Holy smokes! It looks new! You should take closeup photos of the mechanics and the details because it's the condition and those details that'll sell the piece.

Hi :)
I'm new at this and was wondering if there may be a free minute if you have it, to consider looking at just a couple of photos of antique necklaces I have and maybe answering just a couple of questions I have ? Thank you , Sarah.

There are some forums, it's been a long time since I've been real active, but two I used were woodcentral.com and forums.woodnet.net.

I'm not sure how much I'll be adding, it's been a while since I've been actively acquiring. At some point I'll get more active again, in the meantime a club might be a good idea. I'll try to put more info out than I've currently got in my explanations.

I'm a watch novice. How old is this watch?
3 years ago
Like
Reply
I have to open the case to get the usable serial number, but I'll have to take to a jeweler for new battery install.
This is the text from my Grand Pa's note:
This watch is 10k gold 1-22-07
This Hamilton watch was given to me by my Wife Frances in 1970. She purchased it at Shaners jewelry store in Astoria, OR.
To change the battery the jeweler must reove the crystal front side, the back does not come off.
Fred Meyer jeweler said it is not being made anymore is worth $400.00
a new battery was installed 01-09-07

Very nice! Looks like the dial is in very good condition, which is not always the case in a watch of this age and adds to the value.

There are three images if this watch. The third image is different from the first two. The third image shows a different watch. It's the third image that I like and would like to add to my collection as a "want".

After doing some research on the web, it appears these are all images of a Hamilton Barrel watch having slightly different case designs. The third image is of a rare version of the Barrel, made only in 1931, with engraving on the face of the case and a dial with a square register for the seconds bit.
