I got it at a yard sale, seemed promising. The bands and case back are made of stainless steel.

Looking for some ID help. I don’t know much about this watch as it was a gift from my mother in law. It has 28 jewels; eight on top, eight on bottom and 12 about the watch face. The back is stamped 14k gold and the face does say Hamilton. Please help! Thank you!

Hello all! Glad to have found this wonderful forum... found these 2 beauties today and thought I would share and seek some advice and info.

Well aware Marvin is not a Hamilton but since they were found together i decided to show together and hope this does not upset anyone

Read this primer for identifying ladies diamond watches. It explains not only what to do, but also why these watches often turn out not to be actual Hamilton models.

I have my grandfather’s Hamilton Watch that was given to him in 1965 for 30 years of service to Standard Oil of Bew Jersey (Esso). I understand from this forum that the Masterpiece designation denotes it was an Award or Presentation watch, which makes sense because that is the engraving. I believe the watch May be a 1961 Norton. Anyone disagree?

I also have what I believe is a 1946 Endicott that was my great-grandfather’s retirement gift. No engraving though. Can anyone confirm date and model? I wear this one daily. It still works well.

No way to confirm the year as the Endicott was made from 1938-41 & 1946.

The lugs are different than a Norton. It looks like the same case as the Sherwood M. The Awards Division did not generally use production models for the presentation pieces. Usually, they made changes or mixed and matched dials and cases to make unique pieces for presentations. You are unlikely to find an exact match in for the catalogs for a presentation piece.
