My friend, who died in 1979 at age 86, had a Hamilton Milton 982 watch. He wore it all the time-including while he was gardening. He passed away while wearing it.

His neice gave the watch, case, and box to me soon after he died. All are in excellent condition. I have the guarantee as well as the "packed by.." paper.

Was wondering about what year would he have purchased it? How much (although not interested in selling) is it worth?

Serial # of watch: J-545951

Serial # of case: J177598

Thanks for your help and interest.

The Milton model ran from 1948-52. It looks like this serial number correlates to a 1949 build.

The Milton is a fairly common model (and popular it seems). I don't "track" values for specific models per se but it appears from watching many at auction that Miltons will sell in the mid-hundred range depending on condition, say $120 at the low end and $180 at the high end.
