    Help Identifying Hamilton Pocket Watch

    I found the Hamilton Pocket watch depicted at a flea market this morning. It doesn't work but 20$ didn't seem to much to ask. I'd appreciate any help in identifying it. I tried to open the back, as there appears to be a lip, but it didn't open easily and I didn't want to pry too hard. Thanks in advance.Name:  20180414_124831 (1280x1254).jpg

    You will need to open the back. Don't give up.

    It's probably just some dirt holding it in. Get a nice "thin" blade to go up under the lip to pry it off. Too thick of blade and you'll probably slip and scratch the case, so just take your time.

    Made some progress, the number on the inside of the case back that opens is 231274. There are other markings but I can't make them out.Name:  20180414_174041 (1280x1006).jpg

    There should be a slim gap on the inner lid were you saw the lip on the outer lid......

    Parts are common and they are easy to work on. Worth getting going in my opinion.
