    Thoughts/info on this '62 Hamilton Thinomatic?

    Hey guys,

    I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on this Hamilton Thinomatic that I think is from 1962 (there is an inscription on the back from an employer to an employee dated 1962, although I know that doesn't necessarily mean that's the year the watch was made).

    The watch is at a pretty big antique market and watches aren't really a specialty of the employees so, although they were hospitable, couldn't offer much info on the watch.

    The watch is listed for $310 (although apperently there's some room for negotiation)... Do you think that is a fair price, what if I could get it down to $275ish? (I know that appraisals are illegal on here, I don't think asking if a price is fair is though...).

    Anyways I'd appreciate your guy's opinions on this watch/transaction, ive always been intersting in owning an old hamilton, a piece of american 'haute horologie' :P and I'd appreciate any info you have to add on the model.

    It also comes with all original boxes and I believe the original papers.

    Thanks guys!

    This is one of those things that, if you think the price is fair, then it probably is. Original box and papers are certainly a plus.

    I'd factor a service cost in because it's definitely going to need it.

    I suspect it was made 1961 or 62
    If you really like it, yes its worth $275.
    Have you done a Ebay advanced search World Wide + Completed Listings to see what they are selling for
    That is my first advice
