Re: Post Your Mystery Hamiltons Here.

Recently took possession of my grandfather's old watch. It has a cheap Speidel band and keeps time for about 30 minutes but then stalls. I am guessing no real value but thought better to confirm with the experts first. Thanks, Sal As is, could sell for $200-$300 to a collector because the case is s...

Re: Hamilton Oval on Ebay.

So, I just checked and there are 3D printers that use 14K gold for the material. Or, they can use the model to make a metal casting and then plate it. Send the company a model, they give you an estimate. It would be awesome for watch case parts.

Good luck. It's hard enough to find the whole watch! :P

Re: Help me identify this...

It's likely some retailer's store brand with a generic movement inside. Looks to be from the 80s. That's all I can offer.

Re: Post Your Mystery Hamiltons Here.

Thank you for your response. It does not appear to have lost a lug so it must be a special case. It was a prize for finishing first in a women's trapshooting tournament in 1927 (It's engraved). I researched the Tonneau models for 1927. I found the dial, know that it is not engraved but I am not sur...

Newbie here! I have an antique Hamilton watch (working!) that belonged to my grandmother. It is engraved on the back with the date of 1927. It is very small - about 1 1/4" and may be a lapel watch as it only has one lug. Below are the details of what I found inside and out: Inside: 2238695 987 17 j...

Marks got one but with the butler dial. I was looking for the black dial.
