There's not a man in America who doesn't need an Accurate Watch BEFORE you can ever own a truly accurate watch you must make up of a good suit of clothes. Your jeweler will tell you that is true. Also, when you buy a high grade watch you are guaranteed against disappointment, not only by the maker; but every jeweler cheer fully gives to the buyer of a good watch a lot of service in the way of adjustments, etc., that it would be absurd for him to waste on a poor movement. In fact no class of dealer in the world gives as much service with a worth-while purchase as the retail jeweler. How much do you suppose a railroad con ductor, engineer or brakeman pays for his watch? Rarely under $25.00 . Frequently as high as $75.00. If the watch refuses to keep time within certain strict standards, it is taken out of service and the railroad man has to buy himself a new one. This seldom happens. Rail road men choose their watches so it won't happen. Now does it signify anything to you that railroad men who buy their own watches, prefer to buy the Hamilton Watch? The Hamilton is not the only watch ac cepted for railroad ser vice, by any means. S Yet a canvass of any group of railroad men (large enough to strike a national average) will show a majority of them carrying Hamiltons. When you are sufficiently weary of a watch that won't keep time, and have made up your mind to buy a real timekeeper to carry for the balance of your life, go to your jeweler and tell him so. He will show you Hamilton Watches at $25.00, $32.50, $40.00, $50.00, $60.00, $70.00 up to $150.00 for the Hamilton Masterpiece in 18k heavy gold case. He can sell you Hamilton movements alone to fit your pres ent watch case for as low as $12.25 ($13.00 in Canada) and they are accurate, guar anteed watches with the price in plain figures on the box. If you want to know more of the simple logic of buying a good watch Write for the Hamilton Watch i Book-"The Timekeeper" It shows all Hamilton Models for men and women, explains the mean ines of technical watch terms and throws a flood of light on the problem of buying and owning a watch that will really keep accurate time.
