Military Hamilton in 1952 movie "We're Not Married"?

#1 Post by shadeone » Thu Dec 21, 2017 3:59 pm

Came across this while I had the tv on Turner Classic Movies the other day. A 1952 movie titled "We're Not Married". It's a Hamiton in a military case, white face,but it lacks the hands that have the enlarged parts near the ends, and it lacks a sub-dial. Also note the logo is curved. Is this an actual existing Hamilton military model or a Franken-build from way back when? I can't seem to find a matching watch online anywhere.

Yep... I believe that is a Hamilton Secometer. It has a 987s movement, which was also used in some military movements.

This is a civilian watch and there would be no military markings on it.

I believe there should be a picture in the photo thread, but a quick Google search for Hamilton Secometer will bring up plenty of photos.

Actually, Hamilton made military watches like that for the Canadian military during WWII. It has a 987S movement with the Secometer black enamel dial and black hands.
