    Took a hike today wearing a reliable waterproof micro, as there was thunder rumbling, and rain a-threatening.

    Little did I know what real threat would be lurking on my brief journey...

    This fanged fauna deserved to be left alone...

    ... BUT...

    ... not until after a few more photos:

    A less forboding critter joined up for the final leg, cooperatively posing for a few pics before returning to the forest.

    Hamilton Piping Rock (ca.1988 reissue) with Swiss FHF-138.001 movement. This watch was a tribute to the 31 pieces specially produced and given to the 1928 Wold Champion New York Yankees - aka "Murders Row".

    With Hamilton now being a Swatch product, I am interested that this watch uses an FHF movement. This would indicate to me that the "tribute" Piping Rock was introduced before Swatch bought Hamilton, or Swatch now owns FHF as well. Nice watch anyway.

    Absolutely Correct. These were reissued before the Swatch acquisition. From another post, "In 1987, Hamilton only had the Khaki, repurposed military, watch available. Hamilton needed a superhero. Hans Scholl, the product development V.P. from Omega came to the rescue. He recruited several senior employees to join his staff. They selected designs from the Hamilton vault, catalogs, and collections. They chose the Piping Rock, Cabot, Emerson, and Wilshire"

    Here is a brief write-up on the variations I did on the Hamilton Forum:
