Welcome to the forum! Without photos, however, it's impossible to comment on the watch. We need to have pictures of the front of the watch as well as the movement, plus both the inside and outside of the case back.

Can you help me identify information on these three watches?

Welcome to the forum!

The watches you've posted are all ladies' models, so you might start by perusing the thread I'm linking, which is a compilation of all the ladies' Hamilton models shown in the Hamilton catalogs: http://www.vintagewatchforums.com/viewt ... 774#p19774

I'm guessing your watches are from perhaps sometime in the 1950s or 1960s. There were a bewildering number of diamond watches issued by Hamilton in that period.

For us to comment specifically about any of your three, however, we need to see sharply focused photos of the inside and outside of the case back and also one of the movement. If you don't know how to open the watches or are reluctant to try, ask a jeweler to do it.

I've looked through "Hamilton Dials - Womens" and "Just the Ladies' Catalogs" and have not been able to find the model name or year of manufacture for this (1980's ?) Hamilton women's 14k round automatic (with batons on the dial) with integrated bracelet. I popped open the rear part of the case and it came out intact, all in one piece through to the dial, leaving the crystal and bezel and the integrated bracelet, intact, on my countertop. Don't know anything about watches and didn't want to have parts all over the place so I didn't pry anything else apart and just snapped the case back in to the bezel

. Would appreciate any help provided. Oh, acid-tested the bracelet as 14k, just not sure if solid 14k or heavy electroplate.

Unfortunately, we don't have a complete set of ladies catalog pages for the 70's and that is probably the era for this watch. I wish I could be more help.

Look for the Milton model in the catalogs & photo thread. I don't recall it having a black dial, though.

I have yet another mystery here...This one is engraved with a 1960 date, but I can't find this one on the catalogs around that time period. Has anyone ever seen this model? Thanks so much!! :)

This model should be in the catalogs, except the someone had a hole cut in the dial to expose the movement. Kinda cool, but it likely did not leave the factory like that.
