Re: Post Your Mystery Hamiltons Here.

Could someone shed some light on the movement and perhaps case material of this ? Could it be solid gold or is it just rolled gold or something like that ?

Something about the whole thing just seems fishy. Those godawful Hamiltons, Bulovas, etc., with the...

Re: Help Identifying 1935 Omega Tank

The movement is a 20F, not a T17. There were a gazillion cool Art Deco steel Omega tanks from this era, mostly with T17s, less frequently with this 20F caliber.
