1970s Hamilton Automatic Day-Date (Ref. 841004-3)

Despite initially specializing in pocket watches, the brand boasts an impressive history of breakthroughs in the design and technology of wristwatches. The brand has also long been a favorite among die-hard watch enthusiasts. Thankfully for those enthusiasts, in the 1960s and '70s, Hamilton combined their exceptional technology with the funk revolution of watch design, giving birth to hit after hit of color and quirk. This Automatic Day-Date is just one of those hits, featuring a striking blue dial encased in a unique cushion case.
