    Picked this up at the Brimfield Antique Fair today

    Went to the Brimfield Antique Fair today. First booth I went in to had the Hamilton you see in the photos. Gave it a shake and it ran for 3-5 seconds then stopped. Negotiated with the gentleman a bit and we settled on $45.
    Two hours later I pulled it out of my pocket and it was running. I set the time and it has been spot on for the last 6 hours. Still going to take it in for a cleaning/oiling.
    The strap was disgusting so I switched it out for the brown leather and gave the case a wipe down with a damp towel when I got home.
    It's my first real vintage watch and for $45 it's tough to beat. Really happy with it.
    On a side note, the Brimfield Fair is absurdly huge. Spent 6 hours there and didn't cover even half of it. Saw some other cool pieces but this is the only thing I came home with.
    Enjoy the picks.
