Hamilton Zone watches ladies and RR "Click" to Login or Register 
posted
Does anyone have any interest or information to share on Hamilton ZONE watches? I have been collecting them for sometime, including the rare Transcontinental and have been looking for one of the ladies versions. Has anyone seen one? A ladies Cross Country that is?

As many of you know, the Time Zone watchs were one of Hamiltons early attempts at marketing wrist watches to Railroad personell.

I love this one as I have the original renderings of the watch from Richard Arbib.

Any help for research appreciated.

Here is the front of the Hamilton ETA movement from the the 1956 era of the CROSS COUNTRY.

Anyone know what calibre these things are?

I spoke to Bruce Shawkey and he is trying to track it down.

And check out the other markings on the tiop..
