Picked this one up at a yard sale for a dollar. Interestingly, it features both English AND Spanish days of the week! Can't find anything about it online anywhere. SN: 707010-3

I'm thinking it's from the 70s? Maybe 80s? Would love to know more about where it was likely manufactured and when!

Thanks, all. :)

I'm new to the forum, and apologize if I haven't searched well enough to find the answer to my question in any of the other threads. I checked through the photo ID thread, and browsed a few others to see if I could identify the watch in the attached images, but didn't find a matching cushion shape/ style. The watch is a family heirloom piece, given as a retirement gift to a no-deceased family member. The back of the case is engraved, so I cannot identify any model numbers or information from that. It appears to be, stylistically, 60's-early 70's from what I've seen of Hamilton's model lineup during that time, but I'm not extensively familiar with Hamilton's model history.

Any help would be great- not looking to sell it, so much as to better understand the history of the watch.

Thanks!
This one does not appear in the catalogs we have available. It was most likely produced after 1977, which is beyond the scope of the catalogs we have.

That would be the Lange, a model not seen very often.

Hello. New here. I need help identifying this watch. 986 movement. Keystone case. I'm assuming it's from the 1940s with a movement from the 20s, which was not unusual for Hamilton to do during WWII. But if anyone can help to identify it, it would be much appreciated. - James

Case, dial, and hands are aftermarket. Seems only the movement is Hamilton.

Hoping someone might identify this one. There are four diamonds. The wristband (appears to be "Forstner" (?) also has four diamonds. On the back side, it says Hamilton and 14K gold on top/rear of the watch. Thank you in advance!! Kevin

Welcome to the forum! There's a thread comprising catalogs of Hamilton ladies' models, by year, so try looking there: http://www.vintagewatchforums.com/viewt ... 774#p19774

Offhand, I'm guessing that the watch you've posted is from sometime in the 1950s. (I doubt seriously that the watchband has diamonds, since the maker's mark shows it is gold-filled, not solid gold.)
