Comments: This watch has a mid to late '60s look to it.  

The watch features a very interesting functioning "electronic" mechanism.  A battery actually serves
the purpose of a main spring and the balance ticks like a mechanical wind watch.

These watches were special ordered from Hamilton Watch Co. by Sears and Roebuck in the sixties and marketed with the Tradition name.

This watch is in mint cosmetic and running condition.
