    A few Hamiltons from the sketch pad of Richerd Arbib showing up on the M B lately. Arbib was involved with General Motors in the mid 1940s when the Cadillac grew fins. Harley Earl was involved as well. So, I decided to upload pictures of two of my Arbib designed Hamiltons. The Ventura was the model that was chosen to introduce the Hamilton Electric in 1957. The Ventura pictured is 14-karat solid gold with a reproduction strap. The other is a gold filled Everest model.

    The Ventura. Runs, but an atrocious time keeper

    The Everest. Notice the"keystone" shape so familiar in Hamilton advertising.
