Howdy all. After lurking around here (and eBay) for a while, I bit the bullet and bought my first vintage watch - a Hamilton 910 size 12, made circa 1922 according to the serial number. I tried to do my homework before buying by reading threads in this forum.
I got it off of eBay, and for a pretty good price too, I think. It seems to run well but I plan to get it cleaned & serviced asap. I really like the dial... I've looked through a lot of auctions and haven't seen one similar to it yet.
One question for you all: does the "Guaranteed 25 years" stamp in the case mean it's definitely 14k gold filled? I got that impression from reading a thread before purchasing. The person auctioning it didn't list it as gold filled.
