These are really interesting!

As Dr. Bill Hansen pointed out in an earlier post in this topic...


"We know that few, very few Hamilton ovals were produced. The known records suggest that some were solid gold, some gold filled. Some had engraved bezels, and some had plain bezels. A scant few were two tones. Rumor has it that one or a few were made in Platinum. Curiously, some had engraved lugs, and some had plain or unengraved lugs."


With Charles Sweigart's watch we are close to having "one-of-each" variation (check the images on both pages) for guys like Tony and I to envy... and envy we do!

Thanks Charles!

Lindell
