The 1937 Hamilton Sidney echos many design details of the 1930's. Produced through 1940, the Sidney features a stepped case that to me looks like folded angels wings.
Two dial choices were available, the AGN dial shown in the ad above or a black enamel dial. Like most models, the enamel dial is very striking and the Sidney dial is actually a two-tone white / butler finished pattern.
The 10K gold filled case came only in yellow. It's very prone to wear through to the top of the bezel near the corners of the crystal. The edges of the case back can also exhibit wear.
The Sidney is a sharp looking watch, especially in a wear-free case.
