Recently listed for sale is an absolutely gorgeous and vary scarce Hamilton Odyssee 2001 swiss automatic wristwatch. This watch is nearly pristine, with only the slightest signs of wear on the watch band’s clasp. The rear case closure also shows a scratch or two. Otherwise this watch looks like it is in near mint condition. Which is really unheard of!
This gorgeous Hamilton wristwatch was acquired at auction in a box lot. The box lot contained several military metals and ribbons. As well as a nice Illinois pocket watch and a vintage Tag Heuer wristwatch. The Tag Heuer is a nice watch as well, though in my opinion is nothing compared to this work of futuristic art, made possible by one of America’s foremost authority on watch making, Hamilton!
If your wondering the answer is yes, of course it was made to commemorate the release of Stanley Kurbick’s A Space Odyssey 2001 during the summer of 1968. Why Hamilton chose to name it’s watch commemorating this film differently than the film itself is beyond me.
Anyway if your a collector, or an investor this watch is it! I am absolutely sure this watch will appreciate greatly in value over the next 10, 20 or even 30 years.
The Odyssee 2001 by Hamilton is without a doubt an heirloom piece which will be operating as smoothly as it is today 100 years from now. That is of course if it is taken care of and stored in reasonable conditions. These 21 jewel swiss automatic movements are like the straight 6 engines of the jeep world. They are definitely not an 8 cylinder power house, though they will take you anywhere and out last any big block 8 banger on four wheels!

Chinon CP-X DX, 35mm Film SLR Camera With Auto Winder And Chinar 28mm f2.8 Wide Angle Lens
This specific Chinon was my personal camera for a period of time. The camera body itself is in minty condition with little use. The body was new when I began using it. I probably have about 10 rolls of film through it so far with absolutely no issues. The winder that I am including has seen a little more use than the body itself. It was pulled from another Chinon I purchased from the same collection. So it does show significantly more wear than the camera body. The lens is just gorgeous and is optically perfect!
