1960’s Hamilton Panda Dial ChronographJuly 7, 2023 8:31 pm
This 1960’s Hamilton is exemplifies the era with a patinated white dial and striking black “panda” sub dials. The 7730 Valjoux movement has a 30 minute chronograph function which starts, stops, and resets beautifully. The crown is unsigned which is correct for this model. Solid stainless steel case is thick and original bevels are visible. The case has likely seen a polish at some point in the past. The exterior of the dial near the rehaut has some damage likely due to water or lack of a crystal at some point. The tachymeter is blurred and smudged at some points. There is also some minor discoloration to the dial, and the original lume plots have darkened to a deep brownish black. The movement remains in pristine condition, runs strong and has been serviced recently.
