Re: Incoming Hamilton 6B/910-1000 H

Looks fantastic Mike. Hope all is well in your little slice of heaven
Believe it or not it snowed in the higher elevation the other day and was in the 40's with cold rain but stating to get back into the 70's. Weather in MT can change on a dime.

The one on the bottom with white dial has a issue date of 1940 imagine if that one could talk the Battle of Britain was going on in that year. It's the history these watch...

Incoming Hamilton 6B/910-1000 H

Been wanting to try one of these a British RAF issued Hamilton 6B/910-1000 H for a while this is the first model with none hacking movement. The later ones had a hacking movement. This has a 36mm case with 18mm lugs with Cal. 75 hand wind movement so a larger case than most military issued Hamilton ...

Wouldn't doing a shot gun were you put a tiny hole on the bottom of the beer can and put your mouth on the hole and then pop the pull tab and the whole can of beer is gone in a few seconds.
