    Help identify the Hamilton? Wrist case only...

    Hey guys so this will be a challenge I would think. I got this Hamilton watch case in great condition, no gold wearing off. I really want to find a Hamilton movement to put in this. I know it will probably be impossible but can anyone identify what would have been original to this case? The case measures 30mm from the outside edge to the other side.

    That looks like the case from an 'Neil,' catalogued from 1948 to 1952. It used a 747 movement. That won't be hard to find, but a Neil dial could be more challenging. You may want to check periodically on eBay to see if you can find one with a badly worn case to serve as a donor for the case, dial, and hands.

    Been only over a month and I scored this today! Looks pretty good!! Thanks for the help, feels good to reunite a movement with a case. Hopefully they fit now lol!
