Hamilton Fontainebleau Automatic Watch
A stainless steel, unusual square-cased automatic watch named after the famous French palace: Fontainebleau. Located 55 kilometers southeast of Paris it is one of the largest royal Chateaux in France. This interesting watch came off the back of the famous Heuer Monaco launched in 1969. The metallic silver dial has the date window set at the six o' clock position, same as with the Monaco. The watch is powered by the Hamilton automatic, 21 jewel, caliber 64A. The hour markers are unusual as they are all set on the horizontal, giving a uniform and great look. The dial contains no luminous material, along with the straight baton hand set. The watch is fitted to its original NSA-made, signed Hamilton bracelet. Again, NSA was contracted to also make bracelets for the likes of Heuer and Breitling at this time. The quality of this watch throughout is great, and the case remains unpolished and in strong condition, with wear commensurate with age. If the desire is there to find an unusual and great looking watch, look no further than this.
