Thanks for posting that interesting photo. Is there a link you would have to an ebay auction so that we could look at other photo's of the watch. Also, might you know if it is solid gold or gold filled? The dial and the jewel count (22?) suggests a more modern Hamilton (60's), however on first glance, I don't really have a clue. I have Rene Rondeau's excellent guide: Hamilton Wristwatches, A Collectors Guide at home. This book has a catalog image of every Hamilton produced. I will search for this watch this evening.

Option 2 is to email this image to Rene and see if he could provide us with information.

My long term goal, of course, is to make a case to Rene that he should be a member of the IHC and participate in this and other forums.

My only clue is the style of "H" on the dial which if memory serves is they began to use in mid-fifties.

The auction could prove interesting as it's an unusual style. I've increased the movement image size and turned it as well. Looks like a Grade 770 with 22-Jewels, Adjusted and USA markings.

Hope that gets us closer to figuring it out!

Hamilton introduced the 22 Jewel, 770 movement in 1955, and it is described as "...a very high-quality movement which features 22-jewels and Incablock shockproofing. It was manufactured until the end of American production in 1969.

This watch is called the Lindsay, and it appeared in the Hamilton Catalog for 1962. It was sold for only a few years. Production numbers are not known.
