1948 Dennis

The Hamilton Dennis was introduced in 1948 and produced for four years.  It's very similar to a few other models from the same period... like the Alan and Boulton.

The Dennis came in a 10K gold filled case with a sterling silver dial with solid 18K gold numerals.

Behind the dial is a 14/0 sized, 17 jewel 980 movement.

One odd thing about the Dennis is that it takes a narrower strap than other models... it's 14mm by today's standards.  For today's man, I think a 14mm long strap is the best option.

Here's an example of a Dennis that I restored last year for a friend of mine named... you guessed it - Dennis!

  1. Just won a Dennis on a charity auction site. It needs cleaning and a service. I’m happy to have found one because one of my wife’s brothers is named Dennis!
