    Off Topic post Hamilton...like brand new

    For a while, I was looking to buy current models or Vietnam era military watches. But, I couldn't find anything that something special until this came along.

    I don't have much information except.
    1. made in 1940s
    2. manual movement keeping correct time
    3. silver plated dial
    4. lug size 18mm which is very good

    Even though it's not military or military style watch, I'm just impressed with its look.

    Nice watch. The gleen of the finish and the lack of deterioration of any kind, especially in the lume on the hands, points to a redial.

    We love movement pics!!

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I love the look! I agree, it's probably a redial, but it will look great on the wrist. Is it about 33mm +- ?

    hello. nice watch. very clean.

    it's from the late 50s. the closest i could find is the 1958 model called the Cabot. here's the catalog:

    i think the movement is probably swiss.

    Cool Re: Hamilton...like brand new

    I think, some watches have stories to tell and some don't. For this watch, it doesn't have any letters or engravings, and I don't even know what's called. So, I'm satisfied with it looking new feeling like the first owner.
