The 1948 Hamilton Dyson is a surprisingly common watch. It was produced for four years and Hamilton must have sold a gazillion of them based on how frequently you see them for sale.
Behind the white finished sterling silver dial is a 17 jewel 8/0 sized 747 movement. The case is 14k yellow gold filled and the tops of the lugs are prone to wear through.
I've had the opportunity to restore several Dysons - as when they're in poor shape they tend to be very inexpensive. If I recall correctly, I purchased the project watch below for about $25.
After cleaning the dial, overhauling the movement and installing a new glass crystal and leather strap, this Dyson was ready for wrist time.
Thanks for visiting my vintage Hamilton watch blog. I like to restore US-made Hamilton wrist watches back to their original glory and share my experiences with other enthusiasts.
