this is from oct 1969. this is the last ad Hamilton ran in nat. geo. before going under. it has been my pleasure to post all of them and I hope everyone enjoys looking at them as much as I do. my only regret is that there were not enough pocket watches but that is how the market went.

It's been a pleasure to look at all those ads.

Not only the excellence in watchmaking, Hamilton excelled in their advertising.

What a fascinating journey!

I have always enjoyed advertising from several standpoints. It mirrors our culture uniquely, in an artistic and highly creative way it tells us what people were wearing, what they were involved in and even what they were thinking about at any given time.

Thanks a million Joe, this is a wonderful resource.

Whatever agency they used for the final five or so years worth of ads had a very innovative approach. I really love the early to mid 60s era in advertising. There was a graphic revolution happening back then.

Thank you very much, Joe, for taking your valuable time to post all of these ads for us!

It is most interesting to see the changes that occurred during those years reflected in Hamilton's advertising. Styling, both of the watches and print media, and the cultural mores in place at any given time come through in those ads. Like a snapshot of life condensed in an image. Wonderful!
