Another Super Compressor? You betcha!

Many of you may know that I already have a Bulova super compressor diver. It was one of my earlier vintage purchases, and remains one of my all time favorites.
Well, last week I was perusing eBay (gasp!), and saw this beauty with a 'buy-it-now' that was too good to pass on, so I snagged it. When it arrived yesterday, I was blown away by how big this thing is, 42mm wide and 52mm long! Date code is for 1961, and it is in near mint condition. Still glows brightly, runs perfectly and been keeping time since. Now I can't get it off my wrist! Some quick pics:

Answer:
My Hamilton super compressor, the Aquadate from about 1966. Don't you love these old pieces? True classics in every sense of the word.
Answer:
Very nice indeed!

Answer:
Thanks, and that's a lovely Hamilton. That one is high on my list, but the last nice one on eBay went for over $500. Not unreasonable, but more than I had bid :(.
