    Scored a Hamilton with a "microrotor" automatic!

    Just won this beauty on German eBay. It's one of several Hamiltons equipped with a Buren microrotor automatic (Hamilton Grade 666 - - OH-OH! ). This one is gold filled and in great condition. Couldn't find it listed in Shugart, though. Wish I knew the model name.





    Regards from Sunny San Diego..........Tom

    Thank you for not bidding, John! The price was 'very good.' I have been intrigued by the Hammies with the Buren microrotor so I've been looking to pick one up. A few other manufacturers used that same movement. Haven't read much about the microrotor good or bad, but they sure are "different!"

    Hi -

    That price wasn't merely "very good", it was a damn shame for the seller.

    Check your PM...
