Hi all again.

I've come unstuck again I'm afraid, so here is today's teaser (or two). Been whole way through photo thread 3 times now.

I've narrowed the last one down to 2-3 watches, but can't work out which one it is.

Thanks for the help. Learning something new every day.

It is very time consuming to check multiple watches unless you say what material the case is made from, whether it's 14k gold filled, 10k gold filled, 10k RGP, etc. If you use this link, viewtopic.php?f=41&t=744 it is easiest to use the Models by Bezel Shape/Case Material links.

The first one looks like a ladies model. On that same page, below all the annual catalog links is a link for Just the Ladies' Models. You may find it in there.

1st one is not a factory Hamilton. Likely a Hamilton movement inside, but everything else is aftermarket.

The first one is an aftermarket case. These were available from wholesale catalogs. Many times a watch with a worn out case, but a good movement would be taken in trade, then the movement refurbished, new dial installed, and placed in a non-factory case such as these and re-sold through discount and wholesale catalogs.

The second watch is a Whitman from 1940. Fairly uncommon watch, it was only available for a year or two.

Thank you all so much. Fabulous link btw - don't know how I missed that thread completely. I've just been plodding through the master photo thread every time. I was thinking wouldn't it be useful to have them split by case type, shape, year, etc. Doh!

I should be better at identifying them now, and will try not to bother you :)

Bryan - thank you for the Whitman suggestion. I was thinking it was a Clark or yorktiwn until then.

Thanks again,
Andrew
