Wow..... Surprise very rare Hamilton find!
Was at the thrift today and saw these two pocketwatch movements sitting on top of this leather bag, clearly old as well. At first I thought nothing of it because it was two junky looking ladies movements. For $5 though I gave it a shot, at first a common Hampden Diadem. But then the Hamilton.... I looked it up and had never seen a ladies movement worth so much before. Sure, mine is pretty dirty but it's green gunk from inside the leather bag, I don't see any rust. The balance wheel moves but it doesn't run. Is it missing anything? does anyone think it is serviceable? I would LOVE to get this up and running in a wrist case. Truly a great find for $5 especially since I almost passed up on it.
