Hamilton Broadway RR dial watch build

Post by barnbuilder on Thu 13 Jan 2011, 4:48 pm

I recently built a Hamilton white porcelain dial watch and quickly decided to build a railroad dial watch with the large numbers and hands. The case is 42mm with sapphire and ar coating, ordered the strap from Brian of BJ straps, excellent work he does, and the nos dial from Switzerland, it only took 5 weeks to get here.
I really like the look of this dial that I had to resize to fit the case, also the minute hand had to be reduced in length.

Ron, I can't help but think you should become a watchmaker. I will try to convince you this weekend when I get to see these babies in person. Great Work!

Ron,
No offense to all your excellent work on the front - but that movement makes me want to wear the watch back-to-front! Very nice indeed.
