    Orient Mako XL. This will be one of the last times I wear it on leather as I'm starting to switch everything over to NATOs.

    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.

    Travel has upset my normal schedule. I usually rotate my pocketwatch weekly, on Sunday. Today, I returned from nearly 2 weeks on the road. Waiting for me was a package with a newly serviced gem. All it needed was a simple COA. This is a Hamilton 940 - with several twists. Let's leave some of them as a quiz.

    First, and most obvious, this watch is in a Hamilton display case. It has a snap on front bezel and a glass back so you can see the movement. This is not uncommon in current watches - but was basically a salesman's case back in the day. It wasn't intended for actual day-to-day use, but I wear it this way to show off the movement without removing the back. It's a nice novelty, if not terribly "correct".

    Second - look at the dial. I'll leave it at that. What strikes you about the dial? What looks familiar? What looks strange? Do visions of lawsuits dance in your head?

    Third - (not shown) It turns out that under a strong light there's a surprise lurking in the background. Do the initials O.R.T. mean anything to you? How would you choose between an O.R.T. dial and an A.K. Jobe dial - if you had to choose? I should note that the movement is marked "A.K. Jobe - Water Valley, Miss/Jackson, Tenn". Does that change your decision?

    Finally - if the stars align, next weekend I may meet a descendant of the may who constucted this artificial display piece. If that happens, I may have confirmation on several bits of history, which I will share...next week.
