Well my streak of luck on Ebay hasn't ended yet. I got this one in the mail a couple days ago and just finished working on it. It is a 17j Hamilton in white gold plate and its either a Gary or Thinline model, I don't know which. It was described as "ladies" and not working plus its glass was badly cracked. Upon receipt I was pleased to find it was running strong and was white gold plated and not yellow as it appeared in the pictures. I ditched the cracked glass and ordered a new one, however in my haste I got the wrong one. The size was good but it had diamond beveling on the inside. Its not original but its a mistake I don't mind and actually think it matches nicely. I swapped out the old dirty expansion band for a semi-expandable band for now. I initially planned on flipping this one but it is growing on me so it may be a keeper. Here are the finished pics:

Haha no it is a mens. it is either a Thinline or Gary model. It was listed as a womens watch by mistake or ignorance, which was why nobody else bid. Lucky me
Thanks

Yeah I've had quite the streak of mislabeled watch scores the last two weeks. An auction for the same model just ended for about $150 on ebay, ironically the seller was about 5 miles from me.
