  1. Nothing odd about a 1970’s Hamilton with a one piece case, as described above. Came with W10 issue markings and 6BB too. CWC also made a similar cased watch. Screw back military watches from the end of WW2 onwards, known as WWW’s, were made by 12 companies, of which Hamilton wasn’t one. These are known as the dirty dozen. Later watches in the tonneau one piece case, discussed above, arrived in the 1970’s, to be replaced by quartz watches in the 1980’s, made by CWC and Precista. That’s a very brief summary and doesn’t cover all British issued watches e.g. I haven’t touched on divers watches, chronographs etc. Foggy
  2. Nice watch, but not military. Foggy
  3. Yes. For example, Hamilton 6B RAF issue. Then there is also the issued chrono. Both screw-back. Foggy
  4. The 2824-2 movement was introduced in 1982, so that is the earliest date for your watch. Stylistically it also looks 1980’s. Excellent paintings, Vinayak - you have a real talent there. Regards Foggy
  5. Just enjoy it. The movement in these are pretty straightforward, so other independent watchmakers would be able to service it assuming no difficult to find parts are needed. if you want the bracelet sorting, though, Seth is the man. Foggy
  6. Which means the bracelet was made in the second quarter of 1963 (or at least the clasp was). So either a later bracelet or a replaced later clasp. Foggy
  7. 57 is the number of the bracelet end pieces, not the year. Cant tell from the pics, but the bracelet clasp may have the production quarter and year on it. It looks like it might be 2 63 which would suggest the bracelet is later than the watch head. Foggy
  8. It could be a little earlier. The only way to get a truly accurate date is for somebody to open the case back, as inside will be the quarter and year of production. Eg iii.56 for third quarter of 1956. For UK bracelet restoration , google Seth the watch dealer. Comes highly recommended when it comes to these Rolex bracelets. Foggy
  9. Looks in decent order, so I’d advise a movement service, if you don’t know when last done, and a polish of the acrylic glass. Foggy
  10. It dates from the mid 1930’s. Foggy
  11. With that serial number i’d Say 1958. Foggy
  12. Looks fine. Manual wind Oyster. If you remove the bracelet, there will be numbers between the lugs with the model reference number and serial number. That will enable accurate dating of your watch. Foggy
  13. It’s not a chronometer, but it is a chronograph ;-) Foggy
  14. Foggy


    Yes, that’s fine for a ladies model from that period. Foggy
  15. Not true. I know a commercial sat diver and his work watch is a Seadweller. Foggy
