    Latest flea market finds, collecting info

    Here is my latest flea market finds (3 weeks worth).
    Collecting info on all 3.

    Omega is a bumper.
    Hamilton seems to be automatic.
    And chrono looks like landeron based movement.

    Any thoughts?

    Hi,

    Do not look to be transparent :D So movement and caseback photos would be a great help :)

    Are you telling me that you can't see thru the case? What kind of collector are you? :)
    I'll try to get additional pics shortly.

    I use sonar like a dolphin, they all seem to be fine, an impressive haul. I'm amazed stuff like this can still be found at flea markets/ junk shops etc, all I ever seem to find are old Timex (other inexpensive brands are available)

    Well, well...

    Omega has a long list of bumper automatics, would be interesting to see which one it is.

    The chronograph piece looks lovely. How much did you pay for it?

    Thanks,
    -Michael

    $150 for chrono.
    $100 for Hamilton.
    $180 for omega.
    Not so cheap but I think it was fair enough.

    Interesting design Hamilton. Weird minimalist television design.

    Three nice watches. The cases are in good shape. I think I would like that patina on the Omega.
    "A watch is ruined, not by time, but by bad handling. To run well it should be wound regularly, cleaned yearly, and, if injured, taken to a competent, practical man. A ​Waltham watch properly cared for will last a lifetime." -American Waltham Watch Co. Catalog (c) 1900
    “When your watch gets out of order you have a choice of two things to do: throw it in the fire or take it to the watch-tinker. The former is the quickest.” -Mark Twain
