Hamilton Wristwatches: A Reference Guide - $49.95

Hamilton Wristwatches: A Reference Guide. 226 pages. Illustrated with nearly 900 Hamilton watches produced between 1917-1969. Completely indexed and with "Watch Finder" tables to help you identify any given model. Two years in the making, it's the first Hamilton identification book to be published in 17 years, since René Rondeau's 1999 book on mechanical Hamilton watches. The new book contains about 20 previously unknown models or model versions that have come to light through the efforts of dedicated Hamilton collectors who have shared their discoveries through articles and online discussion forums. These include The 1917 0-size "Cushion," the 18kt gold "Rectangular," the "Vancott," and the "Model A" to name a few. Also, 19 "Hamilton-Illinois" models made in the mid 1950s are identified, in addition to the so-called "M-Series" watches made in the early 1960s. Perhaps most importantly, quality of the nearly 900 watch images has been greatly improved compared with Rondeau's book thanks to advancements in digital imaging during the past 17 years.
