Age of my Hamilton Ventura

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I hope that someone could please help me with dating my Hamilton Ventura watch. I've had a look through the pinned Dating Vintage Watches post, but couldn't find anything on Hamilton's, so apologies if I missed it!

I've had my Hamilton Ventura watch for around 3 years now (having had it shipped over from Hawaii), and I'm just curious as to how old it might be, along with a possible value. I know that it's not a particularly rare watch, but I'm just curious.

The photographs show that it's a Registered Edition with a 6251A code. I've asked Hamilton my questions but they didn't respond.

Many thanks for your help.

Dear @JonClay it seems that the Hamilton "Registered Editions" story (1983-1999) is quite interesting, with a number of Hamilton classics being given the reissued Registered Edition "treatment."  Ironically, the Registered Edition Ventura ultimately outsold all the other Hamilton Registered Edition watches put together, having gained an extra popularity boost after it featured in the film, "Men in Black."

Here are some pictures of a Hamilton Registered Edition Ventura, with the same "6251A" designation on the back as your own watch, dating to 2001 (pics from assets.catawiki.nl):
