The 6B was considered to be HamiltonÕs equivalent of the IWC ÒMark XIÓ. Issued to the British RAF in the 1970s, it has the correct marks on the back, oversized 35 mm steel case with big crown, and tritium and Broad Arrow symbols on the dial. The dial on this watch is not signed Hamilton, which is considered sterile, and is desirable to collectors. The tritium luminous material has aged to a beautiful sand color that gives this RAF watch an extremely attractive appearance.
Dial and hands in excellent condition. Luminous material in the dial and hands fully intact and aged to a beautiful creamy color; luminous material in the dial with few dark spots and slightly darker than luminous material in the hands. Case with correct military marking on the caseback and light scratches throughout consistent with age and wear. Movement running at time of cataloging. Overall in very nice condition.
Any reference to condition in a condition report will not include a full description of condition, and for example, may not specify all faults, alteration, adaptation, mechanical replacements or imperfections to the movement, case, or dial. Colors and shades may look different online or in printed materials than they look on physical inspection, and images may not clearly show the condition of a lot. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot in person and make their own evaluation of the lot. They must understand that any statement made by Fortuna Auction LLC ("Fortuna") is merely a subjective, qualified statement and does not constitute a representation, warranty, or assumption of liability by Fortuna.

Fortuna does not guarantee the authenticity of any individual component parts, such as wheels, hands, crowns, crystals, screws, bracelets or leather bands, since subsequent repairs and restoration work may have resulted in the replacement of original parts.
Pre-owned watches, unless still in original packaging or never worn, will likely have some degree of wear and scratches. This should be expected for many of the watches offered in auction. Even if a watch is running and keeping time, bidders and buyers should expect that all movements will require maintenance. Fortuna recommends that all successful buyers promptly take their watches to a professional watchmaker for evaluation.
