The influence of Hamilton Watch Company on American styling can be seen everywhere: In "Pearl Harbor" the heroes were sporting Hamilton WWII watches; in "Men in Black" the heroes flashed Hamilton electric "Venturas." Nearly every period movie features a dashing leading man with a Hamilton watch peeking from under his sleeve or vest pocket. Underappreciated talents such as Richard Arbib — who designed the majority of Hamilton's asymmetrical models — dreamed and developed watches so breathtakingly handsome on the wrist that they are fought after to this day.

Consider this Mid-Century Hamilton with its clean, platinum-tone dial highlighted by bar markers, matching imperially slim baton hands with sub-seconds register.

Its Minimalist, yellow gold-tone and stainless steel case measures 35mm x 28mm square. It certainly passes the "porridge test": not too big, not too small — just right!

A 17-ruby-jeweled manual-wind movement is as high grade is anything you'd find today; an excellent time keeper that has that "tuxedo-and-highball" wrist stance "Dino and the Chairman of the Board" so gloriously exemplified in the original "Ocean's Eleven."

It's the perfect Town & Country timepiece to wear to the country club, play golf or to use as a classy distraction while you're trying that important case. A clean "Breakfast at Tiffany's" look that is so sought after today, combined with the engineering prowess of America's premier watch house make for an unbeatable combination.

We've taken the liberty of completely cleaning, oiling and calibrating the special timepiece so that it keeps time as it was originally intended. Also, we've fitted the watch with a new peanut leather strap with matching gold-tone buckle.

It's the perfect gift to spoil yourself or loved one.
