I was able to pick up this Hamilton on eBay for $95. Itís in beautiful condition minus a scratched crystal. I believe itís the Rodney (1953) model with the Masonic dial. I have been reading up on it quite a bit and I found that the lug width is supposed to be 17mm or 18mm.
When I measured the lugs, it appears to be about 16.5mm. The band itself is 16mm. Iím guessing the lugs might be slightly bent. My question is what size band should I go with? 16mm or try to squeeze a 17mm band in there? Thanks!
