This is a 1936 Hamilton pocket watch.  My great-great grandfather Luigi Tirico bought this in the 1930s.  He passed away in November of 1986.  The watch was then given to my father by his great-uncle Joseph in 1987.  He has kept it for 32 years in a glass case in his room.  He plans to keep it in the family by passing it down.  It still functioning and he wears it on a chain in his pocket on special occasions.
