The Hammy has an inexpensive movement as well...nothing wrong with that! Both the Miyota and ETA are robust and proven.Yes on the movement. Inexpensive automatic. Wanted something ‘different’ so went with brass finish. Love that Hammy, have the same one and goes with everything, true classic. Like that strap, I’m due for a new one soon. Love the quick release pins for quick change out
Yikes! Take a cape cod cloth to that thing to bring some luster!For being a daily wearer that he did not baby in any sense of the word, yes, lol it is in great shape. The lighting in that pic definitely hides some of its age though.
I do not plan to have it polished or anything, however I did hit the crystal with some PolyWatch and it helped it out a bit. I think I want to leave it alone. I mean that's what you are supposed to do with vintage pieces anyway right?
But yes, I will more than likely have it serviced. Next time I see my grandfather I plan to ask him if he has any idea the last time it was serviced (I won't be surprised if he says "never" hah).
I'm hoping to get it open this weekend and depending on what we see I may leave it at the watchmaker for service.
Here is a closeup of it under direct, bright, LED light and pre PolyWatch...
Hah, sounds like me in Vegas. Well, the loosing money part....
