I was encouraged by our fearless Leader to give the Gallery a try. If things go well, I will attach a photograph or two of an elusive Hamilton watch from 1961. This is the 14K Gold Flight I. While it appears to be one of the Hamilton Electric Watches of that era, it is actually a manual wind watch, with the 22 Jewel 770 Hamilton movement. The Flight II, produced that same year, is a gold filled version. The Flight I is typically found with a silver dial and brown cross, as pictured, while the Flight II was produced with a "champagne" dial, and a less common silver dial. I hope a picture of all three Flight's are also attaches. All the Best

Here is another example of the Hamilton Flight I. It is one of the most desirable 1960's Hamilton wrist watches.
