OF EIGHT HAMILTONS IN EXPLORER II ... PRAISED BY CAPT. A. W. STEVENS WHEN the Explorer II rose from the Black Hills of South Dakota to more than 72,000 feet into the stratosphere, a world record, the many scientific instruments in the gondola were timed by eight Hamilton Watches. Accurate timing was essential to the successful recording of the valuable scientific data secured. Just as in the flight of the Explorer I in 1934, Hamilton Watches gave faultless service. Thus Hamilton accuracy played an integral part in the success of this latest National Geo graphic-U. S. Army Stratosphere Expedition.
