reverse side of case back embossed with "HAMILTON WATCH CO", "HONG KONG"

This tells us that this watch was manufactured during the 1970s when Hong Kong was a British Crown Cologny, opening its doors to trade. Many Swiss watchmakers began outsourcing their metal parts from Hong Kong at this time, namely, BULOVA, WITTNAUER, WALTHAM & HAMILTON.
