Vintage Hamilton Watch Discussion Forum
Certainly more than 3; I've owned at least half a dozen over the years and have seen several others. I've never found any documentation for them, unfortunately. They are something of a mystery, perhaps experimental and not actually marketed. But if so, a pretty good number of test pieces were made since they keep turning up. I have one on my workbench right now.
While I have not owned any of the Electrics ones I do have two of the Accutron /Bulova type, the one on the left is a standard 214 movement & the one on the right is what’s call a space view dial showing the 214 movement . While both say Bulova Watch Company the one on the left also has made in Germany on the base, plus they don’t have any other marking you find on a Accutron like a date code M1 for 1961. Now as I recall I’ve seen that same case with an Accutron movement inside so if you ask me I put these in the same category as jobbers different, fun to collect but not factory issued.

Old thread I know but couldn't really find much info on this odd ball. That'll teach me to impulse buy late at night. I do like the look though.

Mark, those tie pins & tacks are very interesting. They must have been part of a quarter century club program, since we know Hamilton gave employees a watch after a certain amount of time - 15 years perhaps?
