empressissi™ is pleased to offer this pretty uncommon and elegant American made HAMILTON dress watch for men from the mid50s in design known as the SEDGMAN in 14K solid yellow which appeared just twice, in the 1953 and 1955 catalogs.

This Hamilton watch measures 34,5mm side to side (excluding crown) and 42mm from top lug to bottom lug.
Attached to this watch is a brand new, top quality slim Italian hand made genuine leather band in dark brown tone, 16mm wide, with anti-allergic buckle in matching tone.
