That was odd... I tried to add a comment to Dave's list that the Altair was a good addition, but I this does not seem to be working. Odd.. LOL

I'm new to this forum, but a long time Hamilton collector. I tried, but I could not trim my list down to 10, so these are my favorite 12:

1. Byrd
2. Wilkinson
3. Mt. Vernon
4. Bentley
5. Coronado
6. Pinehurst
7. Flintridge
8. Cambridge
9. Glendale
10. Ventura
11. Flight (either one)
12. T403

There are so many, so that the following list of 11 is limited only to those offered before World War II:

Meadowbrook
Piping Rock
Coronado
Langley
Whitney
Putnam
Seckron (D89 dial)
Bagley (O149 dial)
Coral Winthrop
Russell (O151 dial)
Judson (O81 dial)
As this thread seems to be revived: here’s my list:

Spur
Piping Rock
Pacermatic
T-403
Otis
Blade (wgf)
Seckron
K-454 “Sputnik”
Contour
K-475

Regards

Martin
