Hello, I am new to this forum. I am a member of other forums to do with wet shaving and razor collections.
My father recently gave me his Hamilton retirement watch from Armco and I had it restored. Love wearing it. It's the Electronic one not the Electric. Also have his old Timex Electronic and plan to soon have it restored. Recently bought a Mido Multifort just like the one he wore in the late fifties and plan to have that restored as well. So my collection is starting from sentimental roots.
I also have an Automatic Olma with a rather tatty dial, but it runs great. Not sure yet which way my tastes will go. Wait and see.
I have a question though. Today I bought a watch on E-bay in the UK that looks pretty. (Keep in mind I am ignorant but that does not always hurt particularly when you don't spend much. I once bought a razor off ebay france for about $25 and sold in on for about $600.) I don't plan to sell this watch but I would like to know any history anyone know about it.
It is labeled Baume... not B & M. I know they were Baume prior to 1918 but when I google the B word nothing comes up other that B&M. Have I wasted $12 on this watch which supposedly works or did my wife (eventual recipient) get lucky? Hope to hear from someone. Thanks. Cant seem to upload an image. Will try that later.
