    hi buddy if you are asking the meaning of the initials are it signifies GENERAL SERVICE TRADE PATTERN and sometimes referred to as GENERAL SERVICE TEMPORY PATTERN - forgive me if that was not your question!

    This piece is not vintage but a reproduction by the original manufacturer, Hamilton, of their WWII Officers Field Issue watch with a few mods. I believe the straps were also period reproductions from the original issue.

    Thought I would post this information based post on this Hammie as it was a rare one and I still have the info on it.

    This information post is based on a sale post I made for it a number of years ago so please disregard any sales related info.

    For those who love WWII and military pieces this one was a beauty.

    Hamilton produced this exact piece for use in WWII with some modern upgrades such as a ETA Automatic movement, Sapphire Crystal, and Quick set Date. This one is a Limited Edition and sold out very very quickly due to the great collectibility and value of WW II relics.





    This actual reproduction of the Field issue watch by the original manufacturer to GI troops during the “War to end all Wars”, WWII. This piece was commissioned to honor the WWII Memorial in WashingtonDC. There were only 3333 pieces issued and this one is number 0727 of 3333. This Limited Edition is completely “sold out” and will not be reissued despite numerous requests from military collectors.

    This specific piece has never been worn by me. I regret selling it but it just had to be. Too many watches and not enough $$$. You guys know the story.

    Included with this piece were 2 straps…A heavy Hamilton brown leather strap with a bead blasted signed buckle and a replica WWII fabric strap for the authentic look of the original.

    The dial has the “Limited Edition” notated on the dial!
    Do not confuse this piece with the Hamilton reissue for Pearl Harbor. The Pearl Harbor piece is nice but in no way compares! This piece has a Swiss Mechanical Manual Wind movement (just as the original watch) as well as upgraded (compared to the original) conveniences such as quick set date function and a hacking feature (able to stop the second hand by pulling out the crown which the original did not have).

    Click on the thumbnail images for full size images!

    This piece also has a numbered Certificate of Authenticity as well as a special wooden presentation box and Hamilton outer box. These upgrades are unique to this edition. The serial number for this piece is engraved on the side of the case.

    These pieces are hard to find and I have never seen one on ebay or anywhere else for that matter!
