Cheeky grey nato
1975 Rolex Date 1530.
I am in love with this watch since I bought it. Perfect size, super comfortable to wear, pretty rare in Rolex production terms and look at that beautiful and soft patina. What´s not to like about it?
This one´s a keeper for sure!
Err, excuse my enthusiasm...

Giving my "uncommon" 2887 Constellation some sunlight on an "uncommon" day in April here on the East Coast of the US. It's 90°F here today!
Good for knocking people in the head.
Ebay has my number. No privacy, they are nailing it with their targeted adds.

Hamilton Electric, Everest model, caliber 500. Circa 1960. About 60 years old. Still runs. The Hamilton Electric is the “Edsel” of the watch world. Designed by Richard Arbib who worked with Harley Earl to put fins on the 1948 Cadillac. The Hamilton Electric was the first battery powered watch made available to the public. That was in 1957. Hamilton rushed the introduction because they saw that Bulova, Elgin, and the French LIP company were working on battery powered watches. Hamilton wanted to be first! They wanted styles that would visually put the Hamilton Electric into a class of their own. Design-wise. Too bad they were notoriously poor performers, many of them replaced to customers by Hamilton Thin-O-Matic watches. Better, but still, the damage was done. Both in Hamilton’s reputation, but also on their balance sheet.
