    Hilton ladies 17 jewel vintage wrist watch with 25 stones made in Italy. No idea where I got this but am very interested in its origin and year it was made. I have looked through old catalogs and not found one that matches. Also can not find a serial number. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Welcome to CW!

      I did an image search for a 'Hilton' ladies wristwatch. I know that an abbreviation for the word Hamilton is often spelled H'ilton so perhaps you were confused. Also I notice that there are two different bracelet side designs on the watch in your photo?

      Will you please replace picture 1 with a picture showing that view in it’s entirety….the name of company is only partially shown….likely important info.

      Hello again LittleLiza14, (cute name, btw).
      I did a quick Google search and found that Hilton watches are shown and company documented- the info about the company is not very complimentary….FTC was involved over false advertising. The name Hilton on the watch makes it appear that Hilton was the manufacturer but in actuality, Hilton was just the distributor. Additionally, company stated “Swiss made” even though they were actually made in Hong Kong.
      All that said, the watch is lovely as a piece of costume jewelry (most likely) and I would be happy to wear it on occasion as a pretty bracelet.

      With more research, maybe you will find your exact model.
      Other CW members will likely be of more help than I am since I only had a brief time to do any checking for you….I’m glad I did since I learned some “stuff”….now if I can only retain it. ;^)

      LittleLiza14, look closely on the back side of the watch band and the clasp for any tiny initials and numbers….use a magnifying glass or make a photo and enlarge it since that info will be tiny.
