    Hammy Double Whammy!! (Lots of Pics)

    Having no Hamiltons in my collection, I have been keeping my eye out for a good deal on one of these venerable watches.

    Well, when it rains, it pours! (I'm supposed to be in the NBZ until summer fer chrissakes!)

    I picked up this Hamilton X-wind Chronograph on eBay for a really nice price (REALLY nice!). Love how this looks and feels on the wrist.





    Nice view of the Hamilton logo on the rotor and the cross wind calculator (that I probably won't need):



    Pushers for the chronograph:



    Crowns at 2 & 4 o'clock for the bezel slide rules:




    Super comfy on the wrist:



    Decent good lume on the hands:





    THEN Touch of Modern showcased some Hamiltons in March at the same time they had their 20% off sale, so I picked up this Hamilton Khaki X-patrol for less than 6 C-notes (plus shipping)!!




    Love this case back:





    Incredible detail on that dial:








    The lume is decent, but surprisingly persistent:




    Overall, I am very, very happy with my first hammy's! Thanks very much for looking.

    Smart man for grabbing stuff while the price is right. I remember that TOMO sale, with the extra 20% off--that was a monster!

    Congrats on a great haul!

    Enjoy!
