    Hamilton Glenn.

    I have a bit of a weakness for old tank watches,have just received this Hamilton after a bit of a wait,i am very pleased with it,because of its generous size for its time,i think it looks quite good on the wrist.

    Regards,
    Russ.

    Hamilton made arguably the best American watch in its time, comparable to Omega. This 747 movement dates to approx. 1948 and looks beautiful. Thanks for posting.

    Beautiful Hammy, Russ.

    I'm impressed by the high-grade "adjusted" and Geneva-striped movement. Hope you didn't have to pay too much of a premium for the movement. Congrats!

    Thank you Tom,i had no idea that early Hamiltons could be equal to Omega grade[ignorance on my part is bliss ] so i now think it was very reasonable.

    Best Regards,
    Russ.

    Check out this link to a 1949 Consumer Reports Article. I think there's a quality ranking on Page 6.

    Re: Hamilton Glenn.

    What a fascinating document,thanks very much for taking the time to post it.

    95% of my watch collection is Russian[which suites my tight budget] but i do now and again purchase other makes if they are whithin my budget and i like them.
    I have been finding out about them in this and other forums,i have two Omegas which came to me via Eastern europe[where i have found very honest sellers]and have got a lot of pleasure out of finding out about there movements and if they have been redialed etc.

    Thanks once again to the forum members for filling in the History of my Hamilton,it will allow me to enjoy it even more.
