What is the year engraved on the back? It's hard to read even at great magnification on my computer. If it is after 1977, we don't have the catalogs. Also, since it is a Masterpiece example, it would not be in the catalogs that we have anyway. Either way, this will be a difficult identification.

Can anyone help me identify this one? The band is a cheap replacement.

Thank you, Dave! I combed through the pages of examples, but I guess that by page 19, I want quite so diligent. I'm replacing the cheap band that is on it. Does it have any value?

The dial appears to be very clean, the next question is the condition of the case with brassing? The photos don't show enough detail.

I would guess cleaned up it could range from $75 to $175 dollars. You do need two bidders to get the price to move, or someone that has desire. :D

I suspect early to mid-seventies but we are missing most of the women's catalogs for that era.

Hello! This is a 1950s era Hamilton 14K gold watch that has been passed down through a few generations in my family. It is engraved on the back as an humanitarian award given on December 20, 1959. I recall it originally had a flexband when my father wore it and not the current alligator band. As you can see, the face has a couple of scratches although it looks much nicer than the photo indicates. Inside, the movement serial number is 735. I would love to find out about the watch and when it was manufactured. I have looked through forums and web sites but I have not found this model. Coincidentally, I went to college in Lancaster, Pennsylvania right down the street from the Hamilton Watch Company. I clearly recall the red brick building.

Thank you.

I think we've talked about this model before but I couldn't find the thread. I've seen it before in white as well as yellow. Looks like it could be a Lord Lancaster of some sort. It's marked oddly - a lot like the Liberty Coin.

Anyone recall what, if anything, this model might be?

Hi everyone. I am new to this forum. i had no idea Hamilton had such a large following. Some of these vintage watches are amazing. I was wondering if you could help me to identify a watch. It is only a case. I want to restore it to it's formal glory and keep it in my family. It was my grandfather's watch. Received as a gift for 50 years in the I.B.E.W. The date received was 1969. I really don't have any more info regarding the watch. It is 14K Gold, I know that much. It is currently missing it's movement and dial, etc. and I don't think the band is original. Any help you can offer and places to find parts, etc. would be much appreciated. I wish I had known about the watch before my father passed away, he was the last key in knowing anything regarding it's history, etc.

I think it might either be a thinline or a dateline. maybe a thinline 2031 or a dateline a-279 ??? not really sure.

thanks,

Dan, here is the thread where we last discussed this watch:
viewtopic.php?f=41&t=7328&p=53235&hilit=Chromium#p53235

I still don't think it has been postively identified.

Found this in an old strong box and wondering if it's worth anything?

A new crystal and a service, and you've got a good looking watch that 95% of the rest of the planet doesn't have! :lol:

It depends. What is the case made from? It should be written on the back. That will help properly identify the model.

I think it reads "Base Metal Bezel. Stainless Steel Back."

We don't have any data or catalog references for base metal models. I can't tell you which model it is. Base metal has no innate value so it only has value according to whether it is working or not.
