    Tornado Warning wrist shot. Currently: Flash Flood Warning, Tornado Warning, Torrential Rains. Glad I got my Campfire/Reading done early today. (Glad the LLD is good to 30 Bar )

    One advantage to my Ham Radio Hobby, I can listen in on the Storm Spotters. The Nasty stuff is a few miles southwest of us so we're fine at the house.

    Yes, currently in my collection, the Hamilton is getting nearly all the wrist time, as it's just great. I have had it on a vintage style leather strap and it looks great, but lately for summer I have it on a gray NATO, which is ideal.

    My tastes change (quite often it seems), and lately I like simpler watches, and it seems to be sticking... a watch that can do everything...the Hamilton is almost, but just not quite it, as you mentioned I wouldn't wear it with a suit... but I think a DJ could be worn with a suit or Khakis and a t-shirt, or even shorts and sandals. Of course, and nice JLC or Patek would be best for a suit (in my opinion) but if I had just one watch, the DJ would be an ideal all arounder. I'd prefer a vintage 1601 over something newer, and for new, I like the less blingly OP 39 (with white dial). I also very much like the Exp (prefer 36mm), but I still give the nod to the DJ or OP for a more all around one-watch type.


    Here's the Hamilton on a strap:

    It's still a mighty nice watch. I want one, but there are several others already in the "to buy" queue.
    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.

    Same with mine. I could very easily wear nothing but it. Currently it's easier at work to stick an all resin gshock in hot soapy water and wash it so I havent been wearing the hamilton to work very often.
