The Hamilton Ventura Chronograph is my most recent addition to my collection. It has a certain charm and unique classiness. It also plays a large part in watch making history as the first "electric" powered mechanical movement watch. Elvis made it popular personally liking its style and wearing it in the movie Blue Hawaii in its entirety. Today, it is more known as the issue watch of MIB (Men In Black) Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones were the first. Anyone else own a Ventura? I would like to hear your comments about it.

An original Ventura? A couple of members here have them. Hopefully they'll stop by with a photo or two
You mean like this? Complete with the original 14K strap. Unfortunately it does not want to run right now, needs cleaning. BTW UP-R your Ventura Chronograph is beautiful. I'd consider one if I I didn't have way to many watches already.
