    WOW Ryan you have a real gem! I see only an estimated 350 were made. 17 jewel swiss movement with date window, black dial, gold filled case, manufactured in 1960. What more do you need to know?

    Wayne, Thaks for the info..

    I have slighlty edited you post to delte the reference to speicific value.

    I understand that move is afoot to allow us to discuss general valuations but as of now, unless I did not receve the memo, we cannot discuss this...

    I love those watches though!

    thank you for the info wayne. do you think 1200-1800 is realistic? i saw a dealer making refernce to this watch and he was saying 4000-5000. that seems very high and way above the book value. also the original band is broken (possibly fixable) but the pins are siezed and the band my have to cut off to remove the pins. does original band play any part in value? if so to what degree? the back of case has also been inscribed. does this affect value? thank you for any info! ryan

    I too would like to apoligze Mr. Hess for putting a value up. Seems like I started the whole shabang. Now with that done, Ryan sometimes an original band will make a difference to a true collector who likes everything orignal. As for it being engraved on the back, again it all depends on the collector, some don't like it, others don't mind since it is never seen when worn. But either way the watch is very rare so a true collector will live with it just to get a prime example. Take care.

    The K475 seems to have appeared in only one Hamilton watch catalog - that for 1960/61, on page 20, along with that other star item the T403. Also in that catalog was the Flight I.

    Truly a great year.
