Picked up a new tranny!

Post by smellody » June 22nd 2021, 10:44am

Hamilton Transcontinental that is! Somehow I knew that would get Conjurbaitor's attention.

We met last Thursday at the Portland RedBar.

For me, it was love at first sight.

The map on the dial rotates and allows simultaneous tracking of Greenwich (GMT) Eastern, Central, Mountain, and Pacific time zones.

Comes on an amazing era correct twisto by JB Champion with lizard 🦎 inserts of various texture.

Found another NOS one on a popular auction site:

Dad picked it up for me for Christmas just now. Super excited. He is is going to try it out until he delivers it to me next weekend.

Some pictures from one of my reading/looking books on the model:

It's better than an old tranny with a lot of hard miles on it. That one is different for sure.

cool. I was frankly speaking wondering about the "G", didn't recognize the British Isles immediately... got briefly caught on Guam or so and wondered who in hell would put that on a watch dial. :dssd:
