    Greetings to all, and forgive me if I leave out something of consequence in this post. I have a Hamilton 873 self-winding watch which I cannot further identify. It has "Swiss" stamped on the movement as well, but no other identifying information. I suspect it is an ETA movement, but without further information I have no way to locate a stem for the movement, and potentially any other parts it might require once I tear it down. I am hoping this brain trust can enlighten me so I can move forward.

    Kindly,

    David

    ETA 2834? Looks like something is stamped right under the balance rim.

    I was mistaken about the watch in that I inverted the numbers. It is a Hamilton 837 and not an 873. It appears to be an ETA (self-winding) movement. I am looking for the proper stem and crown for this 837. Many thanks to all.

    Kindly,

    David
