    Thrift Store find: 60's Hamilton

    My second find today, is more in my wheelhouse (my tastes running towards 60/70's). It's a Hamilton auto, 34.5mm, with a 694A movement. It runs, but might be a little slow.

    All told, a rare good day hitting the thrift stores.

    Tell me about it! I hit a couple of thrift stores near my house about once a week, and rarely find anything interesting, let alone two nice finds at one time. Guess who's buying a lottery ticket now...

    Lovely watch. Congrats on your acquisition.

    I had my first bit of success at a thrift shop a few weeks ago when I found this one laying on top of some ugly costume jewelry. It's been to the watchmaker and in the mail back to me.

    It's funny how scoring only occasionally is enough reinforcement to keep me doing it. Love that dial!
