Chrono 5001?

#1 Post by SeattleJeff » Mon Apr 30, 2018 1:31 pm

Hello everyone,
Looking for a little help on identifying this watch — I see a panda version referenced as a Chrono 5001, does that hold true for the reverse panda?

What years were these produced (I don’t see it in the catalogs, but have been looking at late 60s & early 70s).

What bracelet would this have been sold with?

And lastly, why is this thing so thick? The case is 3/8” think, the replacement crystal is tiny bit more than 1/8” thick... Is that typical? It’s much thicker than my Chonomatic A... just seems odd since it’s not an automatic.... (could it be the wrong case? The outside back is marked Hamilton-Swiss and stainless steel, but the inside back is unmarked... the movement is marked Hamilton...).

Thanks in advance for your help and comments...

I do not know if the panda and reverse panda have different names. There is very little information about some models in this era.

I put the photos together in the photo threads for reference, as much as a placeholder as anything else, so that we can locate the photos if/when more detailed information is found.

In most cases, Hamilton would name a Watch the Chronomatic "A" would be white dial and "B" would be a black dial.

So logic might say it's a Chron 5001-B?
