    My best is guess is that it may be a "Scott" from around 1935. This according to Shugart, et. al. in the "Complete Price Guide to Watches", 2010 edition, page 824. Good luck.

    There's something odd about that dial with no sub-second post showing but the dial design seems to indicate it was intended for a watch with the sub-second. I think it best to see a good clear photo of the movement & the inside of the case back.

    Thank you for your responses. I found out through another source that it is a "Scott" model w/ a special order luminous dial. I was also told that the hands and bracelet were not original to the watch.

    The hands are a bit unusual, but I don't know enough about Hamilton wrist watches to comment on their originality. That type of band that it has presently was probably not available until the sixties, or
    ~20 years after the watch was made.

    If its a 'Scott' from the early-mid 1930's, it should have a 987 movement in the watch from that era. The 987 had a sub-second feature and I'm not seeing it on that watch which makes me think either the dial is incorrect or the movement has been replaced.

    Where don't you see a subseconds dial, it is the rectangular part just below the cannon pinion. To me the watch looks more 1940's.

    I see the dial that indicates a sub-second hand but i'm not seeing a sub-second hand or a hole for the pinion. Granted its hard to tell from that photo. There are also a couple of good photos of the '33 Scott over on the VWF forum

    It's a Scott with a bad redial and wrong hands.
