Based on feedback from my last post, folks don't mind seeing blog updates of interesting models, even if they've been documented before. So here's another cool watch to show you.
It's a 1961 Sherwood R. Although it was made for two years, you don't come across Sherwood models too ofter.
There are several Sherwood models from 1961 and 1962 and what makes them interesting is they feature wooden dials. Actually the dial is a blend of a wood veneer on a metal substrate. The wood is so thin that it was very problematic to meet Hamilton's quality standards and they dropped the concept after 1962.
The Sherwood R can in a solid 14K gold case and featured American walnut.
