    Help Identifying Hamilton - Thank You!

    Hello - I recently purchased this beautiful Hamilton on Ebay.

    It is running strong and I would like to identify the model and year if possible. Case size is 32mm.

    My guess is late 1950s to mid-1960s?

    The photos are from the Ebay seller.

    The photo showing the movement is not in focus, but I believe the movement is 688 ("688" appears out of focus on the movement).

    Thank you!

    Nice watch! This is as close as I could find. But it's an automatic.

    Looking at the pic with the inside of the case shows the serial number (starts with R) ending with 69. That means the watch was made in 1969

    Looking at the 1968-1969 catalog

    Found at this website

    Hamilton Catalog 1968 - Vintage Watch Forums

    It looks to be a Sea Crest III which was offered in bracelet and strap versions. This used the 688 manual winding movement.

    Here is a write up from my favorite Hamilton website
