This Hamilton model was known by two names during its production. Introduced in 1973 and produced through 1976, the watch was known as the Yorktowne through 1974. In 1975, the name was changed to Auto Saratoga. The Auto Yorktowne is part of several Hamilton watches, including the Auto Saratoga, that took their names from early United States Navy aircraft carriers. This watch comes with a Swiss made (ETA) Hamilton caliber 818 automatic movement. The watch features a mint condition radially brushed silver dial with applied hour markers and numerals and a black painted minute track. The domed acrylic crystal was polished clean and clear of any major defects. The stainless steel case has been hand polished with fine scratches evident. The watch comes ready to wear on stainless steel Otron bracelet. The watch comes in an original Hamilton presentation box with blue velvet lining. The 818 caliber automatic also hand winds and was serviced August 2021 and is running strong and currently performing at +/- 13 seconds per day.
