Hi
This is going for a good price but why is the date at right angles? Is the wrong mechanism in the watch?

I'd suggest an incorrect date wheel has been fitted, probably from a watch that has the date at six o'clock.

Hi,
This looks better, I have no relation with the seller, but as I saw you were looking for a Bullhead, I decided to post it

Those black datedisks were typical from Hamilton Chrono-Matic . Seller probably killed a good Hamilton Fontainebleau to complete a Bullhead project . Hands from a Transocean .
