Rocin TIM E. on /ie 'hi hwoys offhe ky! Boeing mailplane flying the transcontinental air mail, express and passenger route over the Rocky Mountains. BUFFETED by blustery gusts ... blinded by swirls of white from snow-filled skies... the air mail man flies on. There is a port to be made-and made on time. And so Hamilton, the "Watch of Railroad Accuracy" is finding its way into the pockets and around the wrists of the men who guide the mail planes of America. A Hamilton was with Commander Byrd on his flight to the North Pole in 1926; Hamil tons-sixty of them-are timing his present Antarctic Expedition. Hamiltons clocked the epochal flight of Lieutenants Hegenberger and Maitland from San Francisco to Honolulu. Let us send you a copy of "The Time keeper," showing and describing all Hamil tons.
