    No. Everyone thinks waistcoat or jeans pocket are the only ways to wear a pocket watch but especially in the Fifties, the buttonhole was quite trendy. Fred Astaire and FDR were well known for it. You can find these watches from that period but normal pocket watches were also worn.

    It's not a wristwatch, nor a purse watch, I usually wear it in my jeans' pocket, so I definitely think it is a pocket watch

    This one picked itself for a day in the sun, a 36mm Hudson auto from around 1970 and driven by a 21j EB 8127.

    With many registrants of a “Hudson” brand, it’s difficult to say exactly who made this one. Possibly by Marcel and Lucien Jeanbourquin of La Chaux-de-Fonds, seemingly active between 1954 – 1994, or possibly by Itraco but whose movement in my hand-winding Hudson is signed as such.

    Whatever, at 12.3mm high, “Ultra-Thin” is something of a misnomer.

    Regards.

    A Bertmar automatic for today. This is all I can find about the brand: "Research indicates that 'BERTMAR' was the brand name used by the Canadian company “Peoples (Credit) Jewellers”, which started business in Toronto, Ontario Canada early in the 20th century. The brand name was created from the names of founder Frank Gerstein's two sons BERTrand and MARvin. Switzerland was the source for BERTMAR watch movements and cases which were sold in Canada. After Frank Gerstein’s passing, Bertrand and Marvin took over the company and expanded it all across Canada."

    The caseback is marked Edox and the movement (or, the rotor at least) is marked Edox. So, it could be a franken...but it keeps time, looks nice, has a unique greenish-blue dial and a little red dot at the end of the second hand! Oh...and it was cheap.

    Wearing one of my most unusual watch today, ATA Minustop. I own another from Stowa with the usual single disc at the top of the dial and I have seen many other Minustops out there, but this style with the 2 apertures I have never come across apart from mine. Couldn’t find much about ATA as a brand though....Name:  Adjustments.jpg

    Just love those classic, blued hands! They have a deep, lustrous blue. Very old school.
