Confidential . . . TO HUSBANDS... The wives who are leaders in society today realize that now it's the fashion (not just the fad) to keep their appoint ments and start their theatre parties on the dot. This calls for a supremely accurate watch-a watch that ticks gracefully along always telling exact time. If your wife is the gracious, under standing woman we believe she is, she will want Accuracy first of all. But lest the beauty of the Hamilton on this page mislead you, sir, let us re mind you that Hamilton is the "Watch of Railroad Accuracy"-and a living gift that goes on living! TO WIVES... Your husband may have told you he really doesn't want anything for Christ mas. But there's one thing he may need and not know it. Twenty times a day in his struggle for success he may be hampered by a watch he himself only half trusts. Yet every investigation proves that the successful man is time-minded. His time means money. His watch must be accurate. So give him a Hamilton. For years it has timed the country's fastest trains . .. and nestled in the pockets of many of America's foremost Captains of Industry. Its very name assures you of uncanny Accuracy. liamilton 7;Ze1 ' Qwic/b % <2 C Letus sendyouacopyof "The Timekeeper," an interesting illustrated booklet, showing a complete lineofbeauti ful Hamiltons.
