Decided to start wearing the watch I inherited from my grandfather 31 years ago.
A circa 1960s-ish(?) Hamilton with original band (Speidel).
So sad to see that happen to a vintage GMT. Hopefully, a new crown/tube, bezel & insert, maybe acrylic crystal, and he will be back in business. He probably should have upgraded to a solid link bracelet anyway... or put it on a strap.
Booooo , no appreciation for vintage pieces.
That vintage Hamilton has seen some wrist action in its life. Good to see it still appreciated.
As for the GMT in the garbage disposal, it was probably one of those accidents that leaves you wondering how it happened in the first place. Watch is on the counter 10ft away, somehow it gets hit and takes and awkward slide pass the other things on the counter to land in the disposal. Sucks none the less.
These two have no problems coexisting in my small family of watches, or for that matter, bathing together:
Although "the crowns" acknowledge that this sister of theirs is much closer to my heart than others:
