This weekend I got a 1970's Hamilton Atlas Electronic watch from the local pawn shop for a low price. I opened the back of the watch to replace the dead battery and inside was a old Union Carbide 343 mercury battery. I replaced it with a silver oxide 344 battery and the watch fired right up. It has been keeping excellent time (on point with the atomic clock). The watch was made from 1973 to 1977(according to the Hamilton catalogs I found) and has a Hamilton 702 movement in it.
The watch came with its original metal bracelet but the bracelet is too big for me and I have no clue how to size it. The original owner did not know how to do so ether so he just adjusted it to the last micro adjustment hole on the clasp. this has damaged the clasp so it opens to easy. I switched it out for a gold plated mesh band and put the original one away.
Now that I get a good look at the watch with this band, it has to be the most gaudiest watch I own.
So what is the most gaudiest or over the top looking watch in your collection?
