    Here's my 1957 in 14K...I left the patina on the dial intact:

    I'd would love to have an 18K electric Ventura, but I think that they made fewer than 100.

    What kind of band is that? Very interesting from what I can see...


    ^^Actually, I adjusted my monitor and could see it is a black skin of some sort. I initially thought that it was some sort of navy, woven fabric.

    Still a good look.[​IMG]


    Elephant hide?

    Yes, it is an elephant hide.

    The grey rusticity contrasts well with the all-gold nature of the watch.

    I'm not sure the elephant would agree. [​IMG]

    Look at you guys bringin' the 'Murican watches. Very nice. I have one vintage Hamilton in 14k. It isn't running right now, I need to get it to my watchmaker for repair.

    I really like this Broad Arrow. It's difficult to get the true color of the blue hands in a photo.
