980969 Hamilton with braided cord style bezel

#1 Post by Namespetra » Sun Jul 15, 2018 7:48 pm

Does anyone know the identity of this Hamilton watch? I don’t believe it appeared in any catalog. It has a case number of 980969. The 10k yellow gold filled Star case features an attractive braided cord style bezel. The watch bracelet is not original to the watch. It runs an electronic grade 645 movement which I believe is an ESA 9154.

Great looking watch

Closest model I see is the Electronic Sirius - the catalog shows a much thinner bezel / case rim than your example

Thanks! I like it too. The bezel and dial look a bit different than the Electronic Sirius. The lug width is very narrow, 14mm. It was likely designed like the 1971 Dateline A-477 to accept a bracelet that goes over the lugs.

Nice score!

I suspect that the lugs are so narrow because it originally had a bracelet that slipped over the lugs, like the A-477.
