  • More Info: The Byrd was included in Hamilton's famous Explorer Series. It utilizes the Hamilton caliber 401 movement, one of the rarest of Hamilton's movements used in wristwatch production. The $150 original retail price was extraordinarily expensive during the Great Depression, so very few Byrd models sold. Production for this variation was around 285 watches. Serial # H50154. One of the most collectible Hamilton watches. TO OUR KNOWLEDGE, THIS IS THE ONLY HAMILTON BYRD CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR SALE. YOU CAN OWN A BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF AMERICAN HISTORY!
