    Hi and welcome
    Yes its a small (common) style ladies watch from 60s/70s
    It probably had a small metal strap band, they were attached to the watch case by a small round gold plated link, just like a bracelet.
    I can find some typical pictures and post them if you need or Google search Hamilton Ladies watch(vintage)
    The serial numbers on the back are most likely for the case

    Regards
    Adam

    Or it may have had what is known as a 'cocktail strap' - something like this:
