    Hamilton Sea Ranger

    Sorry for the less than wonderful photography. The watch is my latest Hamilton acquisition, a Sea Ranger with a 770 movement. This movement was a 22J manual wind movement and the last of the Lancaster made wrist watch movements. The case is 10K gold filled. This model was listed in the 1962 and 1963 Hamilton catalog.

    A very cool Hamilton Ron. How big is it?
    I like the shape. Hows about a wrist shot?

    Peace,
    Scott

    An 'end of an era' watch.... very collectible! very wearable too!!

    "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!

    That looks like a great watch, in great shape.

    I have a Wesley-B with the same movement. It's been rock solid and almost keeps time within chronometer specs.

    Congratulations on a nice find!

    As requested, here's a wrist shot on my 7 inch wrist and another picture showing it next to a current 38mm Swiss Hamilton Khaki Automatic.
