empressissi™ is pleased to offer this gorgeous, early and fine quality American made HAMILTON dress watch for men from the late 30s in design known as the DODSON in gold filled.

This Hamilton watch measures 26mm side to side (excluding crown) and 37mm from top lug to bottom lug and is modest in size even for vintage standards.
