1970’s Hamilton electronic with caliber 702

Round gray dial surrounded with bezel. Inside the dial comes a black circle with baton marking each hour. On the edge, you have a curve giving an optic of dial deepness. On the logo comes “Hamilton” at 12 o’clock and “electronic” at 6 o’clock. It is a “Swiss” model. The watch come with baton hands and indirect second hand. Luminous on hands are good. At 3 o’clock, you have one window for the day and date. The crown has the “Hamilton” logo. It is a stainless steel screwed back case with engraved inside “Hamilton Watch Co – Swiss”. It has an electronic movement with caliber 702 and 7 jewels. The watch comes with a stainless steel bracelet with double clasp buckle. Just serviced with new battery. This watch for me represents exactly what my philosophy is about vintage watches: “Everybody should be able to afford a beautiful vintage watch at an affordable price and this one is.

History

The company was founded in 1892 and in 1900; over 50% of the population had a watch from Hamilton Watch Co in Lancaster, PA. In 1915, Hamilton started the production of the caliber 986. During the art deco period, Hamilton had tremendous success with the “Coronado”, “Spur” and “Piping Rock”. Then came the 982 calibre in the 1930’s and the famous caliber 500. In 1937, the company supplied the US army. In 1966, Hamilton took over Buren watch. In 1969, it stopped to produce mechanical watch in the US. Then came the revolutionary “Pulsar”. Today, the company is own by the Swatch Group.
