1961 Mahogany & Mother-of-Pearl Pacer Prototypes

Featured in the recent expanded & revised edition of Rene Rondeau's essential Hamilton Electric book, "The Watch of the Future", are these very rare prototype mahogany and mother-of-pearl dial Hamilton Electrics. Although shown here in the Pacer and Flight cases, they were part of an experiment in the Sherwood wood-dialed series (shown on bottom).

I've got a Woody - 1960's Swank Wood Watch

I've got a Woody - 1960's Swank Wood WatchSwanky, huh? Should be, it's by a long defunct German company named Swank. Solid wood watch case & dial, basically a miniature George Nelson clock for your wrist. Mechanical winding 17 jewel movement. Swank had some kooky designs like this all plastic mechanical Hamilton Ventura imitator - Link
