Please post your mystery Hamilton watches here. Please post only if all other catalog, photo thread searches and forum discussion has failed to identify the model. This way, we will be able to isolate the unknown models for future reference if new reference material becomes available.

I'll start. This one is unmarked case material/ssb and is marked 80034-4. I have no idea what to call it.

Another 10k rolled gold plate Hamilton with a 770 grade movement. It has "22 JEWELS" inscribed on the dial like the 1969 "Coin" and other unidentified period watches.

posted this in the "August Incoming" topic yesterday

this dateline automatic looks like it uses the same case (with a different case #) as one of the watches on page 1 of the master photo thread with the blue dial

my case # 53062
dial reads:
17 jewels
Automatic
Incabloc

band looks original but is unsigned

SS case, gold raised numeral dial. I will have to edit particulars in later. I have seen three others exactly like this configuration but, no catalog mention.

Here's a mystery Hamilton. 14K. Nookster also has one; the serial numbers are about 60 apart. 770 movement.

This is the "no name" Hamilton with a Tiffany & Co. Dial. 14K; 982 movement. Undoubtedly there is a name someplace

I've posted this one before, without getting it identified http://vintagewatchforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=5047. It uses the same case as a Nevin II, but the decoration on the case is entirely different:

And, for comparison, with a Nevette:

Both watches use the same movement, but it's crowded in the Nevette, where there's a lot less space.

This unknown and uncatalogued model sports a signed Hamilton 14k gold case. The top bezel has a florentine-style finish. The case, exclusive of the lugs, measures 25mm by 25mm. The lug width is 17.60 mm. The bracelet, which I think may be a factory original, reads "Kestenmade" on its fastener and has a 1/20 gold filled top with a stainless steel back. The watch runs a 731 grade movement. The post that would hold the subsidiary seconds hand appears to have been carefully filed down at the factory so as to accommodate a dial that does not use a seconds hand.
