Serial Number S26378 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: This Hamilton Railroad was given to my father by
my grandfather (his father) prior to passing in
1961. My father believes his father purchased
this watch in or around 1935, possibly earlier in
the twenties. How could the database reflect a
production date of 1962?
Curator Response: The later production years for specific Hamilton 950Bs are difficult to pinpoint with precision. It is possible this particular watch was manufacturered as early as the 1950s. However, it defntiely would not date as early as the 1930s.
