Hamilton Titan I and II

The Hamilton Titan was the Poor Man’s Van Horn! The case was identical to the Van Horn apart from being made from cheaper 10K gold filled, while the Van Horn was solid gold; the dials are similar. It first appeared in 1957 and can be found with either the 500 or 500A movement. It has either a white or black dial:

Lastly, a Titan II which bears no resemblance to the earlier Titan:
