  1. I have a square Hamilton purchased and engraved in June 1968. Ideas about where I might get it valued?

    1. Value depends on what it is and it's condition. You can send me a photo at my email address (found when you "click here" above my photo) or by contacting me through Etsy.

  2. Would you have a date changer (date drive wheel) caliber 64 for a vintage Hamilton watch, 1960's I think? It may be part #a/4637 or eta ref #2472.

    Thanks.

    1. No, but I'm sure any parts house (Casker, Ofrei, Barton and Chase, J Borel, etc) would be able to hook you up.

  3. Is a 1965 t-480 rare?

    1. Depends on what you mean by rare. On the one hand, it was made for several years. On the other hand, I've never seen one. There are lots of watches I've never seen though - are they all rare?

  4. Where is the K475? Did I miss you listing it?

    1. I haven't done a K475 yet. That's a rare bird... and super expensive.

  5. Hello sir, I am currently trying to figure out which older Hamilton Thinomatic I am an owner of. It was given to my great grandfather for his retirement from the company he worked for. It is engraved on the back in 1964 and is 14K gold. May I please have contact information for you so I might send you some detailed photos so I can learn more about this watch. Never interested in selling, too much connection for me to do that. Thank you for any help you may offer.

  7. Hi - I just purchased a watch at an auction and was told it's a sea beach III. I'm not seeing that on your website. Does that model exist?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes, it was made in 1968. It's a stainless steel watch with a radial finished dial and a thin silver chapter ring around the perimeter. It's not on my website because I haven't restored one yet. Email me if you'd like me to take it on for you.

  8. hello. i purchased a Hamilton dateline. it has selfwinding written on the dial. i don't see it on your site though. is this made in 1968?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If it says "Selfwinding" on the dial then it's likely a 1970's model. Prior to the 1970's automatics had "Automatic" or "Thin-o-matic" on the dial.
