The beautiful Hamilton breguet overcoiled, blued HS, sends a chill down my spine, yes, I need a life 😆

This all seems original and probably hasn’t been touched since the last service date inscription of 1932 LOL

Just something I like to do with my watches, I check the production dates and then do a little search to see what was going on in, lets say, for this watch, 1907…
1907
Jan 1st – Pres Theodore Roosevelt shakes a record 8,513 hands in 1 day

Feb 11th – Passenger ship Larchmont sinks by Block Island, 322 die

Feb 13th – English suffragettes storm British Parliament & 60 women are arrested

Mar 5th – 1st radio broadcast of a musical composition aired

May 31st – Taxis 1st began running in NYC

Jul 1st – World’s 1st air force established (US Army)

Jul 29th – Sir Robert Baden-Powell forms Boy Scouts in England

Nov 16th – Oklahoma becomes the United States 46th state

Kinda puts the watch era in to perspective, and it’s interesting :ugeek:
