Hamilton have recently reissued the W10 and for a very good reason. This example was the last of the mechanically wound military wristwatches by Hamilton that hasn’t changed since WWII. This example dates from 1973 and has a monocoque case design which means the movement is accessed through the front unlike its reissue. It has a hacking seconds movement, important for synchronising watches when on missions. The watch  measures 37.5mm with 19mm lugs, and houses a seventeen jewel Caliber 649 which is based on the ETA 2750. The case appears untouched. The dial and hands are in excellent vintage condition showing a lovely custard lume in the indexes and hands. The watch has been fully serviced and is keeping good time.The watch comes paired on a nice high quality green perlon strap. Great for those weekend getaways.
