Re: Black Face Hamilton 20's or 30's??

Welcome to the forum. That's a Square B Engraved from around 1930. Here is the link to the 1930 catalog on this site: http://vintagewatchforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=174 The dial on your watch has been refinished to black, it didn't originally come with a black dial. Looks great with a black dial...

Re: Correct Tonneau dial?

It appears to me that your dial was printed from the second blueprint you show, but with the numerals filled with black instead of luminous. Your dial has been refinished. There are two versions of these luminous dials... yours pictured in which all the design elements are printed from a transfer di...

Re: Hamilton Byrd

The case was much nicer than it appeared in the seller's photos. All the beveled edges of the case and lugs (there are many) are still distinct. These usually get rounded off with a lot of wear.

Edward Napolean Gosselin certainly had a sense of humor:

Re: Hamilton Byrd

Turned out to a nice example. Case has only light wear, dial has unusual gold inlaid numerals. This the first Byrd that I've had in a very long time.

Re: FS Omega Speedmaster 105.003-65 ED-White

This is a great looking package... it's nice to see all the extras (paperwork, etc.). I have a couple of vintage Speedmasters... there are not a lot of us Speedmaster collectors lurking here on this forum.

Thanks for posting, hope you do well with it.

Re: Need advice on Speedmaster and Seamaster

I don't know anything about the 321 Seamaster. Of the two Speedmasters, the first one (1965) is more appealing to me. Has correct Dot over 90 bezel and correct dial. Case looks fairly sharp. Dial and hands are a little spotty, but these things may not bother you... it is a 50+ year old vintage watch...

Re: Just arrived: Home Run 677

Thanks for the kind words.

The bezel corners on that model are highly susceptible to wear. That was the best one I've ever had.

Re: Model 1629 Home Run

I would say your watch is a Senior 680.

The Home Run 1629 you reference is the same watch with a metal band which has a brickwork pattern, different than the band on your watch.

Re: Knock, Knock, Who’s There? Hamilton Bentley!

The Bentley was catalogued from 1937 to 1939, but was made through at least 1940 or 1941, and maybe a little later.

Here is the movement serial number list so you can find a movement in the correct range:
