Hamilton Stainless Steel Electronic ref: 5004 c. 1971



Straight out of the 1971 Hamiton watch catalog, this beauty shows just how much they put into their forward thinking in modern design.  So retro, yet so now, Hamilton's Electronic series meant no winding and no shaking to keep it running.  WAIT, now hold on a minute, no no no, this is not a quartz watch.  Its a fully mechanical movement, simply powered by a battery.  Check out the movment picture above.  It's a marvel.
