In the process of finding one good vintage wristwatch to own, I had to send back a number of watches to ebay sellers. There was always at least one thing that I didn't like about the condition. I would have liked the Hammy with 770 movement, but, the minute hand was bent. This ones bottom lugs are a little off, but, still OK. It is going on 52 years.
Finally I found a Rodney with a nice dial. I found it by searching through the vintage Hamiltons, not by entering the name. It has a nice inscription from 1958 by the Gypsum industry for the valued service of it's recipient.
This one has the 735 movement, which had incabloc added. The dial and crystal are in excellent condition. The listing said it was working great. When I got it, it was not working at all. I might replace this band with a NOS gold plated expansion band somewhere down the road.
One interesting note from the watchmaker was that she, (states only female watchmaker) said I was lucky because no one had worked on this watch before! "No one had been in there messing it up." I am not sure this is so good, or not. Could be good, but, best case would have been one owner and consistent scheduled maintenance. Regardless, I am happy with the watch.
