For the past twenty years he has carried a Hamil ton Watch, and it has given him such splendid service that lie likes to tell about it. But that isn't unusual-most Hamilton owners are like that. Any man or woman that acquires a Hamil ton Watch is sure to find increasing pride in its accuracy;and appreciation of itsdependability will grow with its use. Suppose an Engineer failed to catch his trai Imagine your hurrying into a railroad station only to be told that your train isn't ready-that the engineer or con ductor has been late in getting to work that morning. But railroad men are human. It's no easier for them to be punctual than for you - except that they have been helped to an appreciation of the importance of minutes by the accurate watches they carry. A really accurate watch would help you. It would be a convenience, a source of pride, a constant urge to punctuality. Why not get a Hamilton? The Hamilton is probably the most accurate watch made, and therefore is the first favorite of railroad men everywhere. The Hamilton Watch makes an ideal gift -a sub';: compliment to those who have already achieved, an inspiration to younger folks, a daily and life-long reminder of your affection or esteem. On any occa sion when a gift is to be made, a Hamilton Watch would be fitting and appropriate. There's a model in the Hamilton line to suit every taste and purpose. Prices range from $40 to $200. Movements alone, $22 (in Canada $24.00) and up. Your jeweler will be glad to show you some of the many Hamiltons at any time. Send for "The Timekeeper"-an interesting booklet about the manufacture and care of fine watches. The different Hamiltons are illustrated, and prices given.
