This is the latest addition to my collection that I found at Calgary Chapter 145's Watch and Clock Show last Sunday. It's a Hamilton Ball 18 size, 23 jewel, Serial number 644304. Only 100 of these watches were manufactured in 1911, this is the fourth one in the run. Does any of our members know of other serial numbers from this run?

Wow, Nice find Larry. That's definately a tough one to locate. I may have a couple of serial numbers, but will have to dig.
