My first Hammie has arrived :001_tt1: the Aviation QNE auto.... a joy to watch (pun intended) an early X-mas present delivery from "THE" TV Network overnight, in one day...fit/finish are awesome, I'm a bit confused by the rotor statement of 27 jewels under the Hammilton name...27 :huh: I know is an ETA but , I was under the impression that I will get a 2824-2:confused1: muy be someone can chime in some needed advice?
Now if I can just dream we may get a Hammie forum in the WTF:wink:...me thinking... could make lots of folks very happy:001_rolleyes:
Pic is lousy, is late... the piece still have all the plastic protectors on and artificial light+my horrible pictorial skills , well you know..is not going to be a Gerard take :001_smile:

Congrats, eddie. Very nice watch. Love the packaging.
As for the 27 jewels, there may be an extra couple of rubies because Hamilton modified the movement.

Due to a sub seconds dial at 6 0'clock I would have to agree with Mr.B :scared:

I was thinking the same thing, the seconds mod......is most likely the reason............................. thanks Great One :)

A very nice time piece. . . I am jealous.:drool:

I wonder if there are enough Hamilton owners in the forum to warrant a separate Hammie WTF?

That's a very good question Rusty.....with the increasing popularity of Hammies.. wonder how is the number/ownership ratio here?????...would be interesting to see:)

I'll be first. I own two. A Hamilton Ventura Chronograph and a Men In Black Digital.



I was going to get an Aviator style from OTV's website, but I bought a Chase-Durer WarHawk instead.

Nice watch.

I wore my Hammie out tonight, in fact, I'm wearing it now, but it's time to put the 8926 on it's winder (my wrist).

I fiddled with the picture a bit.

I think the movement in that watch is actually an ETA 2895-2.

I don't think Hamilton would modify a center second hand 2824 into a small seconds 2895.

Not unlike the Breitling SO Heritage 38:

That is a beautiful watch. I owned one a while ago. Unfortunately, I don't have the wrists to pull that watch off and it became a drawer queen. Enjoy.

3 Hammies and counting. 2 Jazzmaster Viewmatics and one vintage Masonic dialed. I would agree we need a Hammie forum, perhaps split modern/vinatge?

I have but one.

However, I grow fonder of it each time I wear it.

I'm not sure what it is exactly.

It's thin. It's light. It has a clean, classic, understated look.

Hamilton deserves its own forum, I think.

Maybe one of Administrators would like to pick the banner and take a poll ...see is the following is there to justfied a Furum :thumbup1: my educated guesstimation is that it is a crowd out there to make it worth it :wink:
