    Hamilton Ventura's..

    Talk to me about Hamilton Venturas!
    My other half & I have come to a deal, when we get engaged, I get a watch (Instead of a ring). I have always wanted a Ventura..
    I know her budget probably won't stretch to a huge amount,(Maybe $350?) but thats fine with me :) I am just wondering whats the best way to go? New, or vintage? Was just wondering what the general thought on these beautiful watches are?

    Please feel free to post pics of yours :)

    Thanks!
    Al

    Came out in 1957 as the first electric watch. Don Draper should be wearing one. Buy it new, it's
    the only way to go. Quartz or auto, it's up to you.

    Original ! (She still gets her ring I presume ? haha)

    At 350 you can get a pre owned or grey marker Hamilton or Tissot

    You can always look at the japonese like Orient, Seiko or Citizen

    or a nice little Strela ! Those are always an alternative

    I'm personally a fan of the newer-type automatic Ventura. That case back window is pretty unique.
    Guys, I really really really do understand that there was a hack and that my password was reset, but I'm about to take a year off from WUS if you can't stop telling me about it every time I log in. With my password. That you reset.

    Which model would you suggest? :)

    I have been watching eBay for a bargain, but eBay makes me a bit wary because i have bought fake stuff on there before, would rather get one off here :)

    :lol: Yeah, she is still getting a ring ;)
    Nahh, it has to be a Hamilton Ventura for me :D
    Its the watch that i have always wanted, if it's good enough for Elvis, its good enough for me :D

    Gotta be Vintage...
