I agree Rene, you would think the longer you were there, the better the award.

Here are two additional Hamilton electric clocks. The one on the left has a Vantage dial and the one on the right has a Hamilton dial. I live in Lancaster and purchased these from two different former Hamilton employees twenty plus years ago. I have seen a couple of other ones over the years.

Technically this isn't a Hamilton electric desk clock but the person I purchased it from told me that he did use it for a short time as a desk clock when he worked at Hamilton. It's actually a Hamilton military clock with a 505 electric movement. The body of the clock is made out of machined aluminum and it has a see-through back. He told me that he thought it was a prototype and he didn't think that it ever went into production. The second hand is not correct, he added the second hand when he used it as a desk clock. Again all of this was back in the 1990's long before any sites like this existed. Maybe someone out there can help fill in the details about this clock. I would appreciate learning more about it.

Here is a view of the back of the clock. It has a very heavy screw on back with a see-through crystal.

Forget the clocks, check out that Ventura museum display in the background! :o

Welcome to the forum — care to show us more of your treasures? I, for one, would love to see them. . . .
