To all our Vets here and at home. Thank you all.

Took my 85 year old Dad to the WWII museum last weekend. Will make a post when have time.

Mad props to my Pop, veteran of USAF and US Army. And to my Uncle Tom who fought in tanks at Kasserine Pass and then volunteered for the USAF during Korea. And to my Uncle Ned, a Seabee who fought at Bougainville and ended the war on Okinawa. And finally to my Uncle Bobby who was a helicopter crew chief in Vietnam. All heros in my mind.

Your family had balls of brass, Loaf.

All of them very kind, humble men. I tried to go Army, USAF and Navy as an RN but with a history of a broken hip at age 9, all said "no way". Of course I knew I wouldn’t be on a battlefield so there was no bravery on my part for sure. My Dad and uncles had no such assurance. Dad was in during Korea and actually feels bad that he didn’t see action. FFS, I don’t have that kind of metal.

Very, very nice, Mike...this is a brand that I don't yet own, but has been on my 'want list' for a while, even as the company has gone the way of the Edsel... :(

Thanks. I have 4 HMT. This is the nicest one IMO, a simple classic design with a great collection of dial, indices, and hands. I have a blue, pink, and black. I paid under $10 each for the others but bid higher to get this one when I saw it on ebay. I think I paid $35, still easy money. What I love most about these are that they are hand wind. My first watches as a boy were hand wind and I still prefer that over automatic.

Wow, they're all very beautiful, and I especially like the pink and the black. Of course, all of them serve to remind me that perhaps it's time to take a serious look at finding examples as clean and well-functioning as yours...dang, so many watches, so little scratch...

Many thanks for sharing your HMT line up with me (and everyone else)! 8-)
