1968 Hamilton Thinline 5003

Serviced May 2019, Swiss made manual wind movement, very good silver dial with light patina, silver applied hour markers, hand polished stainless steel case, acrylic crystal, unworn leather strap, alloy mainspring.

Made for four years from 1968 through 1971, the Hamilton Thinline 5003 was one of the few models to be produced in the United States as well as Switzerland after Hamilton moved production there in 1969. This watch comes with a Swiss (Buren) made manual wind 639 caliber movement. The case is stamped with the Lancaster, PA mark. The dial is in very good condition with light, honest patina. The applied silver markers are in good condition and the painted minute track is excellent. The paint for the sunken sub seconds dial is excellent. The hands appear to be original and have some patina. The watch is ready to wear on an unworn brown leather strap with contrasting stitching and a silver toned clasp. The Swiss (Buren) made 17 jewel caliber 639 manual wind movement was fully serviced May 2019 and is running well and currently performing at +/- 56 seconds per day.
