. But I am pretty much all about surface....

    Could you at least shave the wrists?

    My best 5 watches wouldn't make the first cut in many of the serious watch collections of this forum.

    But, I do have many top notch Gallets. My watchmaker turned me on to Gallet many years ago when it was still an easy to find the brand (and, pretty cheaply).

    Gallet Multichron's were a favorite watch for many Geologists and Wildcatters because of the lower pricepoint compared to other reliable contemporary chronographs.

    Armed with this simple knowledge, I've had good luck over the years finding Multichron's @ Pawnshops and antique dealers in the East Texas Oil Field and the West Texas Permian Basin. For example: I have a very good condition Multichron 45 which was owned by the famous wildcatter, Clem S. Clarke. That's a pretty cool one.

    The attached watch was owned by another famous wildcatter named Dale Crockett. It's in average condition but it's a fairly uncommon Multichron (case) and I have all the provenance (books, boxes and papers). Bought it from a jeweler in Midland.

    I'll wear it today so I don't break the rules of the thread :)
