    Hamilton 956

    Here is my Hamilton 956, a 16 size 17j pendant set watch from 1920 (it arrived at the Hamilton finishing department 30 April 1920). The majority of the 48.500 watches made in grade 956 were factory cased by Hamilton. This one has sadly lost its original case at some time during its life, so it is now housed in a Hamilton signed salesman's case with glass display back.

    Say what you will, Erik, I still think that's a stunning watch in a stunning case! It's so beautiful!

    Is it a nickel case? It looks a bit battered.

    It actually looks better in hand than on those pictures. Its is a nickel original Hamilton display case, compare to my 936 which is not:
