This TV-shaped Hamilton is called the "Lord Lancaster A" but it is so reminiscent of the early TV screens that it is Americana personified. This model debuted in 1962 and was a big hit! The movement is a top of the line 21 jewel housed in a yellow gold filled case that measures 35mm from lug to lug and 26mm in width.

I hate to admit I remember this watch.
This is the typical styling of many of the clock radios of the late 50's and early 60's as well.
Thanks for posting this. It brings back memories.

That one is mis-identified. It's actually the "Gary," first offered in 1962.
Thank you for clarifying! I was always under the impression that mine was a Gary, and when I checked your excellent reference book I saw that the Lancaster had the diamond markers. However, I also know that dials were offered in slight variations, so I thought maybe I had been wrong about the Gary. It would not have been the first time! Your wealth of knowledge is a real asset here :thumbup:
