This 1931 time piece was an upgraded version in its time with the raised 18k gold numerals on the dial. The case and crystal are in extremely good condition considering their age with no major flaws or brassing. The blued hands add a very distinctive look to the dial. The strap is a newer lightly used genuine ostrich leather with virtually no wear. A lot of people wonder how Hamilton named their watch models. Initially the watches were named after the shape of the watch... Cushion, Oval, Square, etc. When a model was revised, Hamilton often just added a "-B" to then end... Square B, Barrel B. Next, Hamilton named models after resort areas and places... Meadowbrook, Coronado. They named them after famous explorers... Byrd, Stanley. Eventually they named them after people associated with Hamilton (employees, friends, etc.). In 1931, Hamilton had a mixture of names going on and a lot of new models were introduced. One was the Greenwich. The Greenwich was produced through 1934 and is considered tough to find especially in the high-end option as noted in the catalog picture.
