Re: K-475 on ebay

I would guess it's the one, as I received an email from someone asking if I had a spare rotor for a 690. I only have a complete movement with dial and hands I explained, I could not just sell the rotor.

Re: Hamilton Prototype Cases-Some used by Hamilton

Thanks Rene for jumping in. When I bought the first phase of these from Rene, I bought the K-475 and Flight models. I was so excited to see the K-475, I forgot the Flight was in the box and threw it away. When I realized what I had done, I ran to the trash bin at my office, and it was gone. Rene had...
