Birth year Hamilton help

I'd like to add a nice but practical birth year Hamilton to my humble collection. Born in '57. An automatic or manual wind I'm not picky in that regard. No electrics.

Windsor 17 Jewel "Incarbloc" info?

Local CL has a couple of vintage watches listed that I cant find much information on. No info given other than a photo of the dials and a price for the two. The other is a Barton.
Can anyone share any info on these makers?

'48 Hamilton Nordon CLD and early 70's(?) Omega Seamaster Deville

Rookie in vintage watches and photography so be gentle. Great site folks. Already had help from watchdoc and stryfox on a '49 Buvola. Looking forward to lurking and learning.

These were my dads. Both run beautifully.

Re: Bulova Excellency date of birth help?

Thank s so much watchdoc. I just returned from a watch shop where the shop keep opened the piece up to reveal the movements which read: USA Bulova Watch Co, 21 Jewels, 7AK (movement) and a stamped 49.
