WRUW 10/14 through 10/20/2018?

Grumpyguy was actually first today but put his Elgin Thornton on the end of last week's thread:
Tonight, a 54 Lord Elgin Thorton

I'm fond of the Thornton, so I thought I'd repost his pictures.

For church today I wore a white gold Elgin 16/0 size watch from about 1926:

(I particularly love the dial, with its beautiful butler-finish center.)

. I just purchased this 1958 Hamilton Carlyle. What a handsome piece with its textured dial.
