King Albert Buys a Hamilton Watch IF you were a king, and wanted a watch - the best watch obtainable- how would you make your selection ? King Albert sought the advice of America's railroad men on his recent tour, asking their opinion as to the most ac curate, most dependable watch. The answer, almost unanimously, was-"The Hamilton." There's no better judge of watch worth, King Albert believes, than the American railroad man. So King Albert, able to pay many times the price, got a Hamilton. Wouldn't the watch that is good enough for King Albert be a good watch for you to have? And wouldn't that sort of a watch make a splendidly appropriate gift for any occasion? In the Hamilton line there's every kind of watch, from ladies' bracelet models to the sturdy railroad types-but they are all Hamiltons. Let your jeweler show you some of the many Hamilton models today. Prices from $38.00 to $200. Movements alone, $20.00 (in Canada $23.00) and up. Send for "TheTimekeeper." It's an interest ing little booklet about the manufacture and care of fine watches. The various Hamilton models are shown and prices given. HAMILTON WATCH COMPANY Lancaster, Pa.
