Hello all, this is my first post and it is my first day wearing what is, really, my first watch. True, when younger I had a few cheap drugstore watches, but this is my first "adult" watch, finally at the age of 51. After doing a bit of research (including these forums), I decided on a Hamilton, which arrived last night. So far, I am loving it! The leather strap is a bit stiff, but I assume that breaks in over time. I sense an addiction coming on . . .
