    This is a Hamilton QTC (Quartz Time Computer) model 999 (the 573
    indicates the manufacturing date...May of 1973). This model, with a single demand button, gave the time
    only...hours and minutes, switching to running seconds. This is
    relatively uncommon watch; this same module is also found in
    the Pulsar P2 models (such as the stainless P2 "Astronaut" that shows
    up briefly at the beginning of the James Bond film "Live and Let Die",
    released in 1973). The case and bracelet are done in 14K RGP (Rolled
    GoldPlate), a process that mechanically bonds the gold layer to the
    base metal, instead of using an electric current to deposit the
    precious metal. The Hamiltons were superceded only by the Pulsars and
    Omegas as high-end LED watches. Production was discontinued in 1975.
