Thanks Tom! It definitely looks very similar to the Milton :)
It's definitely the Milton model. The dial may have been custom refinished in black. I've done that before.

Can someone help identify this watch, please? It was my grandfather's. Thanks!

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!! :)
It's a Radburn that's had some radical cosmetic surgery.

Hey everyone :) I have another one that I can't seem to figure out...I've narrowed it down to either an electric Everest II or an electric Vantage. However, the word "electric" is cursive on mine, and the photos I've seen of these watches aren't in cursive. Does anyone know which it is? Thanks so much!! :)

Newbie here!

I have an antique Hamilton watch (working!) that belonged to my grandmother. It is engraved on the back with the date of 1927. It is very small - about 1 1/4" and may be a lapel watch as it only has one lug. Below are the details of what I found inside and out:
Inside:
2238695
987
17 jewels
Inside back cover:
Hamilton Watch Co. Fahy's

I also found many hand written "writings" on the inside of the back cover. They were very small. Below are some (not all) of what I could :make out:
NP 12/75
302 M (in a circle)
F11-1947-0
1-2-76-0
ME 152
ME 156
