    Hamilton 6B-9101000 NEW ARRIVAL !!!!

    I got it !

    After a second look and after all the fantastic information I received from the other thread, I decided to make an offer and it was accepted. I managed to remove the caseback which was incredibly tight and used my air blower to give it a puff over, the balance wheel moves freely, but it will not tick at all, hands move freely and crown appears to wind. I will get it away for a service but it will have to wait until I can save some pennies as my account is well and truly in overdraft !!!!!!
















    Have not even cleaned it but I really had to get it on a really nasty nato




    Cheers

    If you are interested in miscellanea around these watches, and haven't already seen them, you might be interested in:

    1. An article written by Kenneth Gordon for the Horological Journal on the DEF-3 standard for a general service watch which yielded the Omega 53, Smiths W10 and Hamilton 6B amongst others.

    2. A Hamilton advertisement for a version available to the public marketed on the back of the RAF supply.

    Congrats, that is a cool old watch. Based on "it will not tick at all" and having been a victim of it several times over the years I am guessing it has a broken mainspring, a service will fix it up.
