USMC Hamilton "Click" to Login or Register

I thought I would show my Hamilton USMC wrist watch from the Korean war era. Has the Grade 747 in it. The only thing I can fault it on is the seconds hand, Hamilton seconds hand for the Grade 747 and 987A are like my US Navy 987A posted some time back.

Thanks for re-posting, that is very perfect. The simple designs last forever.

These are great little watches. Hard to find with decent cases. Yours looks real nice.

I'm a new member, and this post prompted my first. I've had the Hamilton pictured below for quite a while and have wondered about the extra engraving on the case back. Some years ago I came across this discussion on MWR, which shows a Hamilton 747 with the same markings but does not mention them. Any ideas?

Welcome to the forum, thanks for posting.
Dad was 26 yrs USMC (1941-1967) but unfortunately did not save any watches.
HAM is a great collectable.

Thanks, Mike. My father enlisted in the Marine Corps after Pearl Harbor but wound up in the Navy (not sure how that happened) as a frogman. One of my uncles enlisted with him and, like your dad, was a career Marine.
