From the early 1930s (recently restored). Photos just taken tonight.
I haven't opened it yet (I need to buy a case opening knife), but I understand from the seller and Hamilton ads that it was equipped with the 17-jewel 987 movement. This one was recently serviced, too.Hi -
Nice! Of course, such pictures lead me to ask what's inside...
Thanks, Gator. :thanksTom, here is the information on your watch:

http://vintagewatch.info is the best place for information on the classic Hamilton wristwatches of 1922-1936.
Hope this helps,
Congrats, John. I'm anxious to see your photos. I'm still waiting for mine. I hope I get it by Friday. :think:Hi -
Just got the Wilshire.
Watch sizes sure have changed.
The timing was perfect: this evening we're celebrating 20 years of where I work, and I get a silver pin for 10 years' of putting up with my bosses and earning them indecent amounts of money. Might not mean much for most here, but in the corporate world here in Germany it's a solid sign of approval and of belonging to the inside crowd to allow you to wear the company logo with your suit...it's a transition from "one of the employees" to "one of us".
The Wilshire will be worn tonight for the occasion. Is everything I had hoped for, and photos will come during the holiday period when I come up to breath...
