Note: The dial on this movement is a 4 post dial. I
don’t own the movement so I can’t give info.
On the location, but it looks to be the standard
Hamilton position for 4 post dials. The watch is
for sale on eBay as of today. Hope this helps.

Serial Number 75616 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: Only one complete movement. Total of five made
other four are incomplete. It is a two finger
bridge half-plate movement. For Hayden Wheeler
movements you are using the total production of
1800 within this production there are 8 basic
designs. See the NAWCC Bulletin articles authored
by Lasser.

By the way, even number serials for Hayden W.
Wheelers are open face movements and odd serial
numbers are hunters and there are no lever set
movements that are lever set movements. All
pendent set movements are positive set - all
movements require four footed dials.
