Hamilton Cross Country
This is a very interesting Hamilton Cross Country watch in great shape. It winds, sets, and runs great, and keeps excellent time.
It was introduced in 1956, and the early models had the Rare Illinois Movements (Hamilton bought the Illinois Watch Company), and was marketed to business travelers. Times can be read in each time zone simultaneously making it unnecessary to change the time when a time zone is crossed . The market was too small, however, so sales were slow, making the watch quite rare. The hour hand on this example is set to the Central Time Zone, but can be moved to any time zone requested (the hand must be removed, and re-positioned). If the purchaser of this fine watch would like the hour hand moved to a different time zone, this can be done before shipping.
