The Cyril was introduced in 1955 and produced for three years. It's unique among Hamiltons in that it came with a leather and metal bracelet. It's pretty rare to see one with it's original bracelet but I just so happened to find one the other day.
The Cyril is a relatively small watch. It's only about 25mm wide by 36mm long and it tucks it's 8/0 sized 17 jewel movement compactly into it's case. You'll find either a 747 or a 730 movement inside, as the Cyril was produced when Hamilton upgraded the 747 into the 730.
The case is 10K yellow gold filled and it's has a stainless steel back. The dial is sterling silver with 18K applied gold numerals.
I think it sometimes looks a little odd with a strap but the bracelet really makes a statement.
