    ***Friday April 12th, 2019 - WRUW?***

    Been back at work this week after my trip to Vietnam. Feels like I didn't have a holiday. I hate that feeling.

    Anyway, I started the week wearing the WatchCo-built Seamaster 300;

    And switched over to the Oris Artelier Hand-Wound mid-week;

    I've had a Hamilton Khaki Officer's Mechanical for the last seven years. I bought it during the height of the BIG WATCH craze. It measures 44mm in diameter and absolutely murders my 6.5 inch wrist, but I wanted a watch that looked like a wartime spy's piece of kit. And this oversized watch seemed to fit the bill.

    It houses the beautiful Unitas 6498 hand-wound caliber and I wore it sparingly over the years.

    Over the last year or so, I kept thinking I should sell this one and replace it with something that provides a better fit. So, I finally got around to getting a new Hamilton Khaki, in a more forgiving 40mm diameter. It arrived yesterday;

    And I think it's a nicer fit. This one houses the ETA H10 calibre which offers a staggering 80 hour power reserve. I'm gonna test it out by taking it off later and putting it aside until Monday morning.

    I not overly crazy about the strap, but it does give the watch a nice "Going after Rommel in North Africa, 1941" kind of vibe. Besides, I can always change it out for a Haveston NATO or padded black leather strap.

    Yep, all in all, I'm happy with it, and if the power reserve is all that it promises, I'll be very happy with it.

    Have a good weekend, all!

    And watch y'all wearing on yer wrists, by the way?

    Nice new Hamilton - like it very much.

    I can't contribute an Omega (only got a Speedmaster) this week again, 'cause my poor man's 369 keeps where it is.

    Stop for the traffic light, go for the weekend! Have a nice one.

    Ahh, the famous desk picture. I've been killer busy since my son joined the family, so I've missed a lot of Friday threads. I generally wear a watch for at least 2 weeks in a row, so my contributions would be pretty boring. But now enough time has passed (and I made sure to collect some pics) that I can have a reasonable participation.

    First, let's get the desk picture out of the way.

    Really like the new Hamilton, Tino. Hope the resereve lasts as long as advertised.

    Wore my Railmaster on a slightly older style NOS Khaki strap this week. The reddish hue suits it well, IMHO, & the watch appears slightly more petite than when on the bracelet.

    Planning to keep it on the leather for as long as the cooler weather holds out
    - no problem for the next few days as HK has become enveloped in some grey, wet & windy elements since yesterday, & not expected to change until the latter part of next week.

    Feels almost like a summer's day back home in Blighty.

    Changed back to my 42mm PO today, ready for the weekend...

    Purchased having never seen it in real life, just knew I’d love it. Found the perfect strap now as well. Couldn’t be happier.

    Lots of great pics chaps, and congrats Tino, the Hamilton looks great. I actually quite like the strap but I know what you mean.
    I can only bore you with my only one, switched from leather to Nato a few days ago.
    Have a great weekend, all
