Re: K-409 with US Military Service Number on the back

Thank you all for the explanations and link! Ah, I see, he was an enlisted member of the Army of the United States, i.e., a draftee and not a member of the US Army. Interesting differentiation. I wasn’t aware of this “sophisticated” system (but I know now, that for example the famous 101st Airborne ...

K-409 with US Military Service Number on the back

Just recently I bought a K-409 (listed in the catalogs 1958 and 1959): K-409_08_1024x767.jpg Well, a nice looking watch – but in this case my interest is focused on the presentation engraving on the back: K-409_03_1024x767.jpg So, L. W. Thomas received this watch on Christmas 1961 (I'm pretty sure, ...

Re: Pierce Chronograph

Matt at thewatchtech.com has been doing Pierce's for me for years. If you ask him nicely he might do yours. He just did this early fixed lug chronograph for me. It's a unusual piece as it doesn't show Pierce on the dial but definitely is a Pierce. If anyone has any idea about the name on the dial l...

Re: Help to ID watch??

I think this watch movement is measured in calories :) Watch.jpg Well, at least, the Polish manufacturer measures the watch in Gramms. It weights 40 Gramms = 1.41 oz: https://angelinachocolate.pl/chocogadgets-chocohobby/zegarek.html Unfortunately, they don't have an English version of their page. P...

Re: System of the Hamilton Dash models (4 or 5 digits plus dash)

Randy, Marc and Dan: thank you very much for your kind words! Good to know, that I’m not the last who understood the idea behind the Dash numbers! But actually, I have to thank especially Dave for his database of the dash numbered Hamiltons, as well as all members of this forum who contributed to Da...

System of the Hamilton Dash models (4 or 5 digits plus dash)

Maybe I’m the last who understood the system behind the dash model numbers – but maybe not. Anyway: yesterday when I noticed a new model number of a ZentRa Savoy (the German Cousin of the Swiss made Hamiltons) I suddenly realized the meaning of these model numbers. Well, the system was known already...

Re: Hamilton 61008-4 brown dial with some oddities

Meanwhile my fraternal twins received a sister Hamilton_DAU_26061-4_06_1024x768.jpg By coincidence, this „match mate“ was offered recently on ebay UK. In principle, I don’t collect Ladies’ watches, but in this case, I couldn’t resist. And it’s really NOS and the price was moderate, to say the least....

Re: Hamilton Boxes

I am wondering if the guarantee affixed to the bottom of hamilton boxes that include a "watch no." and "case number" can identify the type of watch the box came with. Would the watch number refer to the movement serial number perhaps? or is there no relation to the movement and/or model with these ...

Re: Hamilton 61008-4 brown dial with some oddities

Nor have I come across that Tissot inspired Hamilton movement. Could it be that this watch is not a validly licensee Hamilton product? The misspelling of “Swiss” on the inside case back is suspicious. Hi Namespetra“, I agree with you: the wrong writing of „SWISS“ is suspicious. But I believe the wa...

Hamilton 61008-4 brown dial with some oddities

Just landed a „Brownie“ with the case number 61008-4 , what could belong to the „1968 M4-Color Classics“ line – I don’t know. Hamilton_61008-4_01b_1024x768.jpg Hamilton_61008-4_02_1024x767.jpg Normally, I do prefer the perfect black background – in this case, a vintage English leather case was the b...
