Hamilton Dodson Automatic

Today I'm wearing my Hamilton Dodson automatic (model number H27415733.) It's dressier than the watches I normally wear, and I feel a little weird wearing it in the daytime during the Summer, but I'm getting down to a handful of watches and had to pick something. It's actually pretty big for a dress watch at 36mm wide and 41mm long, and the height of the case with the oversized, rounded "steps" gives it real wrist presence. The dial is also very attractive, certainly not too busy, with "exploding" numerals and an inset small seconds dial. It's also very nice to see a date wheel with a black background, as a white background would be out of place here. The movement is a very reliable and smooth ETA 2895-2 which is used in numerous watches including Breitling, TAG Heuer, Glycine and other Hamilton models.

Very beautiful. Similar to a Vacheron 1912.
