I know most of us have seen these pictures before and most of us may have the poster but here is the link to the photos I took with Rhett for the great 149 Hamilton poster. There are some pretty cool dials in the mix...and a movement or two. Most of the watches are Jon's and Rhetts. There are a couple from our late friend Jerry Barko and maybe one of mine.

Maybe some of the new guys have not seen them so...here they are.

What a great group. The sad part is you can go a year or more and not see that many of comparable watches or dials in the market place. Geno

Beautiful dials and movements. I'll take the two tone movements and don't care what dials are on them..

There is nothing like a dazzling movement, or an ex rare one in nice condition.

It all about the RUSH!

What turns you on (watch wise)?

For me it is the movements too. I like innovations. I like superb finish. I like crisp....and as much as I like dials...I like the mechanical side more.

Dials are a sub collection for me.

A magnificent set of images. Thank you for posting.

Is there a comparable cache on line for the Waltham 1883 poster images?

Thanks, Jon. Most prompt!

I do have both posters, as you may remember, but I love to zoom in on the screen.

The posters are inspirational.
