1970s Hamilton Automatic Day-Date Gold Cap (Ref. 825011-4)
Hamilton was founded in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1882 and boasts a long and impressive history of breakthroughs in design and technology. While probably best known for their military associations and fantastic field watches, they've put out some really remarkable—and sometimes incredibly unique—outliers as well.
Case in point, this extremely '70s day-date. The chunky, gold-capped, shield-shaped case, gold and black dial, and quirky day-date setup all come together perfectly to offer a very unique—and uniquely affordable—time capsule.

The unique, shield-shaped gold-capped case is unpolished, boasting an impressively crisp sunburst finish with minimal signs of use. It comes with its original Hamilton signed crown and the steel case back is very clean. The watch is supplied on a handmade 2pc leather strap.
The matte black dial looks fantastic for its age, showing virtually no elements of age. The chunky champagne-gold hour markers feature creamy lume, are separated by brighter yellow rectangles minute markers and are complemented by the cigarette-style hour and minute hands. The lume in the hands matches the dial perfectly and no degradation is present in the dial of hands.
None. The watch was recently serviced and is keeping time perfectly, backed by a 1-year warranty on accurate timekeeping.
