    I have a gold Hamilton wrist watch -- movement #H50521 -- that I bought a couple of years ago online and had supposedly tested as base metal. I just got around to opening it to see inside and was pleasantly surprised to find the back marked 14k Solid Gold. In looking at it more closely, the case back appears to be two pieces. The exterior could be stainless or another metal not gold. The case is two tone. I'm attaching photos. Is it possible that the case is half solid gold and half base metal?

    I am pretty sure HAMILTON NEVER made two tone cases
    I am also sure they made 14Kt gold cases.
    I suspect your whole case is 14Kt gold
    ENJOY

    If you could show us better photos of what you have, it would help. In that era Hamilton had very characteristic markings in the case backs.
