Hamilton Odyssey Oddity - Flight II Prototype

Flight II Hamilton Electric Prototypes

Wanted to continue on the subject from an earlier post about Hamilton and their current limited edition X-01 (prop watch of "2001 - A Space Odyssey").

Back in 1966, Hamilton (John Bergey, Ed Speakes and Ken Durr) created this alternate futuristic concept watch that Stanley Kubrick didn't choose. A variation of one of the rarest Hamilton Electric Flight II models. Recently up for auction on Ebay, I missed my opportunity to own one of the three shown (without movement).

See more about it on the NAWCC message board.
