This is how I get points at home! I picked up a vintage Hamilton tank watch that is very small by today's standards and made a nice Croc strap for it. My wife needed a smallish watch for more formal situations as she has taken to wearing my (large) watches. She wore this out for dinner the other night and I think it looks classy on her and she can still tell the time without her glasses!

My wife actually has more watches (in number) than I do now!

Very nice old Hammy. My wife would ask me why it stopped running after one day!

That Hammy looks great!! My wife won't wear vintage. I bought her a couple dozen watches over the years and now all she wears is a couple Seikos and the Tag I got her last Thanksgiving.
