Just got this. 1959 Hamilton "Thor".
Very nice as well as having Hamilton's 770 cal. 22 jewel movement. The best movement Hamilton ever produced, which to me is saying quite a bit.
Paid about $185.00

Just one thing. Vintage is being hyped to a degree already leading to practicalky every major brand to search their catalogs for more or less iconic models that they are then launching as re-issues or at least use as reference. 2 or 3 years again, that trend may be over. I wonder what that is then going to mean for parts of the overheated vintage market.

In twenty years or so, the German language will be one, massively long compound word.
