One for Rene

So very early battery conversations. This project must have been top secret, as no one was to know.

I’m amazed to read that Hamilton’s investigation of battery powered watches began as early as March, 1946. Is this a new revelation, or does this memo contribute anything new to our knowledge of Hamilton’s development of electronic wrist watch movements?

While it's great fun to see those, they don't really add to what was already known about this extremely early stage in Hamilton's Electric watch research. The reports for Project 5001, referenced in the memo, are in the NAWCC library and they cover the full gamut of the Fillinger clock.

I'm wondering if they got wind of Elgin's that early ? I don't think they did due to the reaction in 1952 but its possible they worked out elgin may have been working on a battery that early.
