These Hamiltons were used aboard WW2 and cold war aircraft. The 24 hour dial is unique and desireable for navigators. Price seems reasonable if all original. Notice the fine fast slow adjustment screw over the balance wheel. With patience using the Audacity app this watch should be adjustable to better than 5 seconds per day if kept at constant temperature.

It has a 24 hour inner dial marked "GCT" and 60 minute outer dial with sweep second hand. This is a 16 size watch, meaning the diameter of the movement plate beneath the dial is about 43 mm. The 22 jewel movement is freshly overhauled. Price $525.00. http://www.northernpartners.com/hamilton.htm (near the top of the page)
