7 Popular Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic Watches

A key feature of the Hamilton Viewmatic collection is that they all have exhibition style casebacks that allow you to take a look at the inner workings of the watch through the rear of the watch. This is one of my favourite features on a timepiece which is why I was looking forward to putting this list together.
Below is an example of an exhibition caseback, to view more images of any of the watches simply follow through to their more detailed product pages.
