    Hamilton Thin-o-matic

    Hi,
    I'm a new one. I have a question about Thin-o-matic. There are two kinds of movement in Thin-o-matic.
    One is the common automatic movement and the other is micro rotor. I want to buy a micro rotor but
    how can I know what kind of movement inside the watch from outward appearance?
    Thank you!
    Andy

    As far as I know Hamilton had two different micro rotors in the Thin-O-Matic watches, the 628 and the 663. There isn't any real way to tell save for either taking out the movement or finding another example of your watch online or in an advert. Some people say the case back is more flat on the micros but its hard to tell. Others may know more.

    I think that asking for a picture of the movement is always the best way to go.

    Normally I would agree but in the case of Thin-o-matics a lot of them open through the crystal. It may be too much trouble or out of their realm of knowledge for the seller.

    P.S. Where in PA are you?
