I’ve seen a lot of people just flip a watch over, look at the face, look at the back and say, “This is worth $50.” You really can’t do that. Maybe most of the time you can, but you’re going to miss a lot if you don’t take a watch apart and see what’s in it. The movement is at least half of the collectibility and value of a watch. So I spent a lot of the time getting watches opened, and that was very difficult. So if I do it again, I’ve got to be a little more efficient.

The Robert is a rare Hamilton watch. It is very unusual in the design of the 14K solid gold case with the wild lugs top and botton. The black dial is original and shows very little aging. If you really love this one, check out the ladies “Roberta” on the Ladies page. It is identical except for the size, and would make a wonderful dual purchase for Christmas or Valentines day. $875.00 SOLD Glossary
I got interested in pocket watches from working on mechanical things. I had an old car, and working on it gave me immediate satisfaction. It’s a thrill to fix something and get it to run. But I realized that keeping an old car in San Francisco wasn’t the most efficient thing to do, so I guess pockets watches became a substitute. From pocket watches I moved into wristwatches. Pocket watches are still my primary interest, but I love classic wristwatches , like old Rolex Bubblebacks and things like that. This Hamilton Coronado from 1937 is an Art Deco masterpiece. It features 14K white gold, black enamel, and blued steel hands.
