This Hamilton GS watch is in lovely unrestored condition. The dial is crisp; the hands are original; although the Second hand has been repainted. The original White paint can be seen, below the beautifully faded pale Orange.

The matt black dial has a large luminous inverted triangle marking the noon position; large luminous blocks are marking the other quarter hours and smaller luminous dots for the remainder of the numbers. The dial also has full Arabic numbers (apart from the 12) printed in white.

The Tritium hour markers are “grubby” but they still glow after exposure to strong sunlight.

The dial is also printed with “G.S.” above the “6” indicating that this watch was made for the British Military General Service division.

The case and crown are untouched and show only light scratching from daily wear. All the edges to the case are nice and crisp, indicating it has never been polished. The lugs and strap bars are in good shape too.

The movement is a Hamilton Cal. S76S with 17 jewels. It is jewelled to the centre wheel and has a direct drive sweep seconds hand. The movement is protected from magnetic influences by a Faraday cage comprising a soft iron movement ring, removable cover, and an extra thick dial.

The screw-down case back has some deeper scratches to it.

The case back is engraved with the usual information about the watch. To the centre is engraved the Hamilton “H” with Troicalized and 75003-3. Above the “H” is engraved 150oE which indicates the magnetic shield exceeds 150 Oersted. Finally, around the edge is engraved “Shockproof, Anti-Magnetic, Waterproof” and “Temperature Compensated”.
