    Woohoo, I'm on a roll finding pocket watches in my attic! ;)
    In another box I found this Hamilton 17 Jewels Pocket Watch. And it runs!
    Still can't seem to find much information on this specific model, seems there's so many variations! Does anyone know anything about this, like, when was it made?

      Hey Dave! Thanks for the info! Just the serial number is 816792. Is that different than the 814792?

      Thank you! :)
      What are all those things scribbled in the inside of the case cover?
