The HAMILTON Franklin features a sub-second display, curved crystal, cut hour markers & a rail-track grids. This is a 1940's model, which runs on a caliber 752 manual-wind movement.

The HAMILTON Margrove has a small case, typical for its time period, when watchmakers were racing to produce the smallest, thinnest & lightest timepiece - a trend started by CARTIER, with its Tank models.
