America's Pacific Fleet, Amer ica's Atlantic Fleet, America's fighting ships on the seven seas, depend for their navigation on the most precise portable timing device known-the ship's chro nometer. From it the ship's offi cers and men set their watches -on it depends the accuracy of the ship's navigation. Before the war, chronometers were always built in Europe. Today Hamilton is proud it has been drafted to make chronometers of great pre cision for America's ships. Troops that pass inthe night are one reason for the tremen dous speedup in activity on U. S. railroads. Railroads are shifting men from one road to another, sharing equipment, doing a mag nificent job. More than ever, trains depend, lives depend on the accuracy of railroad watches. More than ever, railroads insist on constant time inspection. And more than ever, a railroad man likes to be ready for inspection with a precision-accurate, rail road-accurate Hamilton! Hamilton's major effort now is going into the war program. But there are Hamiltons still . available. And Hamilton's long experience in building watches for railroad men and precision instruments for the government insures the greatest possible ac curacy in every Hamilton Watch. Precious metal cases (except military watches), 17 jewels or more. Styles for men and women. Hamilton Watch Company, 2104 Columbia Avenue, Lancaster, Pa. COPR. 1048, BY HAMILTON WATCH CO.
