    A couple pictures from some factory files that I thought may be of interest to some of those on this forum.

    Sorry, I thought the file name would show. The picture is of John Van Horn, who was the Director of Research and Development at Hamilton during the design and launch of the Electric Watch.

    Hey Rhett. A question... is the B&W photo of prototypes from the Hamiltons factory or from Arbib's stuff?

    Jeff,

    The photos came to me from Art Zimmerla, who I believe obtained them either directly or indirectly from the factory.
